According to NAN, Muhammad Ja’afaru, the institution’s deputy vice-chancellor (DVC) administration, announced the sanction on Saturday at the third year anniversary of Abdullahi Tukur, the VC.

Ja’afaru said the move was subject to disciplinary processes. He also said it was the university council that ratified the demotion of the affected officers to lower ranks.

“These were among Tukur’s achievements for not tolerating acts of misconduct in the institution since he assumed duty as VC,” he said.

The DVC administration disclosed that the university would soon implement a policy on sexual harassment upon approval by the institution’s council.

“Once the council approves it, it is going to take care of all forms of sexual harassment whether by male or female members of staff,” he added.

“We hope that when it comes into effect, it will serve as an institutional mechanism for the students and staff to get redress quickly and effectively,” he said.

In his remarks, Tukur commended Ahmadu Fintiri, the governor, for his contributions to the development of education in the state.

The VC said Fintiri’s support facilitated the successful conversion of the institution to a conventional university.

On his part, the governor hailed Tukur’s achievements as MAU’s VC and pledged support for the sustainable development of education in the state.

Fintiri also thanked President Muhammadu Buhari for approving Federal Medical Center (FMC), Yola, to serve as a teaching hospital for the institution.
