41-Year-Old Aisha Maikudi Becomes First Female Acting VC of UniAbuja

Aisha Sani Maikudi, a professor of international law, has been named acting vice-chancellor of the University of Abuja (UniAbuja).

UniAbuja’s acting director of public relations, Habib Yakoob, confirmed the appointment in an official statement issued on Thursday.

The appointment came after Maikudi was nominated at a valedictory senate assembly on the university’s main campus.

Abdul-Rasheed Na’Allah, the outgoing vice-chancellor whose tenure ended on June 30, stated that her employment is transitory.

He stated that it is awaiting ratification by the university’s governing council.

In her acceptance speech, Maikudi thanked the senators for their “strong support” for her.

Maikudi, who was born on January 31, 1983, is Northwestern Nigeria’s and University of Abuja’s youngest female law professor.

She attended Queens College in Lagos, where she earned her West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE).

She then attended the University of Reading, where she received an LLB in 2004 and an LLM from the London School of Economics and Political Science in 2005. In 2015, she earned her PhD in international law from the University of Abuja.

Maikudi began at UniAbuja as a Lecturer II on September 4, 2008, and ascended to the position of professor in 2022.

In 2018, she was the university’s first female deputy dean of the law faculty, and in 2019, she became the first director of the University of Abuja International Centre.

Maikudi has attended various national and international conferences in nations such as the United Kingdom, the United States, South Africa, Germany, Italy, and Egypt.

She has also done substantial research on United Nations law and has published extensively in this field.

Maikudi belongs to many professional associations, including the Nigerian Bar Association (NBA), the Nigerian Law Teachers Association (NLTA), and the International Federation of Women Lawyers (FIDA).
