Dr. Tubi equally commended the Vice-Chancellor for the remarkable achievements (both perceptible and imperceptible) the University recorded under her stewardship, most especially the ongoing massive development of the University Permanent Site (Felele Campus).

The Chaplain described the Vice-Chancellor as a woman of great faith and humility who never seek for any special seat or recognition in the Chaplaincy. He specially thanked Professor Miri for her life of dedication and generosity to the Chaplaincy, as well as her contributions to the development of Federal University Lokoja.

In her remarks, Professor Angela Freeman Miri, who was overwhelmed with joy, recounted how the Reverend Father along with some Members of the University Community received and prayed for her upon her arrival in the University on 25th February, 2016. She stated that that warm reception and prayers actually prepared her for the task ahead. Professor Miri expressed deep appreciation to Rev. Fr.
