The Vice-Chancellor of the University of Jos, Professor Sebastian Maimako, led an inspection team comprising of several members of his management staff, on an inspection tour to the Faculty of Arts located at the Naraguta Campus on the 13th of November, 2017.

While addressing the members of the press at the site of the construction, the Vice Chancellor stated that by the grace of God, the work on this project would be completed before the end of this year and that by early next year, it should be fully ready for use.
He also disclosed that he and his team are excited over the possible completion of the project as at when due, which he believes ‘won’t exceed this year’. He also said that he believes that the students are also excited about the development.
He commended the contractor in charge of the project, Christopher Imhagwe, for his efforts and sustained tempo of work on the site for quite a while.
The VC disclosed that today’s visit is his second visit to the site in two months and that he is pleased with the progress recorded so far.
He went further to ask the contractor if there were any challenges or complains, but the contractor told the Vice Chancellor that at the moment there were no challenges and, that he will inform the Vice Chancellor if any challenge or complaint arises.
Before departing, he appreciated the Dean of the Faculty for hosting him and also commended the students that were around the site of the construction, for their patience and understanding throughout the wait for the provision of more lecture halls.
He informed the students that the issue of non-availability of lecture halls will be a thing of the past after the completion of the project.
