He said the action was subject to disciplinary processes and the university’s council 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.
Ja’afaru said the university would soon implement a policy on sexual harassment, adding that it was currently awaiting the approval of the 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.
“We hope that when it comes into effect, it will serve as an institutional mechanism for the students and staff to get a redress quickly and effectively,” he said.
Ja’afaru further said that a lot had been achieved under Tukur’s tenure in the area of revenue generation, agriculture, staff and student welfare, as well as the successful accreditation of over 92 per cent of programmes in the institution. (NAN)
