Tukur noted that a lot of efforts and resources are being deployed in the areas of research, publications, and innovations geared to improve the university’s competitiveness and ranking despite being in a far plunged area of the country in the nearest future.

He noted that to achieve that, the university is building a lot of infrastructure and also ensuring frugal use of its resources to built capacity of staff and provide a convivial atmosphere.
