FUT Minna donates books to UNIJOS

Federal University of Technology (FUT) Minna, has donated 148 titles with 458 volumes of books to the University of Jos which library was gutted by fire late last year.

Vice Chancellor of FUT, Prof Musbau Akanji, said the books were donated because the colossal loss of books and equipment in UniJos was a national calamity.

“A library is a centre of civilisation of all cultures because it is a custodian of knowledge. When a library is burnt, it is like a culture is destroyed. It is not easy to re-build a lost library,” the VC noted.

Responding, the Vice Chancellor of UniJos, Prof. Seddi Sebastian Maimako, applauded FUT Minna for coming to the aid of the institution, adding that the university was encouraged by the kind gesture.

Prof. Maimako, who was represented by the University Librarian, Dr. Stephen Akintunde, assured FUT Minna that the books would be properly channeled and classified for the use of the students.

Prof. Maimako further revealed that the university library was host to six faculties, stating that the institution lost over 60 per cent of its books and equipment to the fire.

He disclosed that the Federal Government, through the Tertiary Education Trust Fund (TETFund), approved N729 million for the renovation of the library and that construction work would soon commence after the bidding process.
If Nigerian campuses continue like this, we fit now dey yarn about United Nigeria… Gbosa for FUT Minna jare
