Najatu Muhammed, an activist and supporter of President Muhammadu Buhari, has rejected her appointment as chairperson of the Governing Council of the Federal University, Dutse, Jigawa State.

She conveyed her decision in a letter to the Minister of Education, Adamu Adamu. She also took an advertorial in a newspaper to announce her decision.

The Minister of Education, Adamu Adamu, had recently announced her appointment and that of 12 others while reconstituting the governing councils of 12 federal universities.

In the letter entitled, “Reconstitution of the Governing Councils of 12 Federal Universities”, Mrs. Muhammed, who is also a politician from Kano State, said she was not consulted before the announcement was made in the media.

The activist also said since her appointment was made in the media, she decided to use the same media to reject it.

She however pledged her continuous support for the president and his administration.

Below is Ms. Muhammed’s letter:

“I, Najatu Muhammad, wish to thank you so much for considering me worthy of being appointed the chairperson of Dutse Federal University.

It’s however, unfortunate that I was not consulted before the announcement in the media.

“I also regret that I have to use the same medium to announce that I can’t accept the appointment for some personal reasons.

“I will however remain an ardent supporter of President Muhammadu Buhari in his effort in charting a new course for this country. A course that we pray will put this country back on the path of progress.

“I will also continue to support the presidents fight against corruption and other ills of this country. My unflinching support for the President will remain for Allah’s sake and country.

“I pray that Allah will continue to guide and protect our President.

“Long Live the Federal Republic of Nigeria.”

    The decent and respectful thing to do is actually to consult a prospective appointee before announcing it. It’s so undignified to think that everyone is looking for a government job and would therefore jump at every offer.

    • favourtalk

      No, she got it all wrong. Everything now is to help Nigeria and if she is not interested, so be it

      • tundemash

        No you got it wrong. Decency demand that she’s consulted about a task that you claim Nigeria needs help on.

        • Otile

          Abubakar tundemash, what happened? Have finally left Islam? You are making a lot of sense lately. Keep it up, buddy.

          • tundemash

            Mor0n, i knew it ! I know u can’t be completely cured of religious and ethnic sentiment.

          • Otile

            Did you not tell us that Islam is a way of life? If you take away Islam what else do you have?

          • tundemash

            Ask your Alhaji Boko Haram, the new Chairman of PDPigs. Very soon, he’s drafting you to Sambisa to shore up the depleting fortune of Boko Haram as your pay-per-post job PDP gave u ere isn’t yielding the desired effect.

    • Otile

      What has Imam got to do with decency? The relationship between Imam and decency is the same relationship with ungulu and barber.

  • favourtalk

    I believe she could have done it honorably, this message and public address way will send more signal to the people that she doesn’t care about life and service to the people. Kudos PMB for trusting in some people

    • tundemash

      Why was she not honorably consulted too ?

      • Otile

        That’s the right question, bro.

        • tundemash

          Otile Shekau, obviously u used your drugs today. So you can make a sentence without ethnic and religious colouration ? wow! keep using those drugs regularly please.

          • Otile

            What I take is fervent prayers to Almighty and Merciful God, that He continues to bless me and true friends, protect us from evil, and kill off my enemies.

          • tundemash

            With Alhaji Boko Haram finally taking over your party, your days on earth are numbered as you would be drafted to Sambisa soon to fight alongside PDPigs military wing, Boko Haram.

    • Otile

      You mean, kudos to Duncee to be Duncee by doing things in his own Duncee way. Najeriya we hail thee.

  • ijelejames

    Trouble over nothing.

  • Analyst

    She thought the position is too small for her. She expected more than this from Buhari. Hence the rejection.

    • tundemash

      What a pathetic fellow you are ! Why you all ethnic bigots wail over Buhari not pointing your rogue masters into positions , that is a northerner actually rejecting one.

  • Felix Udoh

    The only one yet who is not interested in ‘Chopping’.

  • wode

    If she was truly not consulted before the announcement, then she is right.

    • Julius

      Absolutely,I agree. Thats how they normally do things in Nigeria and Im glad she rejected the appointment and made it known. Good for her, it shows that she has principle .


    consultation in this time and era does not cost or consumes anybodys time , most of the potential appointees frequent abuja , the minister corncerned can as well invite them for a brief chat or at worst communicate ur intention through electronic means; email etc once the potential appointee express willingness to work with the Government then you go ahead and make your appointment public. we are so used to anomaly that we usually see normal as abnormal. if the person corncerned has personal bussiness or other matters that he is handling and think that will prevent him from functioning effectively or ill heallth and family matters NKO, . I Must comment the lioness heart of Najaatu mohd for rejecting such appointment that will fetch her power and fortune in this time and era when people are get crashing and rushing for material possiton to satisfy their unquenching thirst for materialism rightly or wrongly. Things should be done to reflect civilized way of affair. but the buhari apologist will alwayz bark and bite anybody that appears to slight their semidevine master. where is danfulani undersuspension.

    • Otile

      To cut the long story short, this lady has shown Duncee semi-illiteracy is a disease.

  • joe

    Ok, This is a first! While some Nigerian would kiĺl to get into a public office even as a dog-catcher,this woman rejected such a pregistious appointment based on principles. I am truly impressed. This is a show of dignity, self-esteem and depth. In spite of the Wikes of our world that would commit genocide and subvert our judicial institution to be a governor, this woman teaches us that to be treated with respect is more valuable to her than a public appointment. Respect ma’am. Well done.

  • Otile

    Can this teach Duncee that stupidity does not pay?
