He advised Local Governments, wealthy individuals and philanthropists to invest in the university by building hostels, hotels or motels that could enable them to generate revenue.
“Besides our students and staff, who are staying outside the university campus, our guests, who come to attend our functions can be accommodated there.
“I am ready to give land to any developer, especially the LGs, to build their hostels that will be named after the councils, which will continue to generate funds for them,’’ he assured.
