Nasarawa varsity matriculates 5,292 students as SSANU get new leaders

The Nasarawa State University, Keffi, has offered admission to 5,292 students for the 2016/2017 academic session.
Addressing the matricu­lating students, the Vice Chancellor of the University, Prof. Muhammad Akaro Mainoma said that out of the 40,000 candidates that applied for admission only 5,292 were lucky to be ad­mitted.
He, however, advised the new students to note that university system is differ­ent from secondary school, hence, the need to be more serious in academic activi­ties and not get carried away by the non-regimented life in the institution.
The VC said the univer­sity would never accept any form of bad behaviours from any students such as cult­ism, criminal act, corrup­tion, cheating and conflicts, among others.
Recall that Nasarawa State University has seven faculties with 36 departments, offer­ing 54 degree programmes.
Meanwhile, the Univer­sity’s chapter of the Se­nior Staff Association of Nigerian Universities (SSANU) has elected new leaders who will pilot the affairs of the as­sociation for four years.
A statement by the association, said the election which was con­ducted on the 21st Feb­ruary, 2017, led to the emergence of the new executives.
The chairman of the association, Comr. Zubairu Adamu assured that his leadership would not witch-hunt anybody but would bring about the desired develop­ment.
Adamu, who was re-elected for the second time expressed gratitude to God for given him another opportunity to serve the association un­der a new tenure.
Others members elected include Comr. Bados Jonathan Audi as Vice Chairman, Sule John Shilo; Secretary, Auwalu Suleiman; As­sistant Secretary, Yakubu Simon; Treasurer, Alaku Emmanuel Attah; Fi­nancial Secretary, Ubam Aminat Egba; Public Relation Officer, among others.
