President Dekle has designated the former Comptroller of the Adamawa Command of the Nigeria Immigration Service, Mr. Sule Wunti, as AUN Ambassador.
Wunti visited the campus before leaving Yola for his new job as the Assistant Comptroller-General of Immigration (Intelligence) at the Command Headquarters in Abuja.
Dr. Dekle, who received the ACG in her office on January 31, congratulated him on his new position. She said although Mr. Wunti assumed office before she became AUN’s president, she has heard and seen much of his work, contributions, and support to AUN. She cited examples with expat regularization and timely renewal, and guidance to AUN to meet statutory requirements.
The president placed the AUN lapel pin on him and declared him AUN ambassador. Mr. Wunti was also presented with AUN souvenirs.
“AUN looks forward to working with your successor to continue with the good work.
The visitation meeting had some senior management attending, including Abba Tahir, VP of University Relations; Dr. Lionel von Frederick Rawlins, AVP of Security & Safety, and Nourah Bamalli, AVP of HR & Planning.
Responding, Alhaji Wunti said on assumption of office in April 2016, he realized that AUN is a major stakeholder for the immigration services in the Adamawa State Command. He also recognized the Founder of AUN to be a retired senior officer of the Nigeria Customs Service.
“We do show respect for our senior officers, whether in the service or outside. It becomes imperative for me to take this relationship to the higher level. I will discharge responsibility as AUN ambassador.”
He said a new comptroller had been posted to the Adamawa State Command. “Considering the existing relationship between the command and AUN, I will expect nothing less but to take the relationship to a higher level.”
