…Chief of Army Staff moves it to hometown
The Military Command has gotten approval for the Nigerian Army to set-up an Army University in Bornu State.
The approval to build the said University followed the decision made by the Federal Executive Council (FEC) in her meeting held Wednesday in Abuja.
According to the approval as granted states that the university will be located in Biu, Borno State.
The approval follows the presentation of a memo by the Minister of Education, Adamu Adamu.
You may recall that the Chief of Army Staff, Tukur Buratai, a lieutenant general, had earlier in March announced that the Nigerian Army will upgrade the Institute of Technology and Environmental Studies to a full fledge University of Technology and Environmental Studies.
“The university was conceived as a unique one that will be different from conventional universities in Nigeria.
“The concept is to make it a solution provider and a centre of excellence for a variety of technologically related ventures such as generation and armament production,” said Burattai.
The University is sited in the Chief of Army staff's village in Bornu state.
