The University of Maiduguri (UNIMAID) Alumni Association is spending N120 million on a 200 KVA solar power project in the university, Chairman the association, Mr Baba Shettima-Kukawa, has said.

The chairman made this known in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Tuesday in Abuja.

He said that the first phase of the project, a 10 KVA solar power for the university’s main library, had been completed, while the second phase of 20 KVA for the library would be inaugurated on Sept. 7.

Shettima-Kukawa said that the initiative was to provide alternative source of energy to the university which had been without electricity for 19 months.

He said that the disruption of power supply from the national grid to Maiduguri, followed attacks on power facilities by insurgents.

The chairman said that the association was coming up with many programmes to enhance interaction among members and deepen support for the university.

Shettima-Kukawa called on members to imbibe the culture of giving back to the society, not just the institution.
