The bill was passed  on Wednesday after Ahmad Babba Kaita, chairman of the committee on Tertiary Education Trust Fund (TETFUND), presented a report on it .

 Kaita presenting his Committee's report on the floor of the senate in Abuja ,said the university would close the gap in knowledge of the transportation sector.

He added that  the university would create capacity and generate job opportunities for Nigerians.
