Ex Imo State Governor Sets To Build A University in Buhari's Hometown
One of the former governors of Imo State who is now one of the Senators representing the states at the upper chamber; Senator Rochas Okorocha, has promised to build an Islamic University in Daura, President Muhammadu Buhari’s hometown.
Mr Okorocha, a senator and chieftain of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), said the Rochas Okorocha Foundation would build the university.
The former governor was recently conferred with the traditional title of Maga Alherin Kasar Hausa by the Emir of Daura, Umar Faruk.
Isa Halidu, who represented Mr Okorocha at an event in Daura on Saturday, said students would enjoy free tuition and accommodation at the university.
“Because the Emir of Daura made me a traditional titleholder, I am going to give a gift, perhaps, that would never be forgotten. I will build an Islamic university with modern facilities under Rochas Okorocha Foundation and to be commissioned by myself in Daura town,” he said.
He said this is because the emirate and Katsina State, in general, had shown him tremendous affection.
Mr Okorocha noted that his Foundation has built schools and undertaken many developmental projects in other states, hence paying back Daura town for what President Buhari had done for Nigeria.
