The Vice Chancellor’s Welcome Speech


It is my pleasure to welcome you to Usmanu Danfodiyo University, Sokoto, a University known for its peaceful environment and academic excellence. You applied to come here because you wanted to have the best in both character development and learning. I, therefore, assure you that the Management and staff of this University are committed to helping you achieve your objectives. However, nothing can be achieved in the absence of peace. Without peace, the environment will not be conducive for learning; which you are primarily here for. I, therefore, trust that you will be disciplined and of good behaviour; attributes which students of the University are known for. On our own part, we will do everything within our resources to ensure your welfare so that your period of stay in the University will be both rewarding and enjoyable.
Prof. L.S. Bilbis
