Prof Abbas expressed his appreciation to all staff that voted for him during the community parley last week where he polled 1,026 votes to beat three other contestants to get community acceptance and subsequently emerge the 11th vice chancellor of the university.

“I need all the cooperation of the council in order to deliver from the responsibilities that attached to the office,” Prof. Abbas said.
