“These additional academic programmes will help expand opportunities to candidates in towns and cities within the states in the South West and beyond, and as well improve the university visibility and enhance its competiveness nationally, and within the sub-region. The university has just taken delivery of additional solar panels to compliment the existing ones in order to boost light and water supply on campus.
“The School of Allied Health and Nursing building, which is designed to accommodate nine of 120-seater laboratories each, six 80-seater classrooms, mini-auditorium, cafeteria, additional recreation facilities, staff offices and lounges and student centre is nearing completion.
