A former Governor of Imo state, Senator Rochas Okorocha, has promised to establish an Islamic University within the Daura Emirate.
This is in a show of appreciation for all the benevolence he enjoys from Katsina State.
Daura is the country home of President Muhammadu Buhari.
Okorocha’s decision was revealed by Dr. Isa Halidu, who stood in gap for the former governor at an event organized by ‘Compare and Contrast Youths Initiatives’ in Daura Katsina State on Saturday.
“I’m going to give a gift, perhaps, that would not be forgotten.
“I will build in not too long a time, an Islamic university with modern facilities under Rochas Okoracha’s Foundation and it will be commissioned by myself in Daura town.”
According to Dr Isah, every student of the proposed institution would enjoy free feeding, accommodation and constant water supply while studying in the school.
The Secretary to the State Government, Dr. Mustapha Inuwa, who represented Governor Aminu Bello Masari at the occasion applauded Sen. Rochas for the decision to establish the university in the state.
