    A Brief Profiling of the Alumni.

    The Former Vice Chancellor, Professor Shehu U. Abdullahi, DVM (ABU), Ph.D. (Min. USA), FCVSN, FIMC, OFR, MNI. Professor Shehu U. Abdullahi is an epitome of intellectual pride, renowned veterinary surgeon and the Vice Chancellor of Ahmadu Bello University (ABU), Zaria, Nigeria. He is also the Chief Fundraiser of the University and has been involved in the management and coordination of a comprehensive fundraising program for the total development of the University to stand the test of time. Prior to his appointment as the Vice Chancellor of the University, he was the Provost of the Nigerian Defense Academy (NDA), Kaduna, Nigeria. He joined the services of Ahmadu Bello University in 1977 and became a Professor in 1989. Since then, he serves the University and other Bodies on various capacities, among which includes: NUC Accreditation Committee on Veterinary Medicine in Nigerian Universities and Vice President, African Strategic and Peace Research Groups Nigeria Chapter (2000 – 2004). He was at one time the Divisional Veterinary Officer, Nsukka (1976 – 1977) and Project Director, Azanci Africa Limited (1992 – 1993). He was also at the elite National Institute for Policy and Strategic Studies (NIPSS), Kuru – Jos, Nigeria in 1990 (later as visiting Research Professor in 1996) as well as at Cape town University, South Africa in 1997 where he obtained a certificate in Senior Management. His academic achievements include the publication of over 81 articles made in international veterinary journals and the discovery of the treatment of an animal disease called urolithiasis (stone disease in 1992), which has since been adopted for treatment of human beings. Also, he received a certificate of recognition for excellent academic performance from the University of Minnesota, USA (where he had his Ph.D.). Pfizer Nigeria Plc gave him a merit award for significant contribution to animal health. He has served as external assessor to several Readers and Professors across various Universities. Professor Shehu U. Abdullahi’s worry is about “what will become of ABU in the next twenty years or to come, amidst dwindling financial support of Government to tertiary Institutions in the country”. Thus, Professor Shehu U. Abdullahi challenge is geared toward fashioning out a tool for the exploitation of other sustainable source(s) of funds for the University, if it is to sustain its progressive drive for excellence. His appeal now is for all Stakeholders and Donor-Investors in Education to support ABU (being one of the oldest, largest and truly cosmopolitan citadels of learning in the sub-Saharan Africa) with financial and material resources and salvage it from going into extinction. For ABU, Prof. Shehu Abdullahi is a living testimony to the gains of diligence, discipline, dynamism, dedication and distinction. He is affable and personable, exciting and excitable. His laughter somewhat extra-ordinary tells a lot about ABU vivacious disposition!!!
