State University gets new Pro-Chancellor
There seems to be a massive Exodus from Kano's top University.
This also means he's Chairman of the Governor Council of the University.
We know this because this information was shared in a statement issued by the Secretary to the State Government, Alhaji Adamu Abdulkadir, on Monday in the state capital, Dutse.
Prof. Babura is a Professor of Oral Literature with special interest on Northern Nigerian Literature and former lecturer in the Department of English and French Languages, Bayero University, Kano. Bayero University is one of the largest universities in Northern Nigeria.
According to the statement, also appointed is Dr Muhammad Isah the Chairman, Governing Council of the Binyaminu Usman Polytechnic, Hadejia. Dr Isah was the Deputy Dean, Faculty of Law, Bayero University, Kano, until the appointment.
Also, Alhaji Muhammad Usman the Chairman, Governing Council of the College of Legal and Islamic Studies, Ringim.
Prof. Kabiru Isyaku was appointed a Member of the Governing Council of the Sule Lamido University, Kafin Hausa.
Isyaku, a Professor of Education, was formerly of the Department of Education, Bayero University, Kano.
The statement said that all the appointments took immediate effect.
Looks like an exodus.
The Jigawa State government clearly went shopping in the Bayero University Kano. Bayero University has some of the best faculties in Northern Nigeria.
It is also one of the most popular universities in the country. At the last JAMB, over 60,000 students applied to get into Bayero University Kano.
This could just be as a result of it being a University at the North's commercial centre. It could also be because the lineup there is quite strong.
Hopefully, this is going to be a win for Sule Lamido University, Jigawa.
The Governor also deserves some credit.
Governor Muhammad Badaru Abubakar is making a major push in Jigawa State as regards education. Besides the massive efforts made with disease prevention, he's making a heavy push into education. His administration is willing to pay girls 19,000 to attend school!
Hopefully, the methods are sustainable and start to yield results.
