The Governing Council of University of Abuja has set up an ad hoc committee to look into the employment and promotions of staff in the University between 2011 – 2021.
PLATFORM TIMES gathered that the Chairman of the Governing Council of the University, Professor Ahmed Modibbo Mohammed while inaugurating the committee said the Committee was set up following concerns expressed by the council members on the deposition of staff, proper staff mix, actual staff strength and requirements of the various segments of the University at its 91st Regular Meeting.
According to Mohammed, the ad hoc committee will “look at employments and or promotions made by this University from 2011- 2021, a period of 10 years; cite the original certificates of all claims made by staff in their files, establish whether or not the positions staff were appointed and or promoted to during the period met laid-down requirements and were well deserved; identify where staff were over placed or underplaced and make appropriate recommendations for adjustments, where necessary.
“Provide Council with vital data on the number of academic staff in the employ of the University, department by department; staff mix to see whether or not the university is conforming to the requirements of the National Universities Commission (NUC); the number of non-academic staff vis-a-vis senior and junior staff; and the total number of security personnel.”
The Committee was given a month in which to conclude its assignment and make its report available to the next Council meeting for consideration.
In his address, the vice-chancellor, Professor Abdul-Rasheed Na’Allah appealed to the committee members to carry out their assignment with the fear of God, and ensure that they did the right thing without minding whose ox was gored.
“We have to break away from our troubled past by doing the right thing, because it is only by doing the right that we can show the world that we are not only a serious University, but prepared to provide credible leadership in the university system.
The Chairman of the ad hoc committee, Alhaji Buba Gamawa, noted that even though their assignment was sensitive, they would be above board in carrying it out.
Other members of the committee are Professor Saint Gbilekaa, representative of the Senate; Dr Kasim Umar, representative of the congregation; Dr Patrick Uju, representative of the congregation; and Malam Yahya Mohammed, Registrar and Secretary to Council.
