President Bola Tinubu has approved the conversion of the Federal College of Dental Technology and Therapy in Enugu to a full-fledged University of Allied Health Sciences in a move aimed at bolstering human resources in the health and social welfare sector.  

According to the statement signed by the President’s media aide, Ajuri Ngelale, the decision underscores Tinubu’s commitment to enhancing healthcare infrastructure and capacity building across Nigeria. 

Under the presidential directive, the Federal College of Dental Technology and Therapy in Enugu will henceforth operate as the Federal University of Allied Health Sciences, Enugu, falling under the purview of the Federal Ministry of Health and Social Welfare. 

The conversion aligns with Tinubu’s broader vision, particularly as he concurrently serves as the African Union (AU) Champion for Human Resources for Health.
