Prof. Gusau, noted that, the recorded success achieved on both teaching and learning under his administration may not be unconnected with the restoration of staff training and development which was earlier suspended before his assumption as substantive Vice Chancellor.

In addition to same light, the National Universities Commission (NUC) had granted full accreditation to the remaining 15 academic programmes bearing interim accreditation, this is added with the scholarship of 190 staff of the University who benefited from TEFUND interventions amongst many more achievements.

“I would like to state here that, achievements could not have been recorded anywhere without some challenges as what we are facing in the institution is not unique to us alone but other federal institutions in Nigeria and Northwest in particular.

“These challenges are of funding and insecurity bedeviled us, the needs of our institutions are enormous and the funding from the federal government is always inadequate, therefore, the need for all well-to-do individuals to invest heavily on education thereby complementing the efforts of the federal government”, Prof. Gusau has advocated.
