He appealed to the Federal Government to provide adequate security to all federal tertiary institutions in the country.

“This appeal becomes necessary because, as it were, it has proven to be impossible for federal tertiary institutions to ay for security and cleaning services from their meagre internally generated revenue,” Gumau said.

Hajiya Rakiya Maleka, the registrar, said that the institution considers the students first in everything it does.

Maleka, represented by Deputy Registrar, Academics, Alhaji Hassan Abubakar, urged the students not to run away from any challenge rather, they should seek help.
