Nile University hosted a delegation from the Bureau of International Narcotics and Law Enforcement Affairs (INL), United States of America in light of its participation in the “Reform Kuje” project, on May 16, 2019. The Reform Kuje project, funded by the INL, is aimed at significantly reducing the number of pre-trial detainees in Kuje prison. As one of the partner Universities of the INL-led project (the other two partner institutions are Baze University and the University of Abuja), the visit was an opportunity for the agency’s team to acquaint themselves with the institution while reiterating the objectives of the partnership. During the visit, Prof. Steve Adeshina (DVC Admin.), representing the Vice-Chancellor, assured the US delegation of Nile University’s commitment to fulfilling its obligations in the partnership. The visitors were also given a tour of the Law Faculty’s moot court.
The Nile staff that were on hand to welcome the guests included Prof. Shehu Abdullahi Zuru (Dean, Faculty of Law), Dr. Fatima Alkali (Deputy Dean, Faculty of Law), Mr. Ibrahim Mukhtar (Law Clinic Coordinator), to name a few.
