Adamawa violence: AUN reassures students, parents

WorldStage Newsonline-- The American University of Nigeria has reassured the University community including parents that the institution will always act in their best interest, despite the recent security challenges that bedeviled Yola.

According to a statement from the University's spokesman and Assistant Vice President Abba Abubakar Tahir, President of AUN, Dr. Margee Ensign, said in a recent blog on Nigeria that the University is prepared to arrange the airlifting of returning students, faculty and staff to Yola to start the spring 2012 semester beginning this January.

"If there is a need to charter planes to bring back our students (both our secondary students as well as university students) faculty, and staff, we will do that and will inform you of your options, she said in the blog entry sent to The Huffington Post, an online medium.

She reiterated the AUN mission as a Development University contributing to improving lives of people in the community and country, and ensuring that students understand and learn solutions to their countrys problems.

Our students teach literacy in prisons, work with orphans and HIV/AIDS patients and teach local teachers how to use computers. It is only with education, employment and better access to health care that the problems facing Nigeria and many poor countries will be solved.
