The tenure of the Administrators of the College of Education, Gidan Waya, and the Nuhu Bamalli Polytechnic, Zaria, Kaduna State, has been extended by six months.
In a statement issued by Governor Nasir El-Rufai’s spokesperson, Samuel Aruwan, he said the Governor approved the tenure extension following a recommendation from the Ministry of Education, Science and Technology, which commended the Rector of Nuhu Bamali Polytechnic, Zaria, Professor Shehu Dalhat and the Provost of the College of Education, Gidan Waya, Emmanuel Joseph Chom, for successfully implementing the White Paper report on the visitation panels to the two tertiary institutions.
The statement explained that during the six-month extension of their tenures, the two administrators are expected to complete the engagement of principal officers and the recruitment of additional academic staff to fill identified gaps.
They are also expected to finalise the accreditation of some academic programmes by the relevant agencies, and to produce condition and scheme of service for the two schools. In addition, they have a mandate to complete the general restructuring of the schools.
The statement reads: “it is apparent that the two professors have brought their wealth of administrative and professional experience to bear in the running of their institutions.”
The statement further disclosed that the Rector of Nuhu Bamali Polytechnic, Professor Shehu Dalhat, has worked tirelessly to foster collaborations between the Polytechnic and other organisations like the Nigerian College of Aviation Technology (NCAT), the Nigerian Military School, National Research Institute for Chemical Technology, National Agency for Science and Engineering Infrastructure (NASENI) among others.
“In addition, he has established a Technology Innovation, Incubation and Partnership (TIIP) division to coordinate innovation and research efforts of the Polytechnic.”
The statement also commended Professor Emmanuel Chom, Provost of the Kaduna State College of Education, Gidan Waya, for his achievements thus far: “He has addressed all the abandoned TETFUND projects from 2010-2012 and accessed the backlog of 2013-2016 allocations to fast-track infrastructural development in the school.
He is also strengthening the academic and other programmes of the college to the standard of the National Commission for Colleges of Education (NCCE).”
