The Plateau State University, Bokkos, will start a Faculty of Health Sciences and a Faculty Law in 2020, the Vice-Chancellor, Yohanna Izam, has said.

Mr Izam told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Sunday in Bokkos that the arrangements had commenced for the take-off of the faculties.

He said contract for the construction of structures for the Faculty of Health Sciences had already been awarded and the contractor had commenced work.

“It is a one-year project but we are working with the contractor to see if we can achieve it in 10 months.

“We think it is feasible because we have gotten a significant level of funding for that project.

“What this implies is that in the next 10 months we will start the processes for commencing programmes in the health sciences.

“We have the plan to take off with phase one with a minimum of three departments,” he said.

The vice-chancellor said the National Universities Commission (NUC) approval, as well as accreditation and certification by relevant professional bodies, were being sought.

He stated that the establishment of the health sciences faculty was a priority to the management of the school because of its importance to the people of Plateau and Nigeria.

According to him, even within the catchment area, you find out that thousands of people apply, but only a few get admission.

The vice-chancellor also said that approval for upgrading facilities for the take-off of the Faculty of Law had been granted by the visitor of the school, the Governor of Plateau.

“The approval by His Excellency is in response to our memo to rehabilitate one of the structures that would be remodelled as a take-off structure for the faculty.

“We are also hoping that before the end of the year, the rehabilitation will be completed,” he added.

Mr Izam added that the university was also constructing a befitting complex for the Department of Mass Communication.

“Apart from the projects listed about, the construction of the new health centre, as well as mini-stadium, has also commenced,” he said.
