Boko Haram Will Achieve Its Objectives If Army Varsity Is Scrapped


The governor of Borno State, Babagana Zulum, has reportedly asked President Bola Ahmed Tinubu to reevaluate the decision to combine the Nigerian Defense Academy (NDA) and the Army University at Biu, Borno State.


Based on the suggestion of the Steve Oronsaye report, the Federal Government intends to combine the two institutions in order to lower the cost of government. Zulum expressed fear that closing the university might unintentionally advance the goals of Boko Haram, given the importance of education in the area where the group is opposed.


He urged President Tinubu to preserve the university’s status, either as an Army university or as a conventional university under the Federal Ministry of Education.


Zulum emphasized the importance of education, especially in a region plagued by a decade-long crisis, and highlighted the significant number of students enrolled in the institution.


Additionally, Zulum advocated for the retention of the National Center for Agricultural Mechanisation in Ilorin, stressing its crucial role in promoting food security through sustainable agriculture. He suggested a technical committee be formed to review these decisions and enhance their effectiveness.
