About Us

The National Institute of Construction Technology and Management, Uromi (NICTM), is a premier institution dedicated to advancing the construction and management sectors in Nigeria. Established by the Federal Government of Nigeria in 2014, NICTM is a specialized monotechnic institution designed to equip students with the skills and knowledge needed to excel in the construction and information technology industries.

Our History

The establishment of NICTM was officially announced in December 2013 by then Vice-President Alhaji Namadi Sambo, in honor of Chief Tony Anenih’s 80th birthday. The Federal Government approved the institution to address the growing need for skilled professionals in construction, particularly during a time when the country faced challenges with building and bridge collapses.

In March 2014, an implementation committee identified a suitable 1.7km by 1.7km land for the institution’s permanent site, donated by His Royal Majesty Zaiki Anslem Eidenojie on behalf of the Uromi Community. Due to initial infrastructural limitations, Chief Tony Anenih generously donated his private facility, Nova Hotels Uromi, to facilitate the institution’s commencement.
