“Also soon, both KWASU Radio and KWASU Television stations would go on air. One year from today, our campus would grow far beyond expectations of many! This is a blessing to our University despite the difficult financial condition of our dear country,” the Vice-Chancellor said.
As a way of ensuring sustainable Internally-Generated Revenue (IGR) for the University, Prof. Na’Allah said KWASU is setting up a Bureau de Change in Ilorin, the state capital, in addition to the Micro Finance Bank billed to take off on campus in August, 2015.
“We plan for a lot more KWASU businesses on campus: bread baking, water making (bottled, etc.), block making, bookshop, etc., from where KWASU hopes to generate wealth for the continued growth of our University,” he added.
