He notes that it is not only part of their corporate social responsibility, but their duty to provide assistance in education, medicare, charitable causes as well as ensure interfaith and intercultural dialogue among different people in the society.

This, he says, is the reason why they established UFUK Dialogue Forum in Abuja, which has to date, conducted dialogue for among different faith and cultures in the country.

Sagir says that the college is ever ready to help all those in need in any community, irrespective of their faith, tribes, or geographical locations in the country.

“This is why our attention would be geared towards providing a number of boreholes in the Southern part of the state in due course,” he said.

Sagir reveals that apart from the construction of befitting boreholes, the College equally provided over 20 scholarships to indigent, but brilliant and bright pupils from public schools going into the Junior Secondary School section in their college.

“We are conducting entrance examinations every year for all the prospective students of public schools so that if they pass, we will enroll them into our college with free scholarship,” he added.
