THE allocation of N50 million for the building of staff homes and student hostels at the Nigerian Army University, Biu (NAUB) has been approved by Borno State Governor Prof. Babagana Zulum.

Zulum made the announcements yesterday in response to Professor Kyari Mohammed, the vice chancellor of the Army University, who was leading a management team on a courtesy visit to the governor at the Government House in Maiduguri.

Zulum had extended series of support to the University of Maiduguri, the University of Maiduguri Teaching Hospital (UMTH), Federal Polytechnic Monguno, Federal College of Education Gwoza, and a host of other Federal Government institutions either being set up or existing in Borno State.

Governor Zulum during the courtesy visit directed Borno State’s Ministry of Education to prepare a list of deserving students that will be awarded scholarships to pursue higher education at the Nigerian Army University, Biu.

The governor also directed that beneficiaries be drawn from the three senatorial zones: Northern, Central and Southern senatorial districts of the state.
