WHEN OUR SAMARU WAS FARMS AND BUSHES...

Pictures of newly completed buildings for the University of Northern Nigeria in January 1962, 8 months before its official opening on October 4, 1962.

The University of Northern Nigeria was renamed Ahmadu Bello University after its opening however the date of rebranding is not clear on either ABU's official website or on Wikipedia.

Nice. I believe Nigeria will be great again. The North and South will unite to be a formidable force that will be the admiration of other nations.

Story has it that Ahmadu Bello when he was approached for where ABU would be situated, he took them to a spot in Zaria and said, You can take all you want from this spot , all the way to Sokoto. grin

Just imagine your grandfather acquired land as big as 3 Football fields near this location back then. It would be for peanuts, almost free.

Dangote's grandfather in Kano acquired some large parcels of unwanted land back in the day. The rest is history.

Land would always be an asset.
