As means of not devaluing Professor Haruna Yakubu’s achievements, the new Vice Chancellor promised to build on the foundation. Professor Teye served notice that his administration will not tolerate laziness in all sectors of the chain of command.

He therefore stressed the need for the teaching and non teaching staff to reinforce their teamwork. He pledged to liaise with traditional and opinion leaders and all duty bearers to make the UDS unique.

Heads of the various departments praised Professor Haruna Yakubu for his remarkable stewardship. They urged the new Vice Chancellor to emulate his predecessor.

According to the UDS Registrar Dr. A.BT Zakariah, the out-gone Vice Chancellor was a unifier and all-inclusive leader.

He said the university will forever be indebted to Professor Haruna Yakubu for his unprecedented record. Dr. Zakaria implored the new Vice Chancellor to abhor autocracy and deepen collaboration with the sectional heads.
