(MoU) with Urban Shelter Infrastructure Ltd, Abuja.

Speaking during the signing, the VC said the essence of having a Federal University in our community is for us to own it because it is the interest of the community that the university should be seen to be serving, adding that there is a very close engagement between the University and that of community therefore leaders in the state in his opinion are to find out how FUTMinna, which has all kinds of expertise can help the community.

Prof. Bala congratulated the Chairman of Urban Shelter, Mallam Ibrahim Aliyu for his commitment to education and the University, pointing out that they are the first indigenous developers to FUTMinna and about the only personality from Niger State that found it fit to donate an edifice on Build, Operate and Transfer (BOT) basis to the University some years back, adding that for this reason, it came natural to accept their proposal to build hostel for the University not just because they are a leading company in estate development.

The helmsman expressed Managements appreciation to Urban Shelter for the honour accorded the University, adding that he has no doubt it will be successful.

He noted that the Chairman of Urban Shelter is a son of the soil and he is the only one that has found it worthy to look at the University as a partner and hopes that the gesture will show other Nigerlites that they can come and partner and invest in the University, adding that if this works, he believes that more will come and invest in the University.

He revealed that Urban Shelter has also given a commitment to build a guest house later. The VC appreciated Urban Shelter for their gradual investment in infrastructure that would make the University to become a living environment not just for lectures.

The VC pointed out that student accommodation has been a concern as the University has over 22 thousand students but has provision for less than five thousand bed space, adding that he aspires to have as much as 75% of students on campus which he said will expose the students to the life of students in campus and also avail the opportunity for mentorship of the students and wants a case where students will live off campus out of choice not out of necessity.

In his remark, the MD, Urban Shelter Infrastructure Ltd, Rilwan Salihu Aliyu who was representing the Chairman disclosed that the Chairman is passionate in helping to restore every aspect of education and both of them being alumni of the University know the importance of hostels, so they see working for the FUT as home.

He assured Management of a thorough job, adding that they will ensure the edifice is not just beautiful but functional.
