Governor Muhammdu Inuwa Yahaya of Gombe state has approved the extension of tenure of the management of the  Gombe State University of Science and Technology (GSUST), Kumo, for six months with effect from 1st July, 2023.

A statement by the director-general of Press Affairs, Ismaila Uba Misilli, Saturday said the governor’s approval was conveyed by the Secretary to the State Government, Professor Ibrahim Abubakar Njodi.

He said the decision followed the expiration of their tenure at the end of this June and the need to facilitate a smooth takeover of the institution by the Lincoln University College, Malaysia. 

Misilli recalled that Gombe state government signed a Public Private Partnership (PPP) agreement with the Lincoln University College of Malaysia to prop up academic activities at the Gombe State University of Science and Technology, Kumo, and activate the institution to a centre of academic excellence.  

He said the MoU is the treaty that will bring to life the established and hitherto abandoned university, to make it a world-class institution that would favourably compete in the comity of international universities.
