The governing council of the Ahmadu Bello University (ABU), Zaria, has approved the appointment of Rabiu Samaila as the substantive registrar of the institution and Mohammed-Bello Gurin as the new bursar.

The spokesman of the university, Auwal Umar, disclosed in a statement released on Friday.

The tenure of the former registrar, Abdullahi Kundila, expired on June 2.

The statement said that the appointments of the two principal officers were approved by the Joint Council and Senate Selection Board at its meeting held on September 17.

“Both appointments take effect from when they assume duties. Each of them is to serve for a one-term period of five years.

“The council’s approval of the appointments was in the exercise of the powers conferred on it by Section 6 (1) of the Universities (Miscellaneous Provisions) (Amendment) Act 1993, as amended,” the statement said.

Before his appointment, Mr Umar was the Deputy Registrar, Human Resources Development Department.

The statement said that the new registrar served as the acting registrar and secretary to the council of the university on two occasions – between December 2014 and September 2015 and between February and June 2016.

Similarly, the statement said that Mr Gurin, the newly appointed bursar, was the bursar of the Federal University, Gashua. He was on secondment from ABU.

The statement said Mr Gurin started working as an Assistant Chief Clerical Officer (Accounts) in ABU on June 6, 1988, and rose through the ranks to become Deputy Bursar.
