The Federal Executive Council (FEC) on Wednesday approved the establishment of the Nigerian Army University.
The university will be located in Biu, Borno State.
Minister of Education, Adamu Adamu, disclosed this to State House correspondents after the cabinet meeting presided over by Vice President Yemi Osinbajo.
Chief of Army Staff, Lt. Gen. Tukur Buratai, had earlier in March announced that the Nigerian Army will upgrade the Institute of Technology and Environmental Studies to a full fledged University of Technology and Environmental Studies.
“The university was conceived as a unique one that will be different from conventional universities in Nigeria.
“The concept is to make it a solution provider and a centre of excellence for a variety of technologically related ventures such as generation and armament production,” he said.
