The Abdul Samad Rabiu Africa Initiative (ASR Africa) has started construction of a 500-capacity lecture theatre and wash facilities for the Adamawa State University, Mubi, following its nomination as a recipient of the ASR Africa Tertiary Education Grant Scheme (TEGS) by the Board of Directors of the Abdul Samad Rabiu Africa Initiative.

Speaking at the event, Acting Vice Chancellor of the University, Dr. Stephen A. Lagu expressed appreciation to the Chairman of BUA group and ASR Africa, Abdul Samad Rabiu, for the rare philanthropy gesture towards the university.

The intervention of the Chairman, he said, would reduce the physical infrastructure deficit at their new campus and promote sanitation and hygiene in the university, adding that the choice of the 500-seat lecture theatre with the four boreholes at different locations within the campus was identified and agreed to by the relevant organs of the institution with the ASR Africa team.

Dr Ubon Udoh (MD/CEO, ASR Africa), in his remarks, congratulated the institution for qualifying for the nomination by the Board of Directors of ASR Africa, adding that the rigorous selection process which includes stringent criteria such as the quality of service delivered by the university and the pedigree of graduands from the institution at the national and international levels, proves that the university is keeping up with its vision as a leading institution of learning in the region. He encouraged the management and students to ensure proper use and maintenance of the facilities as a show of appreciation for the grant given to them.

The Tertiary Education Grant Scheme of the Abdul Samad Rabiu Africa Initiative is part of the efforts of the Chairman of BUA Group and ASR Africa, Abdul Samad Rabiu to give back to the African continent and make a lasting impact in education as a means of uplifting and restoring the dignity and lives of Africans.
