Najatu Muhammed, an activist and supporter of President Muhammadu Buhari, has rejected her appointment as chairperson of the Governing Council of the Federal University, Dutse, Jigawa State.
She conveyed her decision in a letter to the Minister of Education, Adamu Adamu. She also took an advertorial in a newspaper to announce her decision.
The Minister of Education, Adamu Adamu, had recently announced her appointment and that of 12 others while reconstituting the governing councils of 12 federal universities.
In the letter entitled, “Reconstitution of the Governing Councils of 12 Federal Universities”, Mrs. Muhammed, who is also a politician from Kano State, said she was not consulted before the announcement was made in the media. Below is Ms. Muhammed’s letter:
“I, Najatu Muhammad, wish to thank you so much for considering me worthy of being appointed the chairperson of Dutse Federal University.
It’s however, unfortunate that I was not consulted before the announcement in the media.
“I also regret that I have to use the same medium to announce that I can’t accept the appointment for some personal reasons.
“I will however remain an ardent supporter of President Muhammadu Buhari in his effort in charting a new course for this country. A course that we pray will put this country back on the path of progress.
“I will also continue to support the presidents fight against corruption and other ills of this country. My unflinching support for the President will remain for Allah’s sake and country.
“I pray that Allah will continue to guide and protect our President.
“Long Live the Federal Republic of Nigeria.”
