The Kaduna State Government has appointed Prof. Shehu Dalhatu and Prof. Emmanuel Chom as sole administrators of Nuhu Bamalli Polytechnic, Zaria, and Kaduna State College of Education, Gidan Waya, respectively.
This is contained in a statement signed by Samuel Aruwan, the Special Assistant to the Governor on Media and Publicity, on Tuesday.
Mr. Aruwan said the appointments, which take immediate effect, are for a period of six months.
He said the appointments were in line with the state government’s commitment to strengthen the education sector.
He said the appointees replaced Prof. Dalhatu Yahaya, who until the announcement, was the rector of Nuhu Bamalli Polytechnic, Zaria, and Hope Gajere, who headed the Kaduna State College of Education.
“Gov. Nasir El-Rufai, on behalf of the people and Government of Kaduna State, thanked the former rector and the provost for the services rendered to the state in their respective capacities”.
Mr. Aruwan said that the state executive council recently approved the White Papers on the reports of the visitation panels to its tertiary institutions, where recommendations to strengthen the institutions were made.
“The new administrators are expected to oversee the implementation of measures to revamp the institutions within their six month tenure.’’
