Hundreds of students of the Gombe State University took to the streets of Gombe metropolis yesterday to protest an alleged plan by the university’s governing council to sack the incumbent vice chancellor, Professor Abdullahi Mahdi.

The students, carrying placards bearing various inscriptions such as “Mahdi Must Stay” “No to Professor Idris” and “Sai Maidabino” among many others, marched to the Government House, Gombe, where they registered their grievances and urged government to retain the services of the incumbent vice chancellor.

Leader of the student Comrade Hamman Abubakar Galabi and former president of the students’ union government, who addressed the gathering, said the students were concerned about the rumor of the purported plan of the governing council to sack the vice chancellor.
