    In a bid to provide sustainable, impact-based, homegrown solutions to developmental issues affecting health, education and social development within Africa, Abdul Samad Rabiu Africa Initiative (ASR Africa) has given a grant of N250 million for the construction of four classroom blocks at the University of Uyo, Akwa Ibom State.

    This was made known, yesterday, during the groundbreaking ceremony at the permanent site of the University Uyo.

    The donation forms part of a grant given to the university through ASR Africa’s Tertiary Education Grants Scheme (TEGS), which was drawn from ASR Africa’s $100 million fund for social development and renewal.

    Performing the groundbreaking ceremony, the Managing Director/Chief Executive Officer (MD/CEO) of ASR Africa, Dr Ubon Udoh, said that the gesture comes from the Chairman of BUA Group, Abdul Samad Rabiu’s passion for supporting quality education, as well as a conducive environment for learning within the tertiary education system in Nigeria and Africa.
    Udoh said that the classroom blocks will be completed within six months from the commencement of construction, adding that upon completion four different lectures can be going on simultaneously at the venue.
