ICT varsity: Committee Okays facilities at Enugu campus

The Implementation Committee set up by the Federal Govern­ment to conduct prelimi­nary studies that will en­hance the establishment of a multi-campus Information Communications Technol­ogy (ICT) University in the country, has given its pass mark to the Enugu campus of the proposed institution, located at Ibagwa Nike.
 
Members of the commit­tee dropped this hint while speaking to journalists after the inspection tour of the facilities already stationed at the campus.
 
The members of the com­mittee that visited Enugu were led by Dr Henry Nke­madu, Mathew A. Olaniyan and Mr Osita Okechukwu, the Director General, Voice of Nigeria (VON).
 
The proposed ICT Uni­versity with headquarters at Digital Bridge Institute (DBI), Abuja, will have oth­er campuses located in La­gos, Enugu, Kano, Asaba and Yola.
 
Nkemadu said there is ev­ery indication that the Enu­gu campus is ready for take­off going by the number of physical infrastructures it parades including class­room blocks that are well-equipped, hostels, among others.
 
On his part, Osita Oke­chukwu, stressed that the proposed university is part of President Muhammadu Buhari’s initiative to ensure Nigerians improve on their level of creativity through ICT.
 
He expressed optimism that the coming of the ICT university will help in pro­ducing the desired man­power to enhance the devel­opment of the country and stimulate creative thinking.
 
He said, “In fulfilment of Mr. President’s objective to set up University of ICT, so as to enhance learning en­vironment and create mil­lions of jobs through skilled ICT workforce, the Minis­try of Communications set up an implementation committee, chaired by eru­dite Professor Julius Okojie, former Secretary of Nation­al Universities Commission (NUC) and Dr Amina Sam­bo Magaji as its Secretary.”
