The management of the University of Maiduguri (UNIMAID) has to ‘rerports and commentaries’ that Dr. Yakubu Nura, one of the lecturers in the institution’s Department of Physics won the ‘World Physics Competition’.
According to the university management, the reported award has now become a subject of controversy which is capable of gragging the name of the institution into ridicle and disrepute.
Findings made available to schoolworld revealed that the institution’s Director of Radio and Public Relations, Prof. Danjuma Gambo, made it known that UNIMAID stated that “For the avoidance of doubt, neither Dr. Nura nor the organistion that reportedly gave him the award has officially contacted the university management with credible information on the matter.”
Recall that it was reported that Dr. Nura won a ‘world physics championship’ award last week Friday. He was said to have named the ‘Father of modern Einstein’s Planetary Equation studies in Physics’.
“The university will do the needful whenever it receives official, verifiable information from impeccable sources in order to put the matter into proper perspective,” Danjuma stated.
