VP Tahir to Prospective Students: Choose University That Offers Value

Value is what everyone expects when they pay for a service. However, not everyone gets it.

VP Abba Tahir says AUN offers value for money and advised students and their parents to invest wisely because choosing a university could be one of the most critical decisions in a person's life.

The VP for University Relations was addressing university-ready, high school students from Yola who had come to the campus on November 23, 2019.

"AUN prepares students to become job creators," he told them. "At AUN, every student regardless of what he or she is studying must take at least one course in entrepreneurship. It is fundamental; it is critical. You must because it gives you hands-on skills to know how to run a business. We train students to graduate and establish themselves to create jobs."

He explained that the broad-based, American-style liberal arts at AUN which offers students the opportunity of knowing a little bit of everything are more relevant to Nigeria as the University prepares graduates to readily fit into any aspect of society.

'The direction of the world is now in the convergence and confluence of knowledge."

The 90 students he addressed came from five schools in the Yola environs: Fombina Royal Academy, ABTI International Secondary School, AUN Academy, Al-mashkur Academy, and Ahmadu Ribadu College.
