The Taraba State University, Jalingo, has recorded its first Doctor of Philosophy Degree graduate 13 years after its establishment.


A news agency has reported that this feat was recorded after Hanawa Rufus successfully defended his thesis for Mathematics Education.


The External Examiner, Prof. Benjamin Imoko, pronounced Rufus qualified in character and learning, and awarded him the degree on Tuesday.


“Having satisfied every requirement needed, I pronounce you as a holder of PhD in Mathematics Education,” he said.


Reacting to the development, Prof. Vincent Tenebe, the Vice Chancellor of the institution, said he was very delighted to see the university attain such height during his tenure.


While congratulating Rufus on his achievement, Tenebe called on all other PhD as well as Masters Degree students in the university to concentrate on their research to succeed.


“I want to urge other PhD and Masters Degree students to concentrate more on their studies because at these levels, it is not just theory but also practical.
