The Governing Council of the Federal University of Kashere, Gombe State, has confirmed Umar Faruk Bayu as the acting Registrar for a period of six months.
Bayu’s appointment, according to a circular signed by the university’s spokesman, Malami Suleyman Ahmed, takes effect from August 15, 2022, pending the time a substantive Registrar would be appointed.
The appointee took charge of affairs following the tenure end of the erstwhile Registrar, Alhaji Kabiru Garba Aminu who served in the office for six years
The appointment letter was signed by the outgoing Registrar, on behalf of the University Governing Council
Professor Mustapha A. Muhammad, the Deputy Vice Chancellor of the institution, during a brief handing over ceremony urged Bayu to operate all-inclusive administration as he discharges his duty diligently.
In the same vein, Muhammad extolled the outgoing register referencing his diligence and commitment to work.
However, the outgoing registrar felicitated with Bayu, advising him to be tolerant and fair in discharging his duties. This, he said, would justify the confidence reposed on him.
Aminu appreciated the Vice Chancellor, Professor Umaru A. Pate and other members of the university community for their cooperation and support throughout his tenure and assured to remain connected with the institution wherever he found himself.
Responding, the Ag. Registrar, Mal Umar Faruk Bayu, expressed gratitude to the university’s Governing Council and the Vice Chancellor for finding him worthy of the appointment and promised to justify the trust reposed in him.
