The Chief of Army Staff, Lt.-Gen. Tukur Buratai has made it know that discipline will be strictly enforced in the newly established Nigerian Army University, Biu (NAUB).
He said vices such as cultism, activism, protest, industrial actions will not be allowed by the university from both students and members of staff.
Buratai revealed this on Monday at the Army Headquarters in Abuja while presenting a letter of appointment to the Vice Chancellor of the university, Prof. David Malgwi.
“As you are all aware that the university is a military establishment though with a conventional setting, discipline would thus be enforced as vices such as cultism, activism, protest or strike and any untoward acts or activities from both the students and staff would be viewed seruiously,” Buratai stated.
He added that the main aim of the university was to serve as solution centre for technological and operation problems of the Niherian army, military and the nation at large.
He also said that the importance of this citadel of learning in this age of automation and technological advancement can therefore not be over-emphasised.
Responding, the Vice Chancellor of the university promised to discharge his duties to the best of his ability “in accordance to the set goals and norms of the Nigerian army with guidance of the National Universities Commission (NUC).”
Prof. Malagwi, who has been the Acting VC of the institution since 2018 said, “with utmost faith, I hereby accept the confirmation of this appointment as the Vice Chancellor of the Nigerian Army University, Bui.”
