FUAM Gets Renamed to Joseph Sarwuan Tarka University

Federal University of Agriculture Makurdi (FUAM) Has Been Renamed to Joseph Tarka University (JTU) by the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria - Muhammadu Buhari.

The governing council of the institution unveiled the new name in acknowledgment of the Federal Government under President Muhammadu Buhari which in 2019 changed the name of the university.
Federal University Makurdi (FUAM), is now Joseph Sarwuan Tarka University


Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Anande Richard Kimbir, had during that year’s matriculation explained that the federal government has changed the name of the institution from Federal University of Agriculture Makurdi (FUAM) to Joseph Tarka University (JTU).

According to him, the delay in effecting the change was because an official communication was being awaited to specify the mandate, vision, and mission of the university’s new status.
