|Kaduna State University (kasu)to Honour Sen Makarfi Tomorrow by isahrabson: 12:01pm On Dec 07|
6th December 2018
Kaduna State University (KASU), will confer an Honorary Doctorate Degree in Management, on Distinguished Senator Ahmed Mohammed Makarfi at its convocation ceremony on Saturday, 8th December 2018.
The decision to honour Makarfi with the award, according to the Vice Chancellor of the University, Professor Mohammed Tanko, was in recognition of the Senator's numerous contributions to nation building across time.
Some of the contributions, according to the Vice Chancellor, apart from establishing the University in the first place, included, among others, the political and administrative dexterity with which he handled issues as Governor of Kaduna State from 1999 to 2007, during which the state witnessed massive infrastructural developments in both rural and urban areas, the dogged and successful pursuit of peace and harmony in the complex and multi ethnic and multi religious state as well as deft management of conflicts, his part founding as well as membership of the Board of Trustees of the Institute of Peace and Conflict Resolution, Abuja before becoming governor, his services as Chairman Senate Committee on Finance for eight years, the resolve to remain in the PDP to rescue it at its hour of dire need and the commitment and dexterity with which he brought the party back to life at a time many had given it up for dead. All these and others, the University believed were evidence of Senator Makarfi's "democratic resoluteness and passion for Nigeria, borne out of the need to build a strong, united, prosperous and resourceful nation", and for which the award was fitting.
