The Federal Government has approved N2 billion for the establishment of Nigerian Army University, Biu, Borno State.
Executive Secretary, Tertiary Education Trust Fund, Abdullahi Baffa, made this disclosure when the Chief of Army Staff, Lt.-Gen. Tukur Buratai, visited the agency in Abuja on Monday.
Baffa said approval for the funds was given by the Federal Executive Council, noting that the establishment of a university for the military was overdue.
“The FEC has approved N2bn for the establishment of the Nigerian Army university in Biu, Borno State. I also want to congratulate the Chief of Army Staff and the entire Nigerian Army in the tremendous successes that are being recorded in the fight against insurgency, militancy, rustling, brigandage and in the fight to keep Nigeria one.
“Congratulations for such huge successes that are being recorded and we will continue to see them record more success in their quest to keep us safe, to keep us being one,” the TETFUND boss said.
Buratai said the university would be tailored to meet the needs of the military and also develop the science and technology base of the nation.
