FUWUKARI Admission Requirements And Courses Offered 2024

FUWUKARI Admission Requirements And Courses Offered – In a bid to address the then unequal access to qualitative tertiary education in Nigeria (that was displayed by the fact that not every state in Nigeria had the presence of a Federal University), the Government of Nigeria had decided to erect some Federal Universities where none had previously existed.

This was, however after, the Federal Minister of State, Education had submitted a memorandum to the Federal Executive Council, at its 39th meeting which took place on Wednesday, 10th November 2010. 

The memorandum had requested the Federal Government, to create 44 additional Federal Universities in order to enforce the Government’s drive at improving the overall level of equitable access to qualitative education throughout Nigeria.

Subsequently, the Federal Executive Council duly approved the opening of twelve new Universities across the country stating equity and ease of access as its reasons.

The then State Government of Taraba State had donated the then  Wukari Campus of the Taraba State Polytechnic (which housed the School of Administration and Business Studies) to the Federal Government to enable the commencement of the Federal University of Wukari in Taraba State.

However, on Monday, 14th March 2011, the formal introduction of the University’s maiden Vice-Chancellor (Prof O. Geoffrey Okogbaa) to the then Governor of Taraba (Pharm Saidu Danfulani Danbaba) State took place at the Government House in Jalingo. 

The Royal Father had assured the Vice Chancellor of the hundred percent cooperation of the entire Wukari Community concerning the successful opening and growth of the University.

A positively aggressive workforce, constant renovation and upgrade of facilities inherited from the former Polytechnic Campus, erection of added structures, and purchase, and installation of necessary infrastructure and fittings had helped the University usher its premier batch of Students to the University’s Academic Programmes in September 2011.

Although FUWUKARI is still a relatively new University, it has continued to grow steadily in both learning and Character molding.
