Army varsity to commence admission in 2018


The Chief of Army Staff, Lt.-Gen. Tukur Buratai , has assured that the Army University would commence academic activities before the end of 2018.

Buratai made this known during an interactive session with media executives in Abuja where he said that the university would run courses in the sciences and humanities and that admission would be in the ratio of 30 per cent military and 70 per cent civilian, with a civilian vice-chancellor.

The army chief said that the army had been holding discussions with the National Universities Commission, Federal Ministry of Education, Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) and the Education Trust Fund.

“The Army University is taking shape. Before the end of the year, the university will take off; courses have been identified in the sciences and humanities and we are waiting for the necessary guidelines to be released.

“The university will be civilian-driven in terms of admission and we expect Education Trust Fund to provide the necessary funding while the army make available the needed support, ’’ the army chief said.
