The chairman of the Senate Committee on Defence, Senator Aliyu Magatakarda Wamakko, is set to establish a private university in Sokoto State.
According to report, the National Universities Commission (NUC) has presented application and processing forms for the setting up of a private university to the former governor.
A statement issued in Abuja made it known that the forms were presented to the former governor of Sokoto on Thursday during his visit the headquarters of National Universities Commission (NUC).
Wamakko stated that his zeal to establish a private institution was borne out of the fact that only qualitative education can guarantee development for the younger generation, adding that the institution, which would be established through his foundation would complement the state university he created during his tenure as the governor of Sokoto.
The Executive Secretary of NUC, Prof. Rasheed Abubakar, commended Wamakko for his quest to establish the private university.
“We pledge our commitment to your goal and mission of setting up a university. if there are 4-5 people like you multiplying your ideology at the helm of governance, Nigeria should certainly be better,” Prof. Abubakar stated.
