Modibbo Adama University of Technology, Yola, Adamawa state, has re-written history by appointing Hajiya Halima Mohammed as its first female registrar, breaking a long existing jinx in the male dominated system.
Sa’ad Aliyu, the acting information officer of the university, in a statement obtained by the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), announced this development in the state's capital on Wednesday, September 5.
He said Mohammad's appointment was ratified by the institution’s governing council at its 91st regular meeting, adding that Mohammed was formerly the university's deputy registrar for information and publicity.
Hajiya Halima Mohammed has since Wednesday, September 5, taken the mantle of responsibility.
Meanwhile, NAIJ.com previously reported that the ongoing second semester examinations for the 2017/2018 academic session at Ladoke Akintola University of Technology (LAUTECH), Ogbomoso, had been disrupted by the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU).
The development was confirmed by the secretary of the union, Toyin Abegunrin, who said that lecturers had embarked on a two-week warning strike to express their displeasure over non-payment of salaries and decayed infrastructure of the institution.
