Aug. 22, 2011 – Usman Dan Fodio University, Sokoto, has begun the building of a 50-room hotel that would cost the institution about N 321 million, Professor Riskuwa Shehu said on Sunday.
Shehu, the vice Chancellor of the institution, said the hotel would have 42 double rooms and eight suites, adding that it had reached 80 per cent completion.
He said the hotel, located in Abuja, will help the institution diversify its source of revenue.
“The major challenge for any university in Nigeria is the desire to achieve high quality with limited resources,” he said. “That is why we have to always explore more ways to boost our internally revenue-generation capacities.”(daily times)
