Early Friday morning on 3rd August 2018, our International research student from Nigeria, Hassan Muhammad, welcomed a gorgeous and healthy little baby boy (Muhammad Hamiz) who has stolen our hearts.

Hassan Muhammad is a research fellow under the CUI-TWAS Sandwich Fellowship from Bayero University, Kano. He is currently completing part of his research at the Department of Mathematics, Islamabad Campus under the supervision of Prof. Dr. Abdullah Shah.

Hassan is accompanied by his wife Juwairiyya and two beautiful children Hanif and Hanifa who are 4 and 3 years old. The family has just welcomed their third baby whose name is yet to be decided.  Rector CUI sent his warm wishes and bouquet to the proud parents to celebrate this amazing news.

Everyone at the International office couldn’t be more excited as it’s the very first time in history that one of our international students have had a baby. We hope that Pakistan stays forever in his heart as he will definitely stay in ours.
