Management of Federal University of Technology, Minna, has disclosed that it plans to build 8 blocks of female hostels in the school.

He believed that once this project is completed, more students can begin living on campus.

Akanji added that he hopes the construction would be completed by the end of the 2015/2016 academic session, stating that in selecting the project and the contractor, due process was followeed.

He urged the contractors to adhere strictly to specifications and time as contained in the drawing plans and contract agreement and urged the Physical Planning and Development Unit (PPDU) and Works and Maintenance Department to work as a team to monitor the project to ensure standard.
