University of Africa for Bayelsa to be establish as NUC give approval

The National Universities Commission (NUC), has
approved the establishment of the University of
Africa for Bayelsa, the 43rd state university in the
country. This is contained in a statement issued by Mr Daniel
Iworiso-Markson, Chief Press Secretary to the
Bayelsa Governor, Seriake Dickson in Yenagoa on
Saturday. According to the statement, NUC handed over the
letter of approval to Gov. Dickson when he visited
the commission in Abuja. It quoted Dickson as expressing gratitude to the
NUC’s Executive Secretary for the warm reception
accorded him and his team. Dickson explained that the University of Africa,
Toru-Orua, was conceived as a public private
partnership venture and designed as a first rate
institution of learning to attract some of the best
teachers from Africa and the world. He said the university would be funded by private
partners while the government would only provide
the enabling environment for its establishment. The statement quoted Prof Julius Okojie, NUC’s
Executive Secretary, as congratulating the state. Okojie said the establishment of the university took
effect from July 28, having complied with the basic
requirements. According to Okojie, the University of Africa is
143rd in the Nigerian university system. (NAN)
