The Ahmadu Bello University, Zaria, under the leadership of Professor Ibrahim Garba in line with his vision to make ABU the leading University in Nigeria, Africa and the world has set up modalities and framework for the revival and rebuilding of a central University Creche.
The establishment of a central crèche/ Day Care centre will serve both staff and students of the University; this will give the needed support to nursing mothers to pay attention to their studies and office work.
Several nursing mothers will not have to postpone or differ schooling, as such has hindered a few from continuing schooling considering cultural and traditional norms practised in certain communities which inhibits nursing mothers from social engagements.
The Gender Policy Unit, ABU, through her coordinator Prof. Binta Abdulkarim has been instrumental in the pursuit of this innovation.
The following pictures are representations of the proposed Crèche:
