Let me convey my appreciation; as AKSU VICE CHANCELLOR and thanks to all students and staff of Akwa Ibom State University (AKSU) for the successes recorded in 2018.

It is pertinent to note that, we still have much more territories to conquer in the years ahead; I am therefore appealing to us to spare no effort in the realization of the University’s mandate in 2019.


The year 2018 was; characterized with various landmark achievements and this would not have been possible without your; dedication and commitment to the growth of the University.

In 2018, the University met and surpassed her targets in some key areas. We are indeed very thankful to God almighty!

In the course of 2018, our staff and students demonstrated their academic prowess in various competitions by winning awards/laurels both locally and internationally, this was; made possible by the concerted effort of Management in active collaboration with the University Governing Council in ensuring that an excellent environment is provided for learning, research and innovation to thrive.






From the day I assumed office; as AKSU Vice Chancellor of , my fidelity to the course of building a University we can be proud of, has not been in doubt. Last year, the National University Commission (NUC) team visited; our University for a routine accreditation exercise and it is noteworthy that, all academic programmes in AKSU have been fully accredited.

This is the outcome of our unwavering commitment to be one of the leading Universities in Nigeria.

The importance of strategic planning in building a young University like ours cannot be over-emphasized. To this end, we are developing a ten (10) year Strategic Plan for the University which; would serve as a roadmap for future developmental strides till the year 2029.

This would also; ensure stability is maintained in our changing environment and increasing competition is constructively responded to during the period under consideration!
