Nigeria: University of Technology Abaji to Start December 8

The FCT Minister, Senator Bala Abdulkadir Mohammed, Monday said Abuja University of Technology, Abaji (AUTA) will now take off on December 8. The minister stated this while receiving briefs on activities of the Education Secretariat.

He explained that 15 percent performance examination results is unacceptable, adding that the FCT Administration has invested so much in the provision of infrastructure for the education sub-sector and deserves better results.

On project implementation in FCT schools, Senator Mohammed, stated that funds utilization on projects will be strictly monitored to ensure set goals are realized.

He directed all agencies under the FCT Administration to set up a quality control unit in order to guarantee that government projects are implemented as well as monitored in consonance with the transformation agenda of President Goodluck Jonathan.

He also directed that appreciable percentage of funds meant for the education secretariat be set aside to finance scholarships meant for indigene/indigent students; saying that such scholarship be transparently disbursed.
