The Vice-Chancellor, University of Abuja, Professor Abdul-Rasheed Na’Allah, has called on the University of Abuja Alumni Association, USA Inc., and its partner, King Baudouin Foundation, a United States-based independent organisation, to contribute to developing and lifting the University to greater heights.
Na’Allah made the call when he met some executives of the association and the officials of the foundation during a recent working visit to the US to discuss areas of support.
He said, “We are working to upgrade the ranking of the University of Abuja to a world class university, this cannot be done without academic and infrastructure development and creating better enabling environment for our students.
“As a public university, we cannot rely on the Federal Government alone for funding. We need to mobilise funds and there are no better people to come to than the alumni.’’
