UNIABUJA, Saudi Arabia to collaborate on peace studies.

The University of Abu­ja (UNIABUJA) and the Kingdom of Saudi Ara­bia are to collaborate on pro­grammes that seek to boost aca­demic learning, research, and the promotion of world peace.
Vice-Chancellor of the Uni­versity, Professor Michael Adikwu and the Saudi Arabian Ambassador to Nigeria, Am­bassador Fahad Abdullah Se­fyan, gave this indication when the envoy visited the university recently.
According to a statement made available to The AU­THORITY by UNIABUJA’s Deputy Registrar (Information and Publications), Mr Wazi­ri Garba, Ambassador Sefyan said that there was a lot of ben­efit that the two countries could derive from mutual cooperation between the University and its counterparts in Saudia Arabia.
He listed joint effort towards the development of academ­ic programmes and researches which were aimed at enhanc­ing the capacity for economic growth of the two nations and the promotion of world peace as some of the key areas of collab­oration.
The envoy expressed the read­iness of the Kingdom to spon­sor some of the projects or programmes that would be iden­tified by both the University and the Saudi officials, and urged the university to identify those areas that were critical to its develop­ment for further discussion.
On his part, UNIABUJA’s Vice-Chancellor, who was rep­resented by the Director Devel­opment Office, Professor Otaki Alanana, noted that no universi­ty could hope to move forward if it did not tap from collaborations and active relations with the in­ternational community.
