3. Abubakar Tafawa Balewa University is a university of technology
Abubakar Tafawa Balewa University (ATBU), is a federal university of technology located in Bauchi, northern Nigeria. Many Nigerians do not know this because technology is no longer in the name. It was established in 1980 as Federal University of Technology, Bauchi, Nigeria.
On 1 October 1984, the University was merged with Ahmadu Bello University Zaria, Nigeria with a subsequent change of its name to Abubakar Tafawa Balewa College, Ahmadu Bello University, Bauchi Campus.
The University regained its autonomous status in 1988 following a general demerger of such institutions. This was followed by a subsequent change of its name to Abubakar Tafawa Balewa University, Bauchi. (Excerpts: WikiPedia.org)
