Days after the National Assembly adopt a motion billed by member representing Dutsin-ma/Kurfi Federal Constituency; Danlami Mohammed Kurfi, on the proposed change of name of the Federal University Dutsin-ma (FUDMA) to Muhammadu Dikko University Dutsin-ma has generated incalculable number of reactions from readers, people of Dutsin-ma community and students from the institution.
Katsinapost.com gathered that students of the institution took to social media to express their dissatisfaction on how the lawmaker neglected his primary duty to pursue for developmental projects rather than presenting an Intangible bill on behalf of the Constituency, he represents.
Some of these reactions follows:
“Message to Hon. Danlami Kurfi.
Did anyone from Dutsin-ma or Kurfi sent you to billed for the change of name of Federal University Dutsin-ma, Katsina State to ‘Muhammadu Dikko University’?
If yes! On whose consent please?
If no! Does that mean change of name of institution is more important to Dutsin-ma community than water projects, electrification of our remote villages or provision of health facilities to our health centers and hospitals?
Pls, this is not and should not be part of our bargain”
“No may be the University Will Award him with Doctoring Degree for him to be calling Dr Danlami Kurfi”.
“We don’t know why some of our leaders are doing many thing for their own wish they doesn’t consider the problem of their people”.
“This is one of the problems of Nigerian Universities, renaming.”
“Wlh wasu Yan majalisu basu San aikin su ba kwata-kwata”.
– Aminu Sani Sharah
“I was watching NTA when the Honorable talks about it. I was shocked all over.”
“Very ridiculous and unreasonable”.
– Aminu Ango
“Danlami should have make consultation before presenting this bill gaskiya”.
– Shehu Mustapa
“To immortalize a citizen by renaming an Institution of learning after his name doesn’t require the consent of the requisite University community neither must the host community attain a utopian state of infrastructure before same is done. All it requires is an act. The act of renaming is a form of reward or incentive for hard work in and of itself”.
It being recalled that the lawmaker representing Kurfi/Dutsin-ma constituency presented the bill before national assembly requesting for a change of Federal University Dutsin-ma to Muhammadu Dikko University last week.
