“As part of efforts to ensure proper and smooth administration of the college, a free and fair election has been held, and Badmus has emerged the new Deputy Rector (Academics),” he said.
The spokesman said that Badmus, a native of Ibadan, joined the service of YABATECH in 1997 as Lecturer 2 and rose to the position of Chief Lecturer in 2013.
The spokesman said that Badmus also headed YABATECH’s Department of Mechanical Engineering.
According to Ejiofor, Badmus holds a B.Sc. in Mechanical Engineering, M.Sc. in Mechanical Engineering and a PhD, also in Mechanical Engineering.
Ejiofor said that the new deputy rector, registered with the Council for the Regulation of Engineering in Nigeria, has published a number of scholarly papers in both local and international journals.
