A former chairman of the Senior Staff Association of Nigerian Universities (SSANU), Ahmadu Bello University (ABU), Zaria chapter has urged President Muhammadu Buhari to appoint a new Pro-Chancellor and Chairman, Governing Council, for smooth running of the university.
Comrade Muhammad Gimba Alfa, who spoke in Zaria, said the university needs the council for effective management.
The former Pro-Chancellor, AVM Mukhtar Muhammad, died on October 1, 2017 and the position has remained vacant since then.
Alfa said; “I find it absolutely necessary to urge the president to expedite action in the appointment of Pro-Chancellor and
Chairman, Governing Council for ABU. I pray Allah to guide the president to give ABU the like of AVM Mukhtar Muhammad, a person of integrity and transparent honesty. We need a council chairman who will have the fear of Allah in order to ensure fairness and respect for the rule of law in conducting the affairs of ABU Zaria.”
