The Muslim Community Center (MCC) has proposed the establishment of a University of History in Bwari, Abuja.
In a statement, a member of the MCC University's planning committee, Prof. Isma'il Junaidu, said the documents for the establishment of the private university had been submitted to the relevant authorities.
Prof. Junaidu said the new university had submitted all the necessary documents to the Secretary of the National Universities Commission (NUC), Prof. Abubakar Adamu Rasheed.
He said this was confirmed by the chairman of the planning committee for the new university, Prof. Ismaila A. Tsiga on July 8 in Abuja.
Professor Junaidu said the institute, during the launch of the new university, had considered its expertise in the development of education, especially in Abuja.
He also said that MCC has considered how the need to provide education at the next level of secondary schools has been aggravated with a vision in ensuring good planning.
It was reports that the decision to establish the university was made in 2012, with all due diligence and compliance with the NUC.
He said so far, MCC had purchased a 100-hectare plot of land in Bwari town with certificates of ownership of the land, while it was still violating the University's bylaws.
According to him, the MCC was established in November 1991 and is registered as a Muslim concern organization.
He went on to say that one of the main ideologies of the Center was to create a great Center for Education and Society for all Muslims.
The Board is made up of a Board of Trustees and an Executive Council that will oversee its policies and procedures and oversee its overall operations.
Committee and council members are drawn from experts in education, economics, construction, engineering, etc., all of whom are unpaid volunteers.
MCC owns a Muslim secondary school, Fou'ad Lababidi Islamic Academy, which was established in 1995 in Abuja. She has more than 1,000 students.
