The Borno State government has awarded a contract of 3.4billion naira for the construction of a state university.

The State Governor, Kashim Shettima, said that this has become necessary to help get the state out of the educational backwardness it has suffered over the years.

Shettima blamed the Boko Haram menace the state is suffering on the absence of education among the youths.

An implementation committee with members extracted from the University of Maiduguri and other institutions of higher learning in the state are already nurturing the project.



Equipping the state university and obtaining accreditation from the National University Commission is part of the Terms of Reference of the committee.
