The Bauchi State Executive Council has approved the renaming of Bauchi State University, Gadau to Sa’adu Zungur University.

The state Commissioner of Education, Dr Aliyu Usman Tilde, who disclosed this in a statement shortly after the State Executive Council meeting Wednesday in Bauchi, said: “This is done to immortalize the name of late Malam Saadu Zungur (1915-1958), a Bauchi indigene that was among the leaders that fought for our independence, the mentor of Malam Aminu Kano, a one-time secretary of NCNC, a political activist whose progressive ideas shaped the Northern political culture to date.

“He was a great Hausa poet and social critic.”

Tilde said that the gazetting will soon take place, adding: “Alhamdulillah, His Excellency and the Executive Council have helped the Ministry see the dream promise it made to the representatives of the family of Malam Mu’azu when they came praying for his befitting immortalization become real.

“His Excellency, the Governor, Senator Bala Abdulkadir Mohammed, is particularly happy with the idea.

“We thank him immensely. This is a great day in the history of education in Bauchi State.”
