Abdulrasheed personally announced his departure on Monday at the Commission’s headquarters during the approval ceremony of a provisional license for Kogi State University, Kabba, in Kogi State.
Abdulrasheed referred to the newly approved university as his “last baby in the Commission.
He leaves behind a seven-year tenure during which he granted approvals to a plethora of universities throughout the country.

He disclosed that he was heading back to the classroom where he came from.
