The Executive Secretary, National Universities Commission (NUC), Professor Abubakar Rasheed, said the Federal University Wukari, Taraba state would get approval for the establishment of a faculty of medicine before the end of the year.

Prof Rasheed, who stated this in Wukari while inaugurating 30 newly constructed projects funded by TETFund and undertaken during the tenure of Professor Abubakar Kundiri as Vice Chancellor of the university, said a team of experts from NUC would soon embark on an assessment visit to Wukari to evaluate facilities and level of preparedness of the institution for the programme.

“The Vice Chancellor has been on the neck of the NUC for approval to establish the Faculty of Medicine, and from the number of completed projects and facilities I have seen on ground today, I am convinced that the request is genuine and on course,” he stated.

Prof Rasheed in his words described Kundiri as one of the best performing vice chancellors in Nigeria and urged him to present a request within the next one week as a follow up with the NUC.

Earlier in his welcome address, the vice chancellor of the university, Professor Kundiri, stated that when he took over the institution in 2016, it was lagging behind in infrastructure as well as accreditation of courses.

He, however, positioned that as at today, about 27 of its courses were fully accredited and commended the NUC for their Cooperation even as he assure of completing at least 30 projects worth billions of naira within the period of his first tenure that ends in February 2021.

He pointed out some of the commissioned projects to include buildings for all faculties; academic staff offices/quarters; students hostels; university library, information and communication center; laboratories; convocation square; sports facilities; municipal facilities such as water, roads, electrical and other installations.

“Through the support of TETFund, we have continued to transform the face of the university towards meeting our goals of developing to a world class university that is dedicated to meeting the human resource and research requirements of Nigeria and the global community,” prof Kundiri submitted”.
