WHEN OUR SAMARU WAS FARMS AND BUSHES...

Pictures of newly completed buildings for the University of Northern Nigeria in January 1962, 8 months before its official opening on October 4, 1962.

The University of Northern Nigeria was renamed Ahmadu Bello University after its opening however the date of rebranding is not clear on either ABU's official website or on Wikipedia.
