“THE PROCESS AND SELECTION OF THE NEW VICE CHANCELLOR OF ABU ZARIA IS FREE, FAIR AND TRANSPARENT. “
BY AREWA YOUTH VANGUARD OF NIGERIA
We at Arewa Youth Vanguard, (the largest Youth Movement in Nigeria comprising over millions of members nationwide) read with dismay as it has come to our notice that a group by name Zazzau Group rejects new ABU VC, wants processes that led to the successful emergence of the new vice Chancellor elect be suspended.
Comrd Kabir Uthman who’s the National President of the Arewa Youth Vanguard of Nigeria, noted with Concern that ZEMDA’s submissions are surprising, looking at the fact that the appointment of the new vice chancellor was free, fair and conducted in compliance with rules and regulations of the university.
With all sense of propriety the said “Zaria Emirate Development Association” (ZEMDA) lacks the locus standi to call for suspension of any process relating to or conducted process of the appointment of the new V.C, Reason being that they are body with no clear objectives for the development of Zazzau Emirate, talkeless of a reputable university owned by Federal govt. for the nation to the extent of shooting their eyes to the obvious narratives.
It is undoubtedly clear that prof. Kabiru Bala held many positions in the university and has contributed immensely to the development of the university and Nigeria at large.
However; Comr. Sani Ishaq noted with high sense of objectivity that Professor kabir Bala is excellently qualified, competent, hardworking, and principled icon of peace, unity, progress and an advocate of due process, who enjoys the support of all and sundry within Ahmadu Bello university community, its environs and the nation at large.
The said Association failed woefully on point and quoted verbatim sections of law or statutes that were violated during the process. And in the same vein the alleged irregularity by SENSE was not in anyway unsubstantiated which they said “did not inspire confidence at the outcome of the process”.
The governing council members comprised of people of high profile, learned, and integrity under the leadership of The pious mal. Adamu Chiroma has done their job with intent and purpose of taking the university to a greater height.
Moreover; the entire leadership of AREWA YOUTH VANGUARD OF NIGERIA, its Millions members as development partners shall continue to be advocates of unity, peace and progress within and outside Ahmadu Bello University, Zaria and the nation call on ZEMDA to always stay within the confine of their established duties and tender an apology to the vice Chancellor elect and the entire university community for their ill guided submissions.
Finally; it is also crystal clear that the allegations raised were baseless and cannot stand the taste of time. While the national president, Comr. Kabir Uthman emphasised with a loud and clear voice that the selection of the new VC was validly conducted in compliance with all statutes, rules and regulation of the university” and advise the Zazzau Group to always reflect before making their submissions public.
The Press statement is signed by its National president, Comrade Muhammad Kabir Uthman and its Secretary General Comrade Sani Ishaq and made it available to news men today 14 March ,2020 in Kaduna.
