The implementation involves consolidating, integrating, abolishing, and relocating various government agencies. ⁣

Zulum said:

“So I have seen the President. We pleaded that the Nigerian Army University should be converted to become a conventional university under the Federal Ministry of Education, rather than collapsing it with the Nigeria Defence Academy.

“And I’m happy to inform you that the President has directed me to write to him on this very important matter so that he will consider the request from the people.”

He added that the large population from Southern Borno‘s chances of getting a tertiary education will be in jeopardy should the Nigerian Army University be merged with NDA.
