Jibril Attahiru paid him a courtesy call.
The Vice-Chancellor commended the Federal University of 
Technology, Minna for its outstanding gesture of solidarity in the

camaraderie. He noted that the value of true friends are found when 
you are in need and assured the team that the books presented

resources of the University was burnt down during the inferno

burnt Library in Unijos was a colossal loss not only to Unijos, but to 
Nigeria as a whole. He described the Library as the custodian of the 
culture of every University, since the historical experience and 
values of the system are recorded in books, journals, magazines 
and other library materials.

rebuild the burnt Unijos Library and recalled that four (4) Staff of

subjects and a letter signed by the Vice-Chancellor of FUT Minna, 
Professor Musbau Adewumi Akanji.
