The Vice Chancellor, VC, of the Adamawa State University, ADSU, Mubi, Prof Joshua David Shall, has been removed from office by the state government because of the persistent allegation of maladministration in the institution.
Nigerian Pilot Saturday recalls that since last year, the institution has known no peace as it has been dogged by intractable complaints against his appointment as well as management styles.
According to a letter signed by the Secretary to the State Government, Dr Umar Bindir, it was explained that the removal of the VC was sequel to the recommendations of a visitation panel constituted by Governor Mohammadu Umaru Jibrilla in line with section 15(2) of the Adamawa State University Law 2001.
The letter noted that, the panel investigated allegations of maladministration and other general challenges in the institution.
It added that the removal of the VC was effected following the endorsement of the panel’s recommendation by the state’s ministry of education which plays supervisory role on the university.
“I wish to convey his Excellency’s approval for your removal from office as the Vice Chancellor Adamawa State University, Mubi, with immediate effect,” the letter stated.
The letter further directed the sacked VC to hand over all the university’s property in his possession to the Deputy Vice Chancellor, Dr. Moses Zira Zaruwa.
The university has witnessed a lingering feud within the management following accusation of sleaze levelled by some aggrieved management staff against the Vice Chancellor.
Following the crisis, a group of concerned management staff passed vote- of-no- confidence on the sacked VC, a development that further aggravated the wrangling and forcing the government to intervene when it became apparent that it was affecting the academic activities.
