The request for the supplementary budget was forwarded by Gov. Mukhtar Yero to the legislature.
The governor had said that the N2.07 billion would be secured from the Tertiary Education Trust Fund.
“The amount would be spent on infrastructure development aimed at improving facilities for conducive teaching, research and learning.”
The house, at its sitting presided by the Deputy Speaker, Mr Peter Adamu, unanimously approved the request.
Yusuf said the amount would also cover research farms, library materials and the development of a teaching hospital. (NAN)
