Encouraged by the commitment of professor Lilian Salami to bequeath a legacy of world class projects and the on- going beautification of the University campuses, the Edo State Government, led by Governor Godwin Obaseki, has been rehabilitating the intra-campus roads as part of the State Government’s free-will contribution to the Uniben success story.
