Kulp Theological Seminary in Nigeria welcomes 36 students into degree and diploma programs

By Zakariya Musa

Provost Dauda A. Gava of Kulp Theological Seminary (KTS), an institution of Ekklesiyar Yan’uwa a Nigeria (EYN, the Church of the Brethren in Nigeria) and affiliated to the University of Jos, charged the class of newly admitted students to study hard after choosing where he called the right institution of study.

He made this statement at the 12th Matriculation of the Seminary held on Sept. 17 at the seminary chapel. “You have chosen the right place by coming here,” he said.

Thirty-six students were admitted into fulltime degree and diploma programs for the 2021-2022 academic session.

Gava further encouraged the students to study hard and abide by the school rules and regulations, and to be security conscious in the worsening security situation of the country. He also used this avenue to encourage people to visit the seminary website, where they can download an entrance form in order to ease traveling to obtain the form at the seminary.

The EYN director of education, who was represented by his deputy Abba Yaya Chiroma, also advised the matriculated students to manage their time well. “If you need to achieve, you must understand that the distance between matriculation and graduation is short.”

One of the seminary lecturers, Gulla Nghagyiya, in a goodwill message stated that “hard work pays…. Be light bearers as you focus on your studies,” he added.
