The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), Yusuf Maitama Sule University, (YUMSUK) Branch, has demanded the reinstatement of the revocated Kwanar Dawaki Campus and Centre for Entrepreneurship Studies at Dawakin Tofa Local Government.
The union, in a statement signed by its chairman Abdulrasaq Ibrahim, described as illegal the allocation and selling of land vested to the University at the Main Campus, along Muhammadu Buhari Way.

ASUU-YUMSUK called on the Visitor to the University to, in the interest of preserving industrial harmony, reinstate the affected facilities and the land to the University.
It also urged him to abstain from taking further decisions that could potentially undermine the growth of and expansion in the university.
“The unprecedented sale of state-owned properties by the Kano State Government is no longer news.
“More worrisome is revocation and sales of properties belonging to a virtually new university that aspires for growth.
“The government had revoked an important facility of the University at Kwanar Dawaki which was hosting faculty of Basic Medical sciences.
“This leaves the faculty members with no option than to squat in a small building at the Main Campus and the students shuttling between campuses for lectures and practicals.
“Recently, the government also revoked another University facility; Centre for Entrepreneurship Studies at Dawakin Tofa Local Government.
“This action, in particular, jeopardizes the conduct of Entrepreneurship Studies and IJMB programmes offered by the University,” it said.
