Yobe State University
The noble idea of establishing a state university in Damaturu was recommended to the state government by the committee on a blueprint for the educational development of Yobe state, its sub-committee on higher education submitted the report stating the desirability for a university in Yobe.
Following the NUC’s encouragement of state and private organization to establish viable universities and the rapid growth of post-primary and tertiary institutions in the state became obvious that a large number of potential university candidates would emerge seeking admission into the university in Yobe. The state under the leadership of his Excellency governor Bukar Abba Ibrahim decided to establish a university named Bukar Abba Ibrahim University and immediately constituted the planning committee with Professor Muhammad Nur Alkali as Chairman. The committee started to plan the take-off of the university in January 2007.
