It has been reported that only 7 out of the 27 professors vying for the office of the Vice Chancellor of the Benue State University passed the selection examination. It was also gathered that Eugene Aliegba, a professor of Political Science of over 20 years’ experience, withdrew from the examination.
According to Aliegba, it was unfair for a professor of over 25 years standing to write an examination with another professor who has just two or three years’ experience, insisting that there must be a set standard.
An interview has been scheduled this week to select three candidates among whom the new vice chancellor would be picked. However, according to sources, Prof. Tor Iorapuu, who came tops in the examination, is likely to emerge vice-chancellor.
Others who passed the examinations were: Saasongu Unongu, Ama Doki, Vitalis Tarhule Verlumun, U.D. Ikoni and Omudu Agbo.
