The APC national leader, alongside the Governor of Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), Dr. Godwin Emefiele; Minister of State for Petroleum, Chief Timipre Sylva; a former Governor of Adamawa State, Vice Admiral Murtala Nyako (rtd); and Group Managing Director, Nigeria National Petroleum Cooperation (NNPC), Mallam Mele Kyari bagged the university Honourary Doctorate Degrees in various fields.
Tinubu said, “Terrible people and strong forces want to break Nigeria’s appointment with its greater destiny. These people have unleashed terror and violent crime against us. By attacking agricultural players across the nation, they seek to ravage the farming community and visit misery on the rest of the country through food scarcity and food costs that poor people can not afford.
“In effect, these mean forces seek to impose a food production and distribution crisis on us by disrupting strategically critical agricultural areas and activities. All of these has underscored the importance of the farming sector to our collective condition.”
