Confusion in Nasarawa poly as two registrars emerge
There was confusion in Nasarawa State Polytechnic, Lafia, as two registrars emerged following the sacking of three principal officers of the institution.
While one of the embattled registrars, Mr. Habu Danladi, was appointed by the out-going registrar, Mr. Labani Joseph, the Acting Rector, Mr. Ali Gabu, appointed Mr. Ibrahim Usman as the second acting registrar.
The Guardian gathered that the two persons are laying claim to the office.
When contacted, Gabu said: “The institution is still under-going the process of handing over and therefore, it is not in his power to make any policy statement on who is the authentic acting registrar, and more so he just took over the office.”
But a source, who claimed anonymity, told The Guardian in Lafia that shortly after the directive by government compelling the out-going registrar to hand over to the most senior officer, the government again ordered the acting rector to appoint Mr. Ibrahim Usman who is not the most senior but the choice of the government.
Governor Umaru Tanko Al-Makura had last week sacked the rector, the registrar and the bursar and ordered that they should hand over to their deputies pending when the investigation panel would conclude its assignment.
