“As a dynamic institution, this was reflected by the act of parliament in 2017 which made it possible for the institution to award the grades to be able to do other courses”, Okechukwu said.

Stating the reason for the bill, he said “What this bill essentially asks for is that the letter and spirit with which parliament established the multi disciplinary engagement of the institution is reflected in its name.

“So it’s only trying to ensure that it becomes a federal institution, not looking like it’s a monotechnic because its already canvassing and awarding degrees for those courses and they are courses that are very important for the progress of Nigeria”, he said concluding.
