Adikwu Emerges UNIABUJA VC, Pledges to Transform Varsity

The governing council of the University of Abuja (UNIABUJA) on Monday elected Professor Michael Umale Adikwu of the University of Nigeria, Nsukka, as the new vice chancellor, replacing the Professor James Adelabu.

Prof. Michael Adikwu, who took over the mantle of leadership of the institution on Tuesday has promised to reconcile the warring staff unions of the university, which  he said have brought the institution to its knees in the last few years. He also pledged to ensure that the university had the best academic standard in Nigeria.

Adikwu, said,  “The running of a university is a pilgrimage, it is a continuous process. I will ensure there is best academic standard in the school. As I was informed the school is currently on forced vacation, so the first approach is to see how we can bring back both the lecturers and students of the school, so that normal academic activities resume soonest.

“It is imperative to reconcile everybody in this university because without reconciliation we cannot move forward. We should not allow our school to be politicalized  and education should be used to solve socio-economic problems and not to create more problems. I am going to work out modality to ensure stability in University of Abuja community.”
