The Minister of Religion instructs Lamuda to be the Head of the IAIN Palu Bureau

The Indonesian Minister of Religion Lukman Hakim Saifuddin ordered Lamuda to serve as executor of  duties of the Head of the General Administration, Academic, and Student Affairs (AUAK) at the State Islamic Institute of Religion (IAIN) Palu, Central Sulawesi. This is stated in the Indonesian Minister of Religion's Order Number B.II / 3/32630, stipulated on September 24, 2019 in Jakarta.

In the warrant stated that starting from October 1, 2019, Lamuda, in addition to his position as Head of Administration Section of the Faculty of Sharia, also carried out his duties as executing the duties of the Head of the AUAK Bureau of IAIN Palu, until definitive officials appointed. The warrant also stated that Lamuda carry out the order carefully and with full responsibility.

"Today we are here to attend the handover of positions from the old bureau chief, to the executor of the bureau chief's duties. The handover of this position is a follow up to the Minister of Religion's order," said IAIN Palu Rector, Prof. Dr. H. Sagaf S Pettalongi M.Pd, in Palu, Thursday.

Before the Minister of Religion issued a warrant, the Head of the IAIN Palu Air Force Bureau, held by Ramang, was then temporarily replaced by Lamuda with the rank of supervisor of level I, class IV / b. Ramang switched from administration to functional as a lecturer at IAIN Palu after serving as Head of the Bureau.

The Chancellor of IAIN Palu, Prof. Sagaf Pettalongi stated, the change of officials is something that is common in the bureaucracy. With the Minister of Religion's letter, he said, Ramang was returned as the associate professor in the Tarbiyah Faculty of IAIN Palu.

"Actually, Mr. Ramang's term of office is until December 31, 2019. But because Mr. Ramang has switched to functional, this is earlier and is returned as the associate professor at the Tarbiyah Faculty," said Prof. Sagaf.

He acknowledged that Ramang contributed a lot to the development of IAIN Palu, even since the institution was still a State Islamic High School (STAIN).

Therefore, he said, Lamuda as the executor of the duty of the Head of the AUAK Bureau had to learn a lot with Ramang, because the duties and functions of the bureau chief were very extensive. Therefore, it needs coordination and synergy with the heads of departments in each faculty and rector.

"The new bureau chief or task executor must often coordinate so that administration is running well," he said.

After the issuance of an order from the Minister of Religion Lukman Hakim Saifuddin regarding carrying out the duties of the Head of the IAIN Palu Air Force Bureau, the IAIN Palu Rector immediately held a handover of positions attended by all officials with additional duties.
