The National Executive Committee (NEC) of the Ahmadu Bello University (ABU) Zaria Alumni Association has expressed its readiness to work with Kebbi State government in the area of developmental programmes.
The association’s National President, Prof. Ahmed Tijani Mora, disclosed this on Monday when he led the executive members on a courtesy visit to Governor Atiku Bagudu in Birnin Kebbi, the state capital.
He told his host that some projects considered as priority had been identified by the NEC of the body and approved by the General House for execution.
Among the projects are the building of the pedestrian bridge at the North-Gate on the ever-busy Zaria-Sokoto Highway which will cost N80 million, the Laptop Computer Loan Scheme for students through Omatek Ventures Distribution Ltd.
Others are the construction of the ABU Alumni Association Postgraduate Hostel at the cost of N2.3 million and the purchase of 33-seater busses with initial acquisition of five.
