“I am encouraged by the actions of the president in promptly signing this bill into law. This will also serve as an impetus to me and many lawmakers in sponsoring quality bills.

“The signing into law of this bill is a clear indication that era whereby Bill’s were left unattended after being passed by the National Assembly,” he stated.

The Deputy Speaker further noted that Yobe being one of educationally disadvantaged states would benefit immensely from the establishment of the university.

He urged indigenes of the state to take advantage of the university and develop more interest in the pursuit of education, ” which is indispensable in the development of any society”

The Federal University, Gashua is one of the nine universities established by the administration of former President Goodluck Jonathan in 2014, but without enabling legislation.
