The authorities of the Ahmadu Bello University, (ABU) Zaria, said they would establish a liaison office in Abuja.
The Vice Chancellor of the institution, Professor Ibrahim Garba, disclosed the plan while receiving national executives of ABU Alumni Association, led by its President, Princess Henrietta Ingo Ogan, in his office.
He said the office in the nation’s capital would help to interface with the alumni and the larger society.
He said: “We are looking at the possibility of having a liaison office in Abuja as soon as possible. I understand we have some property in Abuja but they have been rented, we are likely to recover some for this purpose or build a new office.”
He commended the alumni association members for their numerous supports for the institution, urging them not to relent for the overall development of the institution.
Earlier, the president of the association, Princess Ogan, had told the vice chancellor that they were in his office to congratulate him on his new appointment, promising to support his policies and programmes.
She listed numerous achievements of the present leadership of the association to include registration of the association with the Corporate Affairs Commission, review of the association’s constitution, and birth of the ABU alumni magazine.
Ogan hinted on the association’s plans to raise N50billion to help address some of the infrastructural needs of the university.
