NUC Applauds Newly Appointed Secretary General Of African Universities
The National Universities Commission (NUC) has expressed confidence in the ability of the newly appointed Secretary-General of the 54-year-old Association of African Universities (AAU), Professor Olusola Bandele Oyewole, to excel in office in the overall benefits of the universities in Africa.
Oyewole’s appointment was announced last month by the outgoing President of AAU, Professor Antonio Orlando Quilambo – the Rector of Eduardo Mondiane University, Mozambique – at the virtual extra-ordinary general conference of the association.
The new AAU Secretary-General, who is the immediate past vice chancellor of the Federal University of Agriculture, Abeokuta (FUNAAB), and will resume on October 1, 2021, is replacing an Ivorian scholar, Professor Etienne Ehouan Ehile – who served for nine years.
The AAU headquarters is in Accra, Ghana.
The NUC in a letter signed by its Executive Secretary, Professor Abubakar Adamu Rasheed, stated that with Oyewole’s wealth of experience “as a visionary leader, a seasoned administrator as well as a scholar of international repute,” his tenure would witness the much-needed reforms in higher education in Africa.
