Former Senate President, Dr. Abubakar Bukola Saraki has awarded full scholarships for four years to 100 students of Muhammadu Kamaluddin University, Ilorin, Kwara State.

Saraki also officially commissioned a private university owned by Ansar-ul-Islami Society of Nigeria on Saturday, donating projects worth millions of naira towards the infrastructural development of the institution.

According to a statement by the Spokesperson for Local Affairs, Abdulganiyu Abdulkadir, 140 million naira will be donated to 4-year full scholarships for 100 student beneficiaries, while another 26 million naira will be donated to various schools within the university. Donations were made to provide facilities.

“As the true son of Mr. Baba Adini of the Ansarul Islamic Society of Nigeria and Mr. Waziri Ngeri of the Emirate of Ilorin, this project is personal to me.

“This commission is a great project for every son and daughter of the Emirate and is important not only for the legacy of Sheikh Kamalud Deen, but also for what we can do as an Ilorin Emirate society,” Saraki he said.

Furthermore, he argued that: “This is a project for society and that is why it is our project. That is why I have played my role since its inception in 2005 until today.”

The university was founded by the late Sheikh Muhammad Kamalud Deen Al-Adabi, the first Grand Mufti of Ilorin and founder of the Ansarul Islamic Society of Nigeria.
