Agwai also queried the rationale why the registrar was made the secretary of the panel which approved the termination of his appointment.

The registrar of the University, Dr.Idris Jibrin while reacting on the allegation leveled against him by one of the employee whose appointment was terminated said he is yet to receive the said letter officially even as at press time, he in addition said he was not accused of any misconduct or wrongdoing by the institution.
” I did not participate on any employment scam, the registrar who is about retiring by February 2017 said Haruna was given time to report to the investigative panel after he resume duty next year.
“I assure you that Ali Haruna Ali must face the panel to clear himself from the allegation of employment scam,” said the registrar.
