Dr. Ibrahim Hassan Dankwambo CON, former governor of Gombe State, has been commended on his selection and installation as the third Chancellor of the Bells University of Technology, Ota, Ogun State, Nigeria.

Dr. Dankwambo, who was also a past Accountant-General of the Federation, was hailed for his leadership qualities, sense of duty and personal integrity he would bring to the new position.

This was contained in a congratulatory message issued by a prominent indigene of Gombe State, Muhammad Jibrin Barde.

In his personal message, Barde said, “I congratulate His Excellency, Dr. Ibrahim Hassan Dankwambo, CON, FCA, FCIB, FNES, FNIB, (Talban Gombe) on his selection and installation as the third Chancellor of the Bells University of Technology, Ota, Nigeria.

“In his Excellency, Dr. IH Dankwambo, Talban Gombe, one of our nation’s leading and first private university of technology has found one of our nation’s finest public servants. I’m confident that Talban Gombe will bring to this new role the same sense of duty and personal integrity that I and ALL the good people of Gombe state in particular and Nigeria in general valued during his distinguished career in government”, Barde added.

According to the statement, “It is worthy to note that the Talban’s passion and commitment to education ensured the repositioning of education in Gombe State across all levels and specifically the establishment of Gombe state University of Technology, Kumo.

“In the time when great tasks of reforms of our high education are ahead of us, the position of the Chancellor of the Bells University of Technology, as the first private university of technology and one of the leading and most important private universities in our country, is a challenge and a huge responsibility.

“As he did during his times as the AGF, Governor of Gombe state and his service to Igbinedion University, Okada as a professorial chair, he will again help lead the institution devoted to our nation’s most precious resource – our young men and women,” Barde added.

“I wish His Excellency, Talban Gombe success in this mandate and the very best as he begins this new chapter at this great institution founded by the great son of Africa, Chief Olusegun Obasanjo, GCFR. I have no doubt that Dr. IH Dankwambo will leave an indelible mark in the realisation of the objectives of the Bells University of Technology, and I wish his Excellency success in your mandate”, the statement noted.

While commending the former governor on his selection, Barde expressed his support towards the success of his tenure as the Chancellor. “You can always count on my support in creating better education conditions for our young people, who are the future of our entire society”, he added.

A first-class graduate of the University of Ibadan (UI) took to Facebook to share his grass-to-grace story, following his graduation from the school.

The student named Mayowa Joshua Amusan said he had parallel F9 in the first NECO examination he sat for and proceeded to write WAEC three other times before he finally succeeded and gained admission to study Agricultural Technology in the polytechnic, Ibadan.

Amusan went on to reveal that though he graduated with distinction from the polytechnic, he was reluctant to purchase the post-UTME form for UI to further his education because he was scared he wouldn’t pass the exams.

Yobe Government Slashes Civil Servants’ Salaries By 10% To Repair Schools Boko Haram Destroyed

Yobe State government has considered slashing the salaries of its civil servants by 10 percent to repair schools wrecked by Boko Haram terrorists in the state.

Governor Mai Mala Buni-led government disclosed this in a statement by the state Commissioner for Home Affairs, Information and Culture, Muhammad Lamin.

Lamin who spoke at a press briefing on Monday in Damaturu, the state capital, said insurgency had impacted negatively on the educational sector in the state.

He explained that the decision to take a cut from salaries of the government workers was to ginger collective action to revive the sector ravaged by a decade-long insurgency.

“Apart from reaching out to people outside government, we feel that civil servants in the state should also give their modest contribution to the programme by contributing 10 per cent of their November basic salary. By this briefing, therefore, civil servants are informed that the deduction will be for only the month of November 2021,” Mr Buni had pointed out.

“In this regard, the government is appealing to civil servants in the state to heartily support the government in her bid to rescue our state from the catastrophe of educational decay,” the statement added.
