”Our staff wrote proposals which were accepted by the Foundation; this university has three projects sponsored by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation to enhance learning,” he said.

Dr. Ibrahim Mohammed , the team leader of West Africa Virus Epidemiology (WAVE), in his remarks, said that one project focused on building capacity for the control of cassava virus.

“Aside the control of cassava virus in northern Nigeria, another research focused on the control of Yambedna virus, with another centred on controlling viruses in some root and tuber crops,” he said. (NAN).
