The Proprietor of Top Faith Schools, Dr Emmanuel Abraham has intimated the Minister of Niger Delta Affairs, Senator Godswill Akpabio on his plan to establish Top Faith University in Essien Udim Local Government Area of Akwa Ibom State.
At a presentation of the prototype of the institution to Senator Akpabio in his office in Abuja, Dr Abraham said the proposed Institution had fulfilled most of the requirements and was awaiting the nod of the National Universities Commission.
A visibly elated Senator Akpabio said it was a special honour to him, that Dr Abraham came personally to update him on the proposed University in his Local Government Area considering his passion and love for education.
Senator Akpabio thanked Dr Abraham for leaving his previous job as a banker of note to serve the people through establishment of educational institutions.
According to Senator Akpabio, “today from nursery school to primary school, to secondary school, all the way down to the university, you have left your mark and this is what you are putting up now. This is amazing coming from an individual. This is not state government, this is not Federal government. It comes from the sweat of one individual. This is ingenuity in all ramifications,” he said.
Senator Akpabio prayed God to continue to keep Dr Abraham and strengthen him. “God will grant you and your family peace that passes all understanding and continue to endow you with the wisdom to serve humanity.
“On our part I assure you that whenever we find ourselves, we will continue to assist, we will continue to impact, we will ontinue to stand by you because you are not doing this for yourself, you are not doing it for your children, you are doing it for future Nigerians. I think you are one of those that should be honoured in this country and God has already honoured you.
“Thank you for this honour, I will definitely come and inspect the schools by myself. I have been to the secondary school but now the proposed university that is almost coming on stream with staff quarters, laboratories and everything to make for a complete institution.
“With this kind of structures that we are looking at now, this is definitely second to none and I think this will compete with any university in Nigeria or any university in the world.
Thank you for bringing the world to Essien Udim Local Government Area in Akwa Ibom State and taking us back into the comity of nations educationally. Thank you our great proprietor. May you live long in good health in Jesus name,” Senator Akpabio said.
