Ms Najatu Muhammad appointed by the Buhari government after the recent firing of Vice chancellors of 13 of the nation’s universities has publicly rejected the appointment. Najatu Mohammed was appointed the chairperson of Dutse Federal University’s Governing Council.
In a print paper press release, Najatu who said she remains a supporter of Buhari, had to take to the Press to publicly decline the appointment because the Buhari government had likewise gone to the Press to publicly announce the appointment without having first consulted her.
Her rejection read:
Re: Federal Ministry of Education Reconstitution of the Governing Councils of 12 federal Universities
I, Najatu Muhammad wishes 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 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 president’s 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.
