FUD DISCLAIM BEING PART OF JIGAWA POLITICS

The attention of the management, Federal University Dutse has been drawn to the activity of one of the Gubernatorial aspirants in the state who used one of the auditoria of the university to host his declaration ceremony today.

 

Management wants to categorically dissociate itself from the event because it is abnormal for a university campus to be used as a venue for official political declaration in Nigeria.

 

The facilitator of the programme had earlier assured the management that the gathering is not a political event, and gave the impression that it is meant to interact with the staff of the Department of Political Science who won the right to host the 2022 National Conference of the Nigerian Political Science Association (NPSA).

 

When the university hosted the North West Zonal Conference of the NPSA last year, the Governor and other prominent politicians attended.

 

Management thought that the aspirant wanted to meet with the staff of the Political Science Department in line with the forthcoming national conference.

 

In the last ten years, FUD has excelled in its core mandate of teaching, research and community service which made the National Universities Commission (NUC) to rank the, institution as the best Federal University in the North-West zone in 2021.

 

Therefore, partisan politics is not part of our mandate.

 

The University enjoys good working relationship with the government of Jigawa state, the traditional institution and all critical stakeholders in the state.

 

Management wants to assure the government and good people of Jigawa state that the university is not partisan and it will never be.

 

The error of judgement is regretted.
