“In addition, we have opportunities in the transport sector to facilitate students to practical areas, ICT expansion, and infrastructural expansion – construction of student hostels and classrooms,” he said.

The conference was attended by high-level dignitaries from the World Health Organization (WHO), the Centre for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and government officials.
