The Pro-Chancellor and Chairman, Governing Council of the University, Abba Alkasum, has formally unveiled the new identity of the Federal University of Agriculture Makurdi (FUAM) as Joseph Sarwuan Tarka University Makurdi (JSTUM).

It would be recalled that although the University was renamed by President, Muhammadu Buhari about one year ago, its name remained unchanged because the University management said it was yet to receive a letter authorising the name change from the National Universities Commission.

However, about two weeks ago, during the combined convocation of the University, the Pro-Chancellor in his speech formally informed the Government and people of the state as well as the general public of the re-naming of the university.

Alkasum who extolled the virtues of the late J S Tarka explained further that the Governing Council of the University had already set the machinery in motion for immediate implementation of government directive on the matter.
