IMSU To Get N1.5 billion Project Fund From Federal Government

The Imo State University (IMSU), Owerri will receive the sum of N1.5 billion from the federal government for the execution of various projects in the institution.
This was made known by the Minister of Education, Malam Ibrahim Shekarau, during his impact assessment visit to the school, where he was represented by Mrs Viola Onwuliri, the Minister of State for Education.
Shekarau said that the Federal Government was committed to transforming the education sector.
“We will ensure that education in Nigeria is something other nations will envy and copy; we want students to reciprocate FG’s efforts by shunning cultism and exam malpractice” he said.
On his part, Malam Suleiman Bogoro, the Executive Secretary of the Tertiary Education Trust Fund (TETFund), said the fund had committed the sum of N4 billion to IMSU within the last seven months.
Bogoro said that aside infrastructure development, the fund was also paying attention to human development through capacity building.
Earlier, the Vice Chancellor of IMSU, Prof. Ukachukwu Awuzie, commended TETfund for sustaining the tempo of development in higher institutions since 1992.
He said that through TETFund, the school was able to build e-library and an ICT centre with 248 work stations.
