The Tertiary Education Trust Fund (TETFUND) has donated a 1,000 capacity twin lecture theatre to the Federal Polytechnic Bida.
According to the Rector of the institution, Dr Abubakar Dzukogi, who made this known on Tuesday, the trust fund spent about N181 million on the construction of lecture theatre for the polytechnic.
Dzukogi said the theatre, which had already been commissioned, has all the required facilities, including 36 offices for lecturers.
He explained that the project had greatly complemented the effort of the institution in providing conducive learning atmosphere for students.
The rector said that the institution had also taken measures to ensure that all projects executed by TETFUND were in line with contract specifications.
He said that the Department of Business Studies had been directed to ensure proper utilisation of all facilities at the theatre.
The rector, however, called on students to take advantage of the improved learning facilities by dedicating themselves to excellence in their academic pursuits. (NAN)
