   Prior to his appointment as the Vice Chancellor of the University, he was the Provost of the Nigerian Defense Academy (NDA), Kaduna, Nigeria.

Since then, he serves the University and other Bodies on various capacities, among which includes: NUC Accreditation Committee on Veterinary Medicine in Nigerian Universities and Vice President, African Strategic and Peace Research Groups Nigeria Chapter (2000 – 2004). He was at one time the Divisional Veterinary Officer, Nsukka (1976 – 1977) and Project Director, Azanci Africa Limited (1992 – 1993).

Pfizer Nigeria Plc gave him a merit award for significant contribution to animal health. He has served as external assessor to several Readers and Professors across various Universities.

    Professor Shehu U. Abdullahi’s worry is about “what will become of ABU in the next twenty years or more to come, amidst dwindling financial support of Government to tertiary Institutions in the country”. Thus, Professor Shehu U. Abdullahi challenge is geared toward fashioning out a tool for the exploitation of other sustainable source(s) of funds for the University, if it is to sustain its progressive drive for excellence.

    His appeal now is for all Stakeholders and Donor-Investors in Education to support ABU (being one of the oldest, largest and truly cosmopolitan citadels of learning in the sub-Saharan Africa) with financial and material resources and salvage it from going into extinction. For ABU, Prof. Shehu Abdullahi is a living testimony to the gains of diligence, discipline, dynamism, dedication and distinction. He is affable and personable, exciting and excitable. His laughter somewhat extra-ordinary tells a lot about ABU vivacious disposition!!!
