Governor Mohammed Jibrilla on Wednesday has delegated his Chief of Staff, Abdulrahman Jimeta, to direct the Ministry of Higher Education, Science and Technology after the deployment of Commissioner of Education, Keletapwa George, as the Acting Vice Chancellor of the State University, Mubi.

Mrs. George's arrangement takes after the choice of the state official gathering to disintegrate the board and administration of the college on Wednesday.

The Commissioner of Information and Strategy, Ahmad Sajoh, in a statement said the acting vice chancellor was given a mandate to “immediately restore stability in the institution and put it on the path of progress.”

Lecturers at the college have been on strike since December 14, 2016.

They went on strike under the protection of the Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU, claiming exploitation of union individuals, the reconstitution of the school administration, non-usage of installment of Earned Academic Allowances, advancement of staff which has not been done over the most recent 3 years, installment of benefits, and the subsidizing profile of the foundation.

Mr. Sajoh in his announcement on Wednesday said “a new governing council for the university will be established within the shortest possible time.”

He also said as a natural consequence of the appointment of the education commissioner as acting vice chancellor, the commissioner for water resources, Julius Kadala, has been re-assigned to the ministry of education as commissioner; while, the commissioner for higher education, science and technology, Rufai Abubakar, moves to the ministry of water resources.

“In the interim, the Chief of Staff to His Excellency, Alhaji Abdulrahman Abba Jimeta, who was the pioneer commissioner of Higher Education has been directed to oversee the Ministry,” Mr. Sajoh said.

Mr. Sajoh said all the appointments are with immediate effect. He also asked the board and management of the state university to ensure a smooth and immediate handover to the new leadership.
