The university is a corporate social responsibility of China Civil Engineering and Construction Company (CCECC) facilitated by Mr Amaechi.
Amaechi said the work has advanced greatly and he’s confident the university will commence operations this year.
“On the University, the CCECC said just seven buildings are left. But I have told the permanent secretary to invite them to a meeting. We can start functioning by September 2022,” he said.
Earlier, at the Dala Inland Dry Port Kano, the minister said although the structures are completed, he cannot invite the president to commission it until the landscaping is done.
