ESUT Returns to its Original Multi-Campus Structure

(Enugu, 15 May 2019).

The Enugu State Executive Council has voted to
return the
Enugu State University of Technology (ESUT) to
its original multi-campus structure as
established by the Chief Jim Ifeanyichukwu
Nwobodo administration in 1980.

Accordingly, three schools originally proposed
for Enugu North Senatorial Zone –
faculties of Medical Sciences, Agriculture, and
Social Sciences – will be returned
to the Zone, while the ESUT Faculty of
Education will relocate to Enugu West, to be
domiciled at the new University of Education,
Ihe in Awgu Local Government.

Governor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi who chaired the
meeting, noted that although the site for Enugu
North campus of ESUT is yet to be determined,
the Faculty of Medical Sciences will take
advantage of the 400-bed specialist hospital
currently under constructed at Igboano to
serve as teaching facility for medical students.
Council noted that relocating the school of
medical sciences will rapidly decongest and
take the pressure off the Enugu Park Lane
Hospital which has been
struggling for expansion space since its
conversion to a Teaching Hospital.

The sum of N1.5billion was approved in the
2019 State Budget for construction of
key facilities at Igboano Specialist Hospital/
ESUT Teaching Hospital, including
construction of access road, external works
(fencing and landscaping), as well as
the provision of water and electricity.
Council however voted to increase the budget
to N2billion, following the decision on multi-
campus structure for ESUT and additional
facilities.

For Enugu West Zone, in addition to the
ultramodern administrative building which
is already under construction at the University
site in Ihe, Council also voted to
construct an access road to the University.

The Council’s decisions followed a proposal to
restructure the Enugu State
University so that various specialist learning
centres can be established for each
Senatorial Zone – Science, Engineering &
Technology at Agbani (East), Education
at Ihe (West), and Medical Sciences at Igboano
(North).

These specialist centres will not only bring
tertiary education closer to the grassroots but
will facilitate rapid socio-economic
development of all zones in Enugu State.
