The management of the Federal University Dutsin-ma (FUDMA) has yesterday nominated Professor Aminu Ɗalhat Kankia as its new Acting Vice Chancellor for the next 6 months.
We could recalled that, the University has been without a substantive VC for over two and a half years following the suspension of the embattled Prof. Haruna Kaita by the Council of the University under Dr. Maraliya Zayyan.
It was Professor Armaya’u Hamisu Bichi who steered the affairs of the University as an Acting Vice Chancellor for a period of two years and a half.
And by the decree of National University Commission, Prof. Bichi can no longer act on Acting capacity; hence the reason for nomination of the new administrator.
Before his nomination, Professor Aminu Ɗalhat Kankia was the Director for School of General and Preliminary Studies – SOGAPS as well as Head of Department of Science Education.
Kankia is a Professor of Mathematics Education.
