22 Nigerian universities and institutions receive N5.5 billion from ASR Africa for the construction of infrastructure

As part of its ASR Africa Tertiary Education Grants Scheme, the Abdul Samad Rabiu Africa Initiative (ASR Africa) today announced a N5.5 billion gift of 250 million Naira to 22 universities and other institutions of higher learning in Nigeria (TEGS).

The number of tertiary education institutions in Nigeria that are now gaining access to various ASR Africa education projects will rise to 30. Approximately 8 institutions had benefited from the ASR Africa TEGS Scheme prior to this announcement, and several of the projects are almost finished.

“At ASR Africa, we believe in Africa’s capacity to leapfrog the development divide through the SDGs,” stated Abdul Samad Rabiu, Chairman of ASR Africa and BUA Group. One way we may do it is by making wise, high-quality educational investments. This is why ASR Africa’s interventions in Nigeria and Africa continue to place a strong emphasis on education, and our investments in tertiary institution infrastructure are paying off.

The 22 beneficiary universities for the 5.5 billion Naira ASR Africa Tertiary Education Grants were picked throughout Nigeria based on carefully established criteria, according to Ubon Udoh, Managing Director of ASR Africa, who made the announcement about the chosen institutions. The selection of projects and the creation of mutual accountability frameworks with the relevant universities would be the next steps in the grants system, according to Udoh. We anticipate that this phase will start soon.

Federal University of Technology Owerri, Federal University of Petroleum Resources Effurun, Nigerian Law School (Lagos), University of Uyo, University of Lagos, University of Jos, Federal College of Education Technology, Gusau, Federal University Lokoja, Nasarawa State University, University of Port Harcourt, and Federal University of T are among the select institutions that are comprised of Federal, State, and Privately owned universities.
