Following recent events in the institution, the management of Benue State University (BSU), Makurdi has constituted a 10-member committee to coordinate fasting and prayer sessions for peace, harmony, progress and development.
A few weeks ago, the university was rocked with protests by students over th introduction of new conditional charges that resulted in a hike in school fees.
According to the Vice Chancellor, Professor Moses Kembe, the committee also called the “Holy Assembly” will seek devine intervention against evil forces against the university such as the students protest and incessant strikes by staff unions.
Consequently, he said a monthly session of prayer and fasting will be held on every last Sunday of the month and will be rotated between the Catholic and NKST churches on campus.
The Chairman of the committee, Rev. Fr. Dr. Pius Ajiki praised the initiative and urged the university community to dedicate their lives to God in order to allow His will to be done in the institution.
