The state governor, Abdulfatah Ahmed, made the request at Agbeyangi in Ilorin East Local Government Area during the foundation laying of a University.
Governor Ahmed in his speech urged the Saudi Arabian government to sustain its support and partnership with the university to provide functional education in the state.
“I hope that the university would boost human capital development, make Kwara a hub of tertiary education, and provide quality conventional and entrepreneurship education.
“The university would provide youths with credible conventional and faith-based education when it begins operation in order to make youths economically self-reliant,” Ahmed said.
However, He promised that the government would continue to support efforts aimed at improving access to quality education as a basic ingredient for development at all levels.
