UNIABUJA Plans to Set-Up Chinese
University of Abuja, UNIABUJA to partner
Chinese Embassy in setting up a Chinese
language department following a kind gesture
made by the Chinese Embassy in Abuja by
presenting the institution some Information
Communication Technology (ICT) equipment.
The vice chancellor of the University of Abuja
(UniAbuja), Prof Michael Adikwu, said that the
institution would partner the Chinese Embassy in
setting up a Chinese language department.
Adikwu disclosed this yesterday at the donation
of some Information Communication
Technology (ICT) equipment to the school by the
Chinese Embassy in Abuja.
The items presented include 12 computers, three
printers and books on Chinese policies.
“One of the major problems of collaboration is
that you must be able to understand the people
you are collaborating with. We are talking about
having a department that teaches Chinese
language; we have spoken about it.
“The equipment they are talking about are ICT
equipment, computers and printers. What this
means is that our students can now key more into
“The entire world is going into ICT.
In fact, any institution that is not ICT compliant is
not an institution of the 21st century,’’ he said.
