After 10 years, Prof Abdu Kasozi has retired from the National Council for Higher Education (NCHE). Speaking to The Observer today, Kasozi, 70, said he was happy with his work and had served enough.
"I'm proud that we have made it an institution with all the necessary structures to regulate tertiary education," he said.
He added that his other achievement was good management of public finances and a good mechanism for assessing politicians' academic qualifications, before they run for public office. Kasozi first joined the NCHE in 2002 and was appointed to serve for 10 years, effective December 1, 2002.
"So my term effectively ended on November 30, 2012 and I have already handed over," he added.
The NCHE had asked Kasozi to continue serving for an interim period of one-two years until a new team was in place.
"But the decision was supposed to be sanctioned by the minister [of Education] who did not agree to it," Kasozi said.
Kasozi, who is now preparing to return to academia, said he had no hard feelings and would consider writing book in the future.
