The President and Founder of Maryam Abacha University of Nigeria (MAAUN), Professor Adamu Abubakar Gwarzo, has commended the Federal Government for granting the university a licence to operate in Nigeria.
Recall that the Federal Government had recently granted provisional license 20 new private universities, including MAAUN, to operate in the country.
In a statement he signed from Paris on Wednesday, Professor Gwarzo stated that he decided to establish the private university in Kano state for his desire to save Kano, Nigeria and Africa from a shortage of universities.
He said he is elated with the news that the university, whose campus is under construction in Kano has been granted a license to operate.
He said “granting the license had fulfilled his desire and commitment to see that Nigerians, especially the youths get quality university education comparable to Europe which would enable them to compete favourably with other university graduates across the globe,”
He specifically commended President Muhammadu Buhari, the Federal Executive Council and the National Universities Commission (NUC) as well as other well-wishers who called him or sent congratulatory messages after granting the licence.
Prof. Abubakar Gwarzo added that the license granted by the Federal Government would give him the courage and determination to go ahead with his intention to commence the construction of some Faculties and departments at the proposed MAAUN site in Gwarzo town.
He assured that the University management would do its best to provide students with quality education as they have put in place the best facilities in addition to qualified lecturers.
