Book Launch – Alh Adamu Liman Ciroma

The Book Launch Committee invites you to the launching of the Autobiography of Alh Adamu Liman Ciroma(ALC), an “extraordinary public servant”, ” a humble, just but firm leader”, one-time Chairman of NUC and Pro-Chancellor/Chairman of Council of University of Ibadan. He was a recipient of Hon Doctorate degrees of the University of Ibadan, UDUS and ABU.
To his credit, it was in his time as Permanent Secretary of Federal Ministry of Education that the Universities of Calabar, Jos, Maiduguri and Sokoto actually took off. Ilorin, Kano and Port Harcourt were also established under his watch. His masterly handling of the difficult task of founding 7 Universities at about the same time made the takeoff successful. We owe this great man a debt of gratitude.

ALC was the very first Nigerian graduate in Archaeology. He worked for the Northern Region government, the NorthEast government and then ended his public service career at the Federal level. In the Northeast he was, among other assignments, a Permanent Secretary in the Ministry of Education. Under him, NECAS (later became UNIMAID) was conceived. He was also part of the Screening Council of ABU that conceived the SBS.
At the Federal level, he was Permanent Secretary in the Ministry of Industries during which good industrial policies were introduced and many industries were established, a number of which have admirably endured to date. Later, in 1975, he became Permanent Secretary of Federal Ministry of Education. Under his watch, Federal Colleges of Education and Advanced Teachers Colleges were created to support the Govt’s UPE programme. He also made sure that education received a boost.
In the concluding part of his career, ALC got appointed by Obasanjo as Head of Service and Secretary to Govt of the Federation. In that vintage position, he made sure all government programs and projects were accomplished. In particular, he gave useful advises to General Obasanjo which made the handover to Civilian rule in 1979 remarkably successful.
The book which Prof Ayo Banjo called a 3-in-1 i.e Autobiography, Biography and a Compendium of tributes, gives all details. Please join us to honour this great but largely unsung Nigerian hero.
