By Our correspondent

High-powered delegation of the National Universities Commission (NUC) has visited the yet to be Unveiled Transatlantic Medicine and Heath Science University in Anambra being spearheaded by popular US-based medical doctor and philanthropist, Dr. Godwin Maduka.

The NUC team led by the Executive Secretary, Mr. Chris Maiyaki expressed satisfaction with the quality of structure put in place expected to house the medical university.

The multi-billion naira investment is believed to be part of his efforts to redirect part of his business interests back to Nigeria from US where he has six hospitals and empower experts locally, especially with the growing brain drain in the industry.

The NUC inspection team was accorded befitting reception by the jubilant community.

Maiyaki applauded Maduka for his decision to float such a gigantic project, expressing the readiness of the university regulator to offer the needed support in ensuring that more opportunities are available for human capital development in the country.

According to the NUC Executive Secretary, with a project of this nature, Nigeria will groom the needed manpower that will provide medical services to the teeming populace.

Among the structures housing the proposed university is a 17-storey building, reputed to be the tallest building in the South East and South South.

Also contained in the proposed university are residences for the Principal Officers – VC, Bursar, Registra, Librarian, lecture theatre, administratives, hostel and other blocks.

Maduka in his remarks said the project has become necessary in view of the ‘japa’ syndrome that has hit the medical industry. He assured that the university will be fully functional in September with the admissions of students and other academic activities.

The medical institution will house among others, pharmacy, dental, nursing, radiology technology and other allied health and research students.

A team from Project Implementation Committee was also at the inspection tour.
