Federal University, Dutsin-ma (FUDMA), Katsina State is planning to begin admitting of candidates for medicine and other medical courses in 2021.
This was disclosed to newsmen in Dutsin-ma by the new Vice Chancellor of the university, Prof. Amarya’u Bichi, shortly after assuming office.
The vice chancellor also said that plans were under way to establish Faculties of Engineering, Law and Agriculture in the institution.
Prof Bichi said the Federal Government under the leadership of President Muhammadu Buhari has approved the sum of N2 billion for the establishment of a medical school at the university.
He also said that the building of the medical school had commenced and would be completed within four months
He therefore appealed to the federal government to provide additional funds for the institution to build its teaching hospital, where the students would do practical and internships.
Bichi, who doubled as the traditional title of “Wazirin Malaman Katsina” and acted as vice chancellor between 2017 and 2019, pledged to carry everybody along in the growth and development of the university.
“I want the academic and non-academic staff members to cooperate and work together for our own interests and that of the university.
“As for me, I don’t think anybody had offended me during my tenure as acting vice chancellor twice.
“However, let me use this opportunity to appeal to those who I might have offended and not known to me to please forgive me,” he said.
Bichi thanked the Minister of Education, Adamu Adamu, for recommending him to President Muhammadu Buhari for appointment as the university’s vice chancellor.
