We are proud to deliver this project as one of our corporate social responsibilities. Water is life and we all know that when you have good source of water, you have good source of life. We are pleased to be intervening in some parts of the development of this institution. SAPETRO will continue to do the best to support the development of this university.The Vice-Chancellor, Prof Muhammad Mainoma, said the reservoir would solve the water challenge facing the school. Anybody who gives you water has given you a life. With this intervention by SAPETRO, which constructed and donated a one million litre water reservoir, the water problem in the university has now been solved. We thank the management of SAPETRO for this contribution, he said.Students of the Department of Theatre and Cultural Studies entertained the guests with cultural performance.While giving vote of thanks, the Registrar, Alhaji Dalhatu Mamman, said: We do not have enough words to use in showing our gratitude to General Danjuma for this wonderful and life-touching project. His contributions to the development of this university have always been remarkable. As we all know, the university clinic, a modern and well-equipped healthcare centre was constructed and donated by General Danjuma. We pray that he will continue to be our partner in progress. Your wealth means nothing until you use such wealth to touch the lives of people in the society.A plaque of honour was presented to Senator Danjuma by the VC on behalf of the university community to show appreciation for the intervention project.It should be recalled that the university was shut down for months in 2013, following a violent protest over water shortage on campus.The post Danjuma donates water reservoir to varsity appeared first on The Nation.]]> Click here to read full news..
