- Facilities left to rot
The excitement that heralded the establishment of the Abuja University of Technology Abaji (AUTA) is beginning to wane as structures on the main campus in Abaji, a largely rural area council of the FCT, have been abandoned and are rotting away.
Earlier, a former Education Secretary of the FCTA, Senator Isa Maina, in an interview, said the university, which construction started in April, 2011, would start admitting students during the 2018/2019 academic session.
The Federal Executive Council (FEC) is said to have approved the FCTA’s request to set up the university before the Senate passed the law for its establishment in 2018.
The main campus of AUTA boasts of every infrastructure that a new university needs to start activities, but it is now covered with wild grasses.
