UNIABUJA VC Elections; Adikwu Emerges

Professor Michael Umale Adikwu of the University of Nigeria, Nsukka has been elected by the governing council of the University of Abuja as the new vice chancellor, replacing Professor James Adelabu.

He took over the mantle of leadership of the institution on Tuesday and promised to reconcile the disputes amongst staff unions of the university, which  has brought the institution to an undesirable state in the last few years. He also pledged to raise the academic standard of the school to an enviable position in Nigeria and Africa at large.

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.”
