The Chief of Army Staff, Tukur Buratai, has announced that the Nigerian Army University, Biu in Borno State, will take off next September.

Buratai made the disclosure shortly after receiving the certificate of occupancy from Kashim Shettima, governor of the state.

Buratai said the army had already reached out to the National Universities Commission (NUC) to secure approval for the university.

According to him, army engineers had also commenced construction work at the site.


While thanking the Borno government for the allocation of the land, the army chief said funding for the university project was captured in the 2017 budget and commended the federal government for its commitment to the take-off of the institution.

He added that the university was being designed as a unique and specialised institution that would serve as solutions center especially to specific challenges facing the Army and north-east.

Responding, Shettima said the state government would provide necessary support towards take off of the institution.

The governor expressed confidence that when fully operational, the university would be a reference point for other universities in Africa.
