Babagana Zulum, the Borno governor, has approved the appointment of Haruna Dlakwa as the acting vice-chancellor (VC) of Borno State University in Maiduguri.


Bukar Tijani, secretary to the state government, confirmed Dlakwa’s appointment in a statement on Wednesday.

Tijani said the appointment followed the recommendation of the university’s governing council at its 10th meeting on April 15.

‘’Zulum extends warm congratulations to Dlakwa and expects the best until the substantive Vice-Chancellor is appointed for the university,’’ he said.


Until this appointment, Dlakwa was the deputy vice-chancellor of academics at the university.

Borno State University was only established in 2016. It has five faculties — including Sciences, Management, Arts, Social Science and Education — with over 20 departments.

The pioneer vice chancellor of the university was Umar Kyari Sandabe.


In June 2021, the university’s senate building was inaugurated by Muhammadu Buhari, former president of Nigeria.
