Adwa Pan Africa University awaits completion

The completed design and the full cost of the of Adwa Pan Africa University have not been finalized yet despite the fact that PM Hailemariam Desalegn and Uganda’s President Yoweri Museveni laid the foundation nine months ago.
The Tigray Administration gave 150 hectares of land for the school but some houses in the given area needed to be relocated to begin the construction.
The committee made a temporary design after getting feedback from religious leaders, historians, foreign and local scholars, politicians and other concerned bodies.
The draft design which was shown at a meeting in the presence of Hailemariam Desalegn on January 15 at Sheraton Addis Hotel included a building for Natural and Social Studies including Pan Africa studies and a wall which has a picture of patriots in the Adwa war, and nine arch shapes which symbolize the nine regions of the country .
Betew Belay who is head of the committee working to build the university said they will have an international conference in a few months to obtain valuable feedback from local and foreign stakeholders. 
“We sincerely thank Prime Minister Hailemariam Desalegn for his commitment to helping us build the university and we are tirelessly working to involve stakeholders in the project and we will try our best to start the construction after we have completed the necessary steps.”
The PM has pledged 200 million birrs from the government. He says the university will be effective on a global scale.
