Kwali coun­cil do­nates com­put­ers to univer­sity

Daily Trust - - CITY NEWS - By Abubaar Sadiq Isah

The Chair­man of Kwali Area Coun­cil of the FCT, Mr. Ibrahim Daniel, yes­ter­day do­nated five sets of com­put­ers to Depart­ment of So­ci­ol­ogy of the Fac­ulty of So­cial Sci­ences of the Nasarawa State Univer­sity.

Ibrahim, rep­re­sented by the vice chair­man of the coun­cil, Al­haji Isah Garba Yewuti, said the ges­ture was to en­cour­age com­puter knowl­edge among stu­dents of the in­sti­tu­tion.

He noted that as an aca­demi­cian that ven­tured into pol­i­tics, he is still keen to con­trib­ute to the de­vel­op­ment of aca­demic ac­tiv­i­ties.

The chair­man said he de­cided to do­nate the com­puter to the school be­cause many in­di­genes of Kwali coun­cil are learn­ing at the univer­sity.

He said the do­na­tion was part of the pledge he made to the Depart­ment of So­ci­ol­ogy of the school when he was in­vited to at­tend an in­au­gu­ral lec­ture by the in­sti­tu­tion, adding that the coun­cil will con­tinue to lend its sup­port to the fac­ulty at all time in or­der to en­hance its smooth aca­demic ac­tiv­i­ties.

Re­spond­ing, the Dean of the Fac­ulty of So­cial Sci­ences of the Univer­sity, Prof. Andrew Za­mani, said there is a new revo­lu­tion at the univer­sity.

He said the in­sti­tu­tion is now stretch­ing its hands of fel­low­ship to its im­me­di­ate lo­cal com­mu­ni­ties even be­yond the state.

He fur­ther in­formed the coun­cil chair­man that the fac­ulty has an e-li­brary but there are no fa­cil­i­ties to make it op­er­a­tional and thanked the au­thor­i­ties of the coun­cil for the do­na­tions, promis­ing to en­sure their op­ti­mal use.
