Share with friends

Ahmadu Bello University is not only a pillar of tertiary education in Nigeria but also represents the aspirations of people and actualization of their dreams, the Registrar of Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB), Professor Ishaq Olarewaju Oloyede, has said.

The JAMB registrar, who made the remark recently when he called on the Vice-Chancellor of Ahmadu Bello University, Professor Ibrahim Garba, expressed satisfaction with commitment of ABU management by remaining alive to its responsibility as a leading tertiary institution in Nigeria.

Professor Oloyede, who was in Zaria for JAMB retreat at the famous Kongo Conference Hotels (now rebranded ABU Hotels), also said he was elated at seeing the tremendous transformation of the University as a whole. He maintained that the University was not in any way shying away from its statutory responsibilities to the nation, as it continued to play the all important role in mentoring upcoming universities.

“It is not all about building new structures, but maintaining our monuments, especially in these times that our monuments are being defaced,” he said. Professor Oloyede then assured the University management of his support in deepening the relationship between ABU and JAMB in different strategic areas.

Deputy Vice-Chancellor, Administration, Professor Kabir Bala, who received the JAMB registrar along with Dean, School of Postgraduate Studies, Professor S Z Abubakar, on behalf of the Vice Chancellor, described the University as a cosmopolitan institution given its nationwide spread of staff and student profiles.

Professor Bala urged for JAMB’s support to enable ABU to live up to the vision set by its founding father to accommodate people regardless of religion, ethnicity or tribal differences. Also speaking, the Dean, School of Postgraduate Studies, Professor S Z Abubakar, thanked the JAMB boss for patronising the ABU Hotels, saying the University was aware of its burden of mentoring upcoming universities and was working tirelessly to upgrade and even expand its facilities.

“You see, with the largest carrying capacity of undergraduates in the country, and the growing number of post graduate programmes we have no choice but to live up to our responsibilities” he said.
