Former presidential aspirant in the 2019 general elections, Adamu Garba II, has revealed that he was expelled from Kano State University of Technology, for his stand on equal political participation rights of students in the students’ union elections.
He revealed this in an interview with Legit, explaining that the university’s authority abruptly came up with the idea of indigenising the union’s presidential seat, having seen the unflinching support he garnered from the students in order to prevent him from winning the seat; hence, disqualified him.
According to the APC chieftain, the authority falsely accused him of fomenting trouble in the school in order to get at him for not supporting the emergence of their own candidate.
He added that he was suspended and also expelled for not dancing to their whims and caprices.
He further explained that the authority falsely accused him of fomenting trouble in the school in order to get at him for not supporting the emergence of their own candidate. He added that he was suspended and also expelled for not dancing to their whims and caprices.
Garba noted: “It was a state university and I was a very popular guy but the school authority did not want anybody to be the President of the students’ union if you are not from Kano state.
“I was from Adamawa state and I became the popular candidate. I was contesting under the umbrella of those who believe that everyone should be allowed to participate regardless of your origin including the Christians.
“So, that does not speak well with some of the extremist elements. At the same time also, there was this serious sharia thing in Kano. Although they knew if I had gone into the election I would have won landslide, but they decided to disqualify me and I accepted the disqualification and moved on.
“That was why without committing anything, some problems took place and I was not even in the school compound when the problem happened.
“So, they now told me that the people that caused the problem were my people and therefore I have to be suspended. While I was suspended, I was invited back for fair hearing so that they can hear my own side of the story even as they asked me to indict other students so that they can let me stay and take necessary actions on those students.”
He said he moved on for Computer Studies, which made him become a computer guru and thereafter moved to Lagos to start his own business even though he later went back to another university.
