The Founder of Aminu Dabo College of Health Sciences Technology, Architect Aminu Dabo, has submitted the final documents supporting the application for the establishment of the proposed Aminu Dabo University of Health Sciences, Kano, to the National Universities Commission (NUC) in Abuja.
During an event at the NUC headquarters, Mr Dabo emphasized that the documents, which include the academic brief and physical master plan, align with the basic requirements and provide state of the art facilities essential for graduating qualified health personnel to address societal needs.
According to Abdullahi Usman, Head of the Public relations and Publicity of the Institute, the idea of the private health institution stems from the successful six year journey of the two preceding health colleges, aiming to produce high-quality health and medical professionals equipped with comprehensive knowledge, skills, and values.
Accompanied by influential figures and stakeholders of the proposed university, Mr Dabo expressed hope for swift approval by the Federal Government once recommended by the commission, allowing the new institution to join the ranks of universities in the country.
He assured that once operational, the university would significantly contribute to building human capacity through qualitative education, benefiting not only the people of Kano but all Nigerians.
In his response, Dr. Chris Maiyaki, the Executive Secretary of NUC, congratulated Mr Dabo for the initiative, acknowledging its potential as a significant legacy.
Dignitaries present at the event included Dr. Aliyu Isah Huang, former Minister of Health, Alh Abba Dabo, former Presidential Aide, Alh Ahmad Rabiu Chairman Dala Inland Dry Port Nigeria, A.B. Mahmoud (SAN), and Al-Sheikh Shehu Uba Sharada Chairman Sharada Juma’at Mosque.
The occasion was attended by various professionals, friends, allies, associates, relatives, and top management staff of the two sister colleges of health owned by Mr Dabo.
