The Vice-Chancellor, University of Abuja, Professor Abdul-Rasheed Na’Allah, yesterday reacted to the protest staged by students of the University on Monday.
He said, “It is unfortunate that the students resolved to stage a protest. The truth is that this university is on its way forward and not backward. It is a university where before now; some people do not register throughout the year, some people graduate even without registration.
“It is a university where a lot of students did not understand that we have a deadline. We as a university are responsible for training people so that when they become leaders tomorrow, they are matured enough to do the right thing.
“We are going to do research and investigate to know exactly where the problem lies. Whatever has happened will never happen again. My only concern is how to move the University to greater heights. I want to set a standard whereby this University will be able to compete with its counterpart globally.”
