By Bello Akidi:
Professor Abubakar Rasheed, the Executive Secretary of the National Universities Commission (NUC), has officially announced his resignation. He made this announcement on Thursday in Abuja, shortly after granting an operational license for the establishment of a third university owned by Kogi State.
Without providing specific details, he mentioned that he would be returning to the classroom, which is his original professional domain. During the same event, the Kogi State Government obtained the NUC’s license to establish the third state-owned university, named Kogi State University in Kabba.
Governor Bello stated that his visit to NUC was prompted by the recent passage of a bill by the Kogi State House of Assembly, which authorized the establishment of a third state-owned university in Kabba/Bunu Local Government Area.
