Chinese firm to employ Usmanu Danfodiyo varsity students


A Nigerian-based Chinese firm is set to recruit students of Usmanu Danfodiyo University, Sokoto, as marketing/sales officers as part of the immediate gains of the Federal Government’s Ease of Doing Business policy.
The Abuja-based firm, FABCOM Structural Ltd, manufactures coloured, stone coated and compressed steel roofing tiles as well as sheets.
Prof. Abdullahi Zuru, the University’s Vice Chancellor, told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) that the resolution to recruit the students was reached after a successful meeting between the management and the firm, led by its Deputy Managing Director, Mr Jackie Hui, in Sokoto.
Zuru said: “The Students engagement is a very happy development and will be hugely facilitated by the enabling environment provided by the Federal Government.
“This is an immediate and direct dividend of the Federal Government’s ease of doing business policy,” he said.
He said the gesture would further help to curtail unemployment, youths restiveness and capital flight.
The vice chancellor added that the move would bolster capacity building, local contents integration, technological development and rapid industrialisation of Nigeria.
“Moreover, the gesture would help to facilitate the Federal Government’s current laudable efforts to revive the economy,” he added.
He said that the firm had already held an interactive discussion with the prospective students, who would serve as the retinue of Nigerian staff of the company, when finally recruited.
“We are also going to work out modalities to ensure that the proposed work schedules would not in any way affect their study schedules,” Prof. Zuru, said.
