UNIFEMGA's National Reunion to Feature Professor Abubakar Rasheed on Future of Higher Education in Nigeria

The National Universities Commission (NUC) has been at the forefront of shaping higher education in Nigeria. As the country continues to evolve, there is a growing need for forward-thinking leaders who can guide universities into the future. That’s why UNIFEMGA is excited to announce that Professor Abubakar Rasheed, the current Executive Secretary of the NUC, will be speaking on “The Future of Higher Education in Nigeria” at the upcoming UNIFEMGA National Reunion.

As an accomplished academic and administrator, Professor Rasheed brings a wealth of experience to the discussion. He is a Professor of English and the 9th Vice-Chancellor of Bayero University, Kano. He has also held leadership positions at several universities and served as the Executive Secretary of the National Board for Technical Education (NBTE) before joining the NUC.

The theme of this year’s reunion is “The Future of Higher Education in Nigeria: Emerging Trends, Challenges and Opportunities.” It’s a timely and important topic, given the challenges that universities in Nigeria face today. With rising demands for access to higher education, limited resources, and rapidly evolving technologies, it’s essential to have informed discussions about how to move forward.

Professor Rasheed’s address promises to be a highlight of the reunion. His insights on the future of higher education in Nigeria will be valuable to everyone in attendance, from alumni to students and faculty. He will speak on the first day of the reunion, which is set to take place from May 12th to May 14th.

In addition to Professor Rasheed’s keynote address, the reunion will feature a range of activities, including a welcome launch and cocktail, a special Jumat service, visits to the management of OAU and the Boardroom, and more. Alumni from different chapters across the country, including Lagos, Abuja, Kwara, Ibadan, and Ile-Ife, will come together to celebrate their shared experiences and look towards the future.

Overall, the UNIFEMGA National Reunion promises to be an exciting and thought-provoking event. We look forward to hearing Professor Rasheed’s insights on the future of higher education in Nigeria and engaging in productive discussions with our fellow alumni.
