The Nigerian University
Capacity Building Programme
Since the late 1990s, the CBN has expanded its involvement in community based activities beyond sporting development to include other areas of community development. In response to the general concern about the decaying infrastructure in the first generation universities, the Bank attempted to provide/improve key infrastructure under the Nigerian Universities Capacity Building Programme. Following the success of the pilot scheme, the programme has since been extended to include second generation universities. The projects carried out under this capacity building programme include the construction of administrative blocks, lecture halls, laboratories, health centres, and provision of IT and V-sat equipment.
The Bank has so far spent the sum of over
N453m on such
projects and more Universities are expected to benefit from the programme in
subsequent years. The following universities have benefited under the programme:
