Aliko Dangote Foundation To Build N200b University In Abuja

Nigerian mega-entrepreneur cum billionaire, Alhaji Aliko Dango, who owns the Dangote Group, which has interests in diverse commodities, has earmarked billions of Naira to establish new university in the country. 

A former Executive Secretary of the National Universities Commission (NUC), Julius Okojie, has announced on Wednesday that multi-billionaire businessman and founder of Dangote Foundation, Aliko Dangote, has set aside N200 billion to establish a world-class university in Abuja.

According to Premium Times, Okojie, who is the chairman of the technical team for the establishment of the university, said the foundation intends to drive technology and research in stimulating economic growth, adding that the proposed university is meant to be technology-driven and asked for the cooperation and support of the NUC towards the realisation of the goal.

A National Open University of Nigeria, NOUN, publication, the team, accompanied by the Chief Executive Officer, CEO of the foundation, Zouera Yousouffou, disclosed that Dangote’s desire was to float a unique university of technology with all the necessary infrastructure and best faculty members from across the globe.

Rasheed, who applauded the bold step, promised to offer all the needed assistance for the success of the project. He, however, advised the team to reconsider its plan of establishing a university of technology to ‘a conventional university running all programmes but with specialty in the area of technology.’

The executive secretary, who underscored the advantages of the conventional university over the special one, said with the countless impacts on society by the business mogul, the project would be a success.

In her remarks, Mrs. Yousouffou said the Dangote foundation was ready to make the dream a reality with the sum of N200 billion already earmarked for the project, adding that the land was purchased and preliminary measures were in place for the headquarters of the university at the nation’s capital city of Abuja.


  1. Very good of you sir.

    Heavy rain here

    *Larry was here*

    1. Dangote is most likely the most corrupt Nigerian. He's worse than IBB,OBJ and Diezani put together.

  2. Hope the poor masses will be able to afford it? Nice concept.

  3. Hmmmm.....this man sha

  4. Enter your comment...Hmmm oga Dangote! No Philanthropic activities from you,only things geared towards profit -making.
    Well, your money ,your life ,your choice I guess.

    1. Are "those things geared into making profit" not creating job opportunities and reducing unemployment??

      How did you come to the conclusion "no philanthropic activities"?? Oooops, sorry, i forgot we are in a "show-off" time where all "our activities should me announced to social media...

      Thank God you've said it all "his money, his life, his choice"

  5. Does he ever do anything outside Lagos and the North?Or are those the only places where his products are consumed?
    Just stating the obvious.

  6. Another case of miss focused spending.
    Do we need more schools in this country?
    Please we need jobs,jobs and more jobs.
    Everywhere is hotels and schools. We are tired.
    Please Sir, you are doing very well for this nation. But please we'll rather have you invest that fund in creating more industries so we can have jobs to do.

  7. A praying man will move nations. A praying man who holds on to God doesn't become rich- he becomes wealthy (he would experiences, people who honours him, and Yes, money). A praying man is God's own tool for major surprises. A praying man moves God, shakes nations, re-shapes destinies. Without sentiment, I would ask myself - what would God chose in this situation? Definitely, a praying man. Cheers‎
