Unibadan Business School ready soon - Dangote

The foremost entrepreneur in Africa, Alhaji Aliko Dangote has assured that the N250 million University of Ibadan Business School being constructed by him would soon be ready for commissioning, reports ITRealms.

Alsi, the business mogul who is constructing same type of project in the Bayero University Kano (BUK) said the structure will be ready for hand over to the university management anytime from now.

The UI project being undertaken by the Aliko Dangote Foundation (http://Dangote.com) was sequel to a pledge made by the business mogul last year during the convocation ceremony by the university when he was conferred honorary doctorate degree along with some other eminent Nigerians.

The University of Ibadan management later requested that the pledged funds be used to construct the building complex within the premises of the Business School under Professor Nike Oshofisan as the Director.

The University management has equally decided that the building, when completed, will be named ‘Aliko Dangote Complex’.

The Chief Executive of the Aliko Dangote Foundation, Zouera Youssoufou, explained that all efforts are being geared towards timely completion of the project saying “construction is currently on-going and the project will be delivered to the University in February 2018.”

This venture is part of a N2 billion investment by the Aliko Dangote Foundation, across various institutions, in support of Tertiary education in Nigeria.

Mrs. Youssoufou stated that the projects are in line with the Foundation’s mission to enhance opportunities for social change through strategic investments that improve health and wellbeing, promote quality education, and broaden economic empowerment opportunities.

On the Bayero Business School, the Foundation boss explained that on commencement, the business school will be only the third accredited business school in the country and the first in the North, others being University of Lagos Business School and University of Ibadan Business School.

She disclosed that the UI and BUK projects are complementary to the Foundation’s other tertiary education support projects such as the Ahmadu Bello University, Zaria “where we are currently constructing 10 units of students’ dormitories and we expect that it would be ready by March.


“We have constructed and delivered students’ dormitories in this University, Crescent University, Abeokuta. We have constructed and delivered units of students’ dormitories and provided power generating set to Kano University of Science & Technology, Wudil and now we are in University of Ibadan.”
