Barishal, Nov 3 (UNB) – Professor Dr Md Sadequl Arefin (Arefin Matin), a social work department professor of Rajshahi University, was appointed as the Vice-Chancellor of Barishal University on Sunday.
President Abdul Hamid, also the chancellor of the university, made the appointment six months after the removal of former VC Imamul Haque.
The Ministry of Education issued a gazette notification in this regard, saying Prof Arefin has been appointed for the next four years.
Abu Jafar Mia, president of Barishal University Teachers’ Association, welcomed the new VC, saying the university would face serious problems if the appointment was not made at such critical moment.
Former VC Haque was removed from his post about six months ago following a huge protest after he allegedly vilified his students.
