A US-based non-profit organisation has announced a donation of a faculty building to the new Enugu University of Education Ihe, in Awgu local government area of the state.

The specialised University is a State Government project initiated by Governor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi of Enugu State.

Construction works began on the project site of the University at Ihe, in early 2019.

The Foundation, Ihe Shikeaguma Foundation (ISF), said in a statement that the building donation was to appreciate Governor Ugwuanyi for his government's decision to site a university in Enugu West Senatorial District.

The Governor will be special guest at the Foundation's ground breaking ceremony on Saturday, 3 October 2020 to signal the commencement of construction.

"We are excited by this development because it gives the right message of support to government and to the hardworking Governor himself, especially at this time when resources to fund major projects are dwindling," says Prince Emma Denchukwu, a Board member of ISF.

Denchukwu a said the Foundation has members from all over the world, including Nigeria.

"Among ourselves, we have raised more than a quarter of what it will cost to put up the building and will rapidly complete the funding when our people see the project take off," he said.

Enugu University of Education is a signature project and legacy of the Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi administration.

The governor was at Ihe on 10 April 2019 to lay the foundation for construction of the University's main administrative building.
