Najatu Muhammad, an ardent supporter of President Muhammadu Buhari, has rejected her appointment as the chairperson of the governing council of the Federal University, Dutse (FUD).
The Minister of Education, Adamu Adamu, had recently announced her appointment and that of 12 others while reconstituting the governing councils of 12 federal universities.
Muhammad, who rejected the appointment through an advert published by a National Newspaper on Monday, stressed that she was not consulted.
She said that she would not accept the appointment due to some personal reasons, adding that since her appointment was made through the newspaper media, she was constrained to make the rejection via the same medium.
She, however, pledged her continue support for Buhari and his administration.
The advert reads:
“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 Muhammadu 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.”
