Obaseki said: “As I speak to you today, I have signed an MOU with a company in Malaysia  to bring a University of Innovation to Benin city. We are in discussion with one of the best schools in Malaysia and we have signed an MOU with them.

“The technology hub in ICE has been given to them as they are bringing a University of Innovation to Benin city to benefit our people.
