An activist in Northeast Nigeria and also ardent supporter of President Muhammadu Buhari, has rejected her appointment as chairperson of the Governing Council of the Federal University, Dutse, Jigawa State.
Najatu Muhammed, conveyed her decision to reject the appointment in a letter to the Office of the Minister of Education, Adamu Adamu.
President Buhari recently approved the sack of 13 Vice Chancellors including 12 of them from 12 Universities that were established by former president Goodluck Jonathan.
This led to the appointment of Mrs Najatu Mohammed; an appointment she has vehemently rejected.
She went as far as posting a newspaper advert to that effect.
In the letter entitled, “Reconstitution of the Governing Councils of 12 Federal Universities”, Mrs. Muhammed, who is also a politician from Kano State, said she was not consulted before the announcement was made in the media.
“I, Najatu Muhammad, wish to thank you so much for considering me worthy of being appointed the chairperson of Dutse Federal University.
It’s however, unfortunate that I was not consulted before the announcement in the media.
“I also regret that I have to use the same medium to announce that I can’t accept the appointment for some personal reasons.
“I will however remain an ardent supporter of President Muhammadu Buhari in his effort in charting a new course for this country. A course that we pray will put this country back on the path of progress.
“I will also continue to support the presidents fight against corruption and other ills of this country. My unflinching support for the President will remain for Allah’s sake and country.
“I pray that Allah will continue to guide and protect our President.
“Long Live the Federal Republic of Nigeria.”
