The new Vice Chancellor (VC) of Adamawa State university (ADSU), Dr Moses Zaruwa, has said that he was given a mandate from the Ministry of Higher Education to restore back the credibility and excellence of university
During his first management meeting in the institution, the VC told them that his cardinal vision was to claim back the lost glory of ADSU.
He also pledged to reconcile all warring factions in the school system as he had already constituted a reconciliation committee to handle this.
“I am here to make sure peace is restored, I am not here to witch-hunt anybody as a matter of fact I am not here to settle scores with my colleagues,” the VC said.
Dr Zaruwa, who is serving as the VC in acting capacity, lamented that the school’s records in terms of academics performance was no longer what it used to be.
According to him, ADSU some years back was among the best universities in the country but because of insurgents activities the school has not been in session for a complete academic calendar. This, he added, contributed to its myriads of internal problems that led to even strikes.
The acting VC, who is a pharmacologist, reiterated that his tenure will be characterised with creation of new Faculties that will address the issues of unemployment in the state, fast-track the building of Faculties of Medicine and Law, which have been in the pipeline of the school’s academic plan.
He disclosed that a good arrangement has been put in place with the Chinese Embassy to introduce Chinese Language as a course that will further help in learning much about Chinese herbal medicine to harness the rich potential the state has in alternative medicine.
