FG converts University of Health Sciences in Benue to college

Written By Idoma Television on Wednesday, December 16, 2015 | 8:22:00 AM

THE Vice Chancellor, Federal University of Agriculture, Makurdi, Prof. Emmanuel Kucha, has said that federal government has reverted the Federal University of Health Sciences approved by immediate past administration in Otukpo, Benue State to a college of medicine at the University of Agriculture, Makurdi (UAM).

Former president Goodluck Jonathan had approved the University of Sciences in Otukpo along with the upgrade of four Colleges of Education on the eve of his exit.

Prior to the approval, UAM was earlier granted the license to run the college of medicine with its teaching hospital located in Otukpo.

But the VC explained that Federal Government had reversed the previous administration’s decision to upgrade it to a university of Health Sciences independent of UAM.
Kucha however said that the take off of the college has been put on hold pending the availability of funds.
