By Amos Tauna

Nigeria’s Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, has inaugurated Broadcasting building by Bayero University, Kano, praising elevation of Mass Communication to a level of a faculty through the provision of the necessary infrastructure.

“They (BUK) have elevated Mass Communication to a level of a Faculty but they did not just do so by pronouncement. They have done so by providing the necessary infrastructure that will make it possible,” he said.

Speaking while inaugurating some projects at the new site of the University, the minister commended the authorities of the Bayero University, Kano for elevating the instruction’s Mass Communication department to a faculty.

“I think what is clear now is that the BUK is actually committed and they want to be the foremost in Nigeria and even in Africa in the area of Mass Communication,” he said.

Lai Mohammed observed that the projects that were inaugurated demonstrated the commitment and readiness of BUK to raise the crop of professionals who would understand the dynamics of Mass Communication.

“We have seen the various studios, we have seen the Performing Theatre, we have seen the Academic Offices, we have seen the provision for the Post Graduate Students. So what BUK is actually telling us is that Mass Communication is too big to be a department and they are blazing the trail in making it a Faculty,” he noted.

The projects inaugurated by the Minister are the complex of the Faculty of Mass Communication, which has 50 offices, and the Broadcasting Complex, which houses the audio-visual studios, a computer laboratory and other facilities.

Mohammed also accompanied the former Minister of Petroleum, Prof. Jibril Aminu, to commission the 150-seat performing Arts Theatre also at the new site of the university.
