Allahu-Akbar! Allahu-Akbar!! Allahu-Akbar!!! Alhamdulillah Rabbil A’alamein!
My dear family members,
Today, the 6th day of April 2022, which is equivalent to 5th Ramadan, 1443 by . the special grace of Allah SWT and our persistent push and that of many other stakeholders, especially the PIC and PMC of AUM and that of Al – Ansar Foundation, after long waiting, today, the Federal Executive Council, presided over by the President and Commander-in-Chief of the Federal Republic, President Muhammadu Buhari, GCFR has approved the memo submitted by the Federal Ministry of Education on behalf of the NUC for the establishment of Al – Ansar University, Maiduguri, together with 11 others.
This laborious but satisfying pursuit of excellence and good cause for humanity has come to the end of its 1st phase and about to step into the beginning of its 2nd phase journey.
Now that approval has been granted, the most difficult task of employing qualified and merited hands to pilot the affairs of the University and the admission of equally qualified students to start pursuing their dream courses in a free and well equipped environment, requires all hands on deck to not only meet but exceed the expectations of those who sacrificed their comfort, time and resources to see to the establishment of the University.
I am extremely elated by this development and therefore wish to express my heartfelt appreciation to my Brother, His Excellency, Prof Babagana Umara Zulum, mni without whose dogged support and believe in our cause, we wouldn’t have achieved this noble objective. I wish to also thank the Chairman and all members of the Project Implementation Committee, staff of Al – Ansar Foundation; the construction, procurement and consulting teams; my Special Advisers and all other stakeholders that are very many to mention, who took time to ensure that today’s news had become a reality.
May the Almighty Allah continue to guide, bless, nourish, and sustain the university for many centuries to come. May it be a source of pride and inspiration to many millions in the world forever, long after we are all gone. May it be one of the reasons for our greatest expectations from Almighty Allah in the hereafter. Ameen Yarabbil A’alamein.. Jazakumullahu khayran.
