The Founder and President of Al-Ansar Foundation, Dr. Mohammed Kyari Dikwa, has congratulated Prof. Salisu Shehu, for emerging as the pioneer Vice Chancellor, VC, of Al-Istiqamah University.

Prof. Shehu, a prolific academic and accomplished researcher at the Bayero University, Kano (BUK), was recently appointed as VC of the Kano State-based new private institution.

Al-Istiqamah University is among the 20 new universities approved by the Federal Executive Council (FEC), yesterday.

Kyari Dikwa, in a statement issued by Dr. Abubakar Mohammed Sani, his Senior Special Assistant on Media, said the emergence of Prof. Shehu as Al-Istiqamah varsity VC is a welcome development.

While describing the BUK don as a man of stellar character, noble faith and ennobling leadership qualities; he likened Prof. Shehu’s appointment as putting a square peg in a square hole.

Dr. Dikwa prayed for him to succeed in his new assignment, saying: “May Allah (SWT) bless, guide and protect him.”

Prof. Salisu Shehu is a member of the Al-Ansar University Projects Planing and Implementation Committee (PPIC), as well as the Chairman, Recruitment and Enrollment Committee of the Al-Ansar Centre for Comprehensive Education (ACCE), in Abuja.

He has been performing credibly well in these positions ever since he took up the appointments.
