The Archbishop, Antonio Guido Filipazzi, the Nuncio to Nigeria, on Wednesday, 1st December, decried how man has forgotten the essence of existence, and gone in search of mundane and inferior things. He stated this while presiding over the holy mass at Veritas University Abuja, as part of activities to usher in the 2021/2022 academic calendar. According to him, only God satisfies, which indefinitely, exceeds all other pleasures that man seeks. This essentially is the ultimate goal of university education.
The diplomat, also took a tour round the various development projects under the administration of the incumbent Vice Chancellor, Rev. Fr. Prof. Hyacinth Ichoku, including the ultramodern girls hostel. The representative of his Holiness Pope Fracis, was overwhelmed with joy at the sight of massive projects ongoing simultaneously, at different locations of the University, despite the global economic recession.
The Vice Chancellor, while welcoming the clergy amidst the mammoth crowd of staff and students, said the visit was symbolic and in recognition of the prominent position of Veritas University, as a fast growing private university in Nigeria. It would be recalled that this is the second diplomatic visit to Veritas University, barely a week after the Embassy of the United States, visited.
