President Muhammadu Buhari has approved the appointment of Professor Umar Adam Katsayal as the Vice Chancellor of the Federal University of Transportation Daura in Katsina State.

The Permanent Secretary Federal Ministry of Transportation, Dr. Magdalene Ajani, said the appointment is in line with the Federal University of Transportation (Establishment) Act 2022, Part 1, Section 3(6).

According to a letter signed by the Permanent Secretary, the Vice Chancellor’s appointment is for a five-year term that begins when he starts working.

While congratulating the Vice-Chancellor, the Honourable Minister of Transportation, Mu’azu Jaji Sambo, charged the Vice-Chancellor to run with the vision that birthed the institution, graduating scholars that will break new ground with cutting-edge interventions in the country’s transportation sector. While wishing him well, he implored him to make the institution a university of national unity.

Professor Umar Adam Katsayal is a professor of pharmacognosy and drug development at Ahmadu Bello University, Zaria, with teaching and research experiences in Nigerian universities spanning over two decades. He is an experienced professor with a demonstrated history of working in the education management industry. Skilled in lecturing, public speaking, management, and strategic planning. He is the consultant on the establishment of the university as well as the chairman of the interim management committee of the university.

The Transportation University would, among other things, pave the way for the domestication of railway engineering and general transportation sciences in Nigeria, thereby bridging the technology and skill gap in the railway and ultimately the transportation sector. It is believed that the university can reach its target of training people, transferring technology, and developing the railway industry, which is in huge demand in Nigeria and the West African region as a whole.
