The Governing Council of the Federal University, Gashua (FUG), has denied the social media report of the removal of the institution’s Vice Chancellor which the council described as baseless, unfounded, mischievous and malicious.
This is coming after a report that went viral on social media over the weekend that the institution;s Governing Council has removed the VC, Prof. Andrew Haruna.
A statement by the University’s Acting Registrar/Secretary to the Council, Aliyu Bulkachuwa stated that the information contained in the document is aimed to breed disharmony between members of the university’s management.
According to him, the university’s Governing Council has never met at any date to discuss any matter as contained in the fake release, and that there is no petition or any report that may require such severe punishment which was presented to the Council at any time.
“In fact, the Governing Council is satisfied with the performance of the VC and his management as he has diligently been performing his official duties.
“Therfore, Council distances itself from the content of the circulation and requests the general public to disregard the said document,” the statement stated.
The Governing Council also called on the university community to disregard the fake news and go about their duties without any sense of distraction caused by the fake document.
