The Registrar

Registrars' Brief Profile:


It is an honour to be part of a strong and reliable organization that provides a platform for the educational growth and development of not only Kano State but Nigeria in general. Aware of this fact, I deemed it necessary and imperative to serve Skyline University Nigeria as the Registrar to the best of my ability.

Skyline University Nigeria has put in place, some of the capable and modern resources, necessary for the smooth running of any university aspiring to have sustainable academic excellence following the best international practice. Similarly, the university has a rich culture of sincerity of purpose and teamwork. Put together, these would invariably lead to the placement of the University in the position of the best private university in the area of teaching and research in Nigeria. Therefore, I do not doubt that, with the skills and expertise of the staff at Skyline University Nigeria, the products of the University will meet the requirement of the global labour market.

It is gratifying to note that, the University, has commenced professional development and training in the different fields of Science, Arts and Management courses through its established Centre for Continuing Learning. The actualization of this training programme would go a long way in building competence and skills for a large number of professionals in Kano and neighbouring states who may not get a chance to travel outside the country to attend training.
