The National Universities Commission (NUC) has approved the establishment of new university in Enugu State with the name Enugu State University of Medical and Applied Sciences, Igbo-Ano, Enugu State.

Executive Secretary of NUC, Prof. Abubakar Rasheed, presented letter of recognition of the new university to the State Governor, Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi, during a visit to the Commission, on Thursday, in Abuja.

Prof. Rasheed commended the Governor for his passion for the development of the education sector, disclosing that about four new private universities would soon spring up in Enugu State, as the Commission had already begun the process of approving their establishment.

The Governor, in his response, said the concept of the University of Medical and Applied Sciences was borne of the desire of the State government to improve the medical manpower in the state and beyond.

Gov. Ugwuanyi noted that annually, thousands of students apply to study medicine in public institutions in Nigeria, but only few are privileged to secure admission, not because they are unqualified, academically and otherwise, but because of insufficient space. This is the gap we want to bridge.

He appreciated the NUC management for the speedy consideration of the documents submitted for approval and assured them of maximum cooperation and compliance with the guidelines of university operations in Nigeria.
