Senate Committee on Army on Tuesday held a Public Hearing to consider a Bill for the establishment of  Nigerian Army University Biu, Borno State.

Making a presentation at the occasion, Chief of Army Staff,  Lt-Gen TY Buratai thanked members of the Senate Committee on Army for their contributions, unwavering interest and support in passing the bill for the establishment of the Nigerian Army University Biu (NAUB).

He stated that the establishment of the university will surely address the critical need for education in different specialized fields.

The university, he said,  is equally positioned to provide necessary academic programmes to counter negative narratives and ideology of the terrorists. It is one of the Nigerian Army’s major efforts in the pursuit of winning the hearts and minds of the society and a remarkable milestone in promoting excellent civil-mil relations.

Gen Buratai made it clear that – “every eligible Nigerian, irrespective of geographical location, language, tribe or religion has equal opportunity to pursue academic learning in the university”.

He expressed gratitude to President Muhammadu Buhari for giving the approval to establish the university in the year 2018.

The NAUB which is located in Biu Local Government Area of Borno State has since been running courses in different academic fields. It is gradually becoming a citadel of learning and emerging a centre for academic and intellectual excellence.

The public hearing witnessed the participation of relevant  stakeholders from National University Commission, Federal Ministry of Education, Ministry of Defence, Civil Society Organizations and the University Council among others.
