Senator Ekwunife Wants Nigerian Army University Biu, Borno State Decentralised

The Senator representing Anambra Central Senatorial District, Senator Uche Ekwunife has canvassed for the decentralization of the Nigerian Army University located at Biu in Borno State.

Ekwunife made this call during a public hearing held on Tuesday by the Senate committee on Army to consider the bill for an Act to establish the Nigerian Army University, Biu.

While speaking at the hearing, the Senator who is a member of the Senate committee emphasized that apart from the Army university being a citadel of learning, it can play a vital role in dealing with the security challenges bedeviling the country, as well as help strengthen the relationship between the military and the civilian population.

She advocated in very strong terms that campuses of the Army university be established in each of the six geopolitical zones in the country.

In particular, she proposed that the one for the South East should be located in Agulu, Anambra State where there is enough land to accommodate a campus of such university.

“This is a specialised university and first of its kind in Nigeria. Crime has no colour or religion. Crime is crime in any part of the country. That is why I suggest that we should have campuses in every zone while we have the centre in Borno State where the university is already sited”, she said.
