UNIMAID to construct N64 billion fence

It has been confirmed that the federal government has started building a fence at University of Maiduguri that was valued at sixty four billion Naira (N64b). When the news came out Nigerians didn’t believe it was possible. 

Chairman, Academic Staff Union of Universities in UNIMAID, Dr Dani Mamman, who stated these in an interview with The PUNCH, said only the western and southern parts of UNIMAID campus were initially fenced.

He said, “The UNIMAID perimeter fence is still being constructed. The Federal Government approved N64 bn for the construction of 27.3-kilometre perimeter fence for UNIMAID. That place is very porous.

“The ASUU UNIMAID wrote to the Minister of Education through the ASUU president after an explosion during which we lost a professor and seven other staff.”

Many Nigerians see it as inflated contract which is the norm with Nigeria and a waste of money at a time when the FG says there is no money. Some people said the money should be invested inside the University which is overcrowded by students, with terrible hygiene problem.
