The Governing Council of the University of Abuja (UniAbuja) has inaugurated a committee aimed at repositioning the varsity. The Pro-Chancellor and Chairman of the council, Sani Maikudi while inaugurating the committee, said the reposition will allow the institution to deliver on its mandate in line with global practices. Maikudi said the council had discovered that the university had some structural operational problems, which had stood in the way of its rapid development. He noted that the university was envisaged to be a beacon in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) promoting scholarship, national unity and public service programmes appropriate to a world-class university.
According to him, the university appeared to have veered off course over the years which now required that its strategic plan be re-evaluated to bring it not only in tandem with its mandate but in line with world best practices. “It has been over 30 years since the inception of the university and it can be said without any contradiction that not much has been achieved towards realising the objectives for which the university was set up,” he said. The 9-man committee has a one-time Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Saburi Adesanya, as the chairman and is expected to evaluate the strategic plan of the university and its relevance to the mandate establishing it, evaluate its master plan and the relevance of the current physical/structural arrangement in achieving a 21st century University.
Speaking during the inauguration, the Vice-Chancellor of the university, Prof. Michael Adikwu expressed optimism in the ability of the committee, which members were associated with or involved in the university system to produce a document that would help reinvigorate the institution.
Commenting on behalf of the members, Prof. Adesanya, commended the governing council for reposing confidence in the members and assured the council of their total commitment to discharging the trust reposed in them for the overall growth of the university.
