Zobaida lauds AIOU efforts for promoting education

QUETTA: Federal Minister for Education Zobaida Jalal has said the efforts of the Allama Iqbal Open University (AIOU) in teaching are not only a matter of pride for the university but also for the government.

Zobaida stated this in her message read out at the inaugural ceremony of the Quetta Regional Campus of the AIOU here on Tuesday.

She said printing of 1.5 million books and 11.7 million copies of allied material by its own print production unit, preparation of 2,695 radio and 530 TV programmes is an extraordinary effort.

The message said the university is known for its educational and extra-curricular activities and other programmes. It added that the manner in which the AIOU observed the years of Quaid-e-Azam, Allama Iqbal and Madar-e-Millat with great respect, had not been observed by any other university in the country.

She congratulated the vice-chancellor and others on the inauguration of the Quetta Regional Campus. She also hoped that they would also continue their efforts for promoting education.
