Minister inaugurates ultra modern Senate Building in BUK



The Minister of Education, Malam Adamu Adamu, on Thursday inaugurated a new Senate Building constructed by the Tertiary Education Trust Fund (TETfund), at the Bayero University Kano (BUK).

The Senate building designed with over 200 offices was named after Prof. Adamu Abubakar, the former Vice Chancellor (VC) of the University, now Executive Secretary of the National University Commission (NUC).

Abubakar was the ninth VC of the University, who served between 2010 and 2015.

The News Agency of Nigeria reports that the Minister was represented by the Registrar, Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB), Prof. Ishaq Olodele.

Adamu called on the incoming VC of the University, Prof. Sagir Abbas to sustain the tempo of development in the university. 

“The new Senate Building should be a big challenge to the new administration to sustain the current tempo of development in the university,”Adamu said. 

He commended the University for establishing a number of purposeful research centres for conducting research in various fields of studies for the development of the country. 

Adanu said: “It is worthy to note that research centres that are purposeful are springing up in the university which should be commended as they will go a long way in promoting research for the development of the country.” 

The Minister noted that Bayero University had been able to maintain the tradition it was known for as one of the universities that enjoyed peace among both the former and the sitting VCs, as being experienced in other universities in the country.

“The university has maintained the tradition it is known for being at peace, as there are no quarrels between or among the former VCs and sitting VC unlike what is happening in other universities,”he said. 

Also speaking, Prof. Abubakar commended Tetfund for executing the project and the BUK management for naming the edifice after him.
