Speaking after he took over, Prof. Shehu said he was prepared for his new assignment by the process that saw him emerged as the vice-chancellor, describing the process “as very tedious and reflected integrity, innovation and excellence.”
He thanked the members of the governing council of the University, led by Emeritus Professor Munzali Jibril, for making it possible for the best candidate to emerge as vice-chancellor and “all the developments witnessed in the institution, especially in the last five years.”
He charged workers to discharge their functions with sincerity, bearing in their mind mind the need to develop the University to make it compete with older ones in Nigeria.
In his speech, former vice-chancellor Liman said he was leaving behind a fast developing University, adding he felt privileged to have headed the institution.
He called on members of the governing council, senate, management team and staff to “cooperate with Abdur-Rahman as you have all cooperated with me to make FULafia greater.”
