Prof. Abubakar Rasheed, the re-appointed Executive Secretary, National Universities Commission (NUC) has assured staff and management of the commission (NUC) and the entire Nigerian Universities System (NUS) of good leadership as he assumed duty.

Rasheed disclosed this in Abuja on Monday after staff and management of the commission, agog with joy,cheered him to the office.

It would be recalled that President Muhammadu Buhari recently approved the reappointment of NUC among other heads of agencies to pilot the affairs of the commission for the next five years.

Rasheed applauded the NUS for its continued support and cooperation describing the successful leadership of the system as a product of collective responsibility .

“The larger university community that has been growing phenomenally in the last few years with more federal universities coming on board, more state universities are being established and the number of private universities is also increasing almost every year and in such a way that we almost have 50/50 ratio of all the institutions.

“No one person can claim credit alone for major breakthrough or achievement especially when we talk about leadership of the Nigerian university system ,it is a collective responsibility.

“The commission itself cannot succeed without the support of the NUS. Our success will therefore be driven from meaningful interaction the commission holds with the entire university systems.

“ We therefore promised to continue to do our best to move the commission higher and as well do our best to continue to improve on the things we do that give us success,” he said.

The executive secretary while expressing satisfaction over the warm welcome he received, pleaded with staff and management to continue to support him for the next five years.

Reacting, the Deputy Executive Secretary(Academics) of the NUC, Dr Rahman Yusuf, described the re-appointed Executive Secretary as an administrative Guru, who has a lot more to offer the Nigerian University system.

“Of course the major beneficiary of this is the revitilisation agenda which the ES Adamu Rasheed started ,a lot of people were heart broken when you left ,we all are glad that you are back to continue,” he said.

Also, the Deputy ES Christopher Maiyaki, said the receptional nature of the commission of Prof. Adamu Rasheed portrays continuity.

Maiyaki pledged an unflinching support of staff while looking forward to a glorious day in the university systems of the country.

The Executive Secretary of the National Universities Commission was received on red carpet with presentation of gifts on his return from various departments of the commission as well as domestic workers of the NUC.

Rasheed whose re-appointment took effect Aug.1, is to spend another five years at the Commission on a second tenure.
