Sultan of Sokoto, 3 others get honorary doctorate degree

The Modibbo Adama University (MAU), Yola, has conferred an honorary doctorate degree  to the Sultan of Sokoto, Alhaji Abubakar Sa’ad, and three others.

The three others are Alhaji Muhammad Indimi, a philanthropist;  former Gov. Boni Haruna of Adamawa, and Alhaji Dahiru Bobbo, a  technocrat.

The Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Abdullahi Tukur, made the disclosure at the university’s 27th convocation ceremony  on Saturday.

According to Tukur,  the awardees are notable Nigerians that any university will be proud to have.

Tukur congratulated the graduands and lauded President Muhammadu Buhari for assenting to the bill for the conversion of the university from a specialised  institution to a conventional one, in 2021.

“I am excited to report to this gathering that the conventional status of the University has opened new avenues for the institution, the state and the region,” he said.

He said that the university had  recorded milestones,  including having  a faculty of law and recovery of some programmes hitherto denied accreditation, as well as conversion of the Federal Medical Hospital, Yola,  to its teaching hospital.
