Kogi State Governor Alhaji Yahaya Bello has relieved the Vice-Chancellor of the Kogi State University, Anyigba, Prof. Mohammed Abdulkadi of his appointment.
A statement signed by the Secretary to the State Government (SSG), Dr Folasade Ayoade and made available to Journalists in Lokoja on Tuesday, also announced the removal of Prof. Mohammed Atureta as the Rector of the Kogi State Polytechnic, Lokoja.
It would be recalled that Both Abdulkadir and Atureta had earlier in February been placed on indefinite suspension for ignoring the governor’s directive on Single Treasury Account (TSA).
Consequently, the statement further said that the governor also approved the appointment of Prof. Marietu Tenuche as the Acting Vice-Chancellor of the university while Dr Salisu Usman would act as the Rector of the polytechnic respectively.
Tenuche was a former Deputy Vice-Chancellor of the institution while Abdulkadir has barely five months to complete his tenure as vice-chancellor of the university.
The statement said that the appointments took immediate effect while all handing and taking over should also be completed immediately.
