Vice Chancellor of the Ambrose Alli University (AAU), Ekpoma, Prof. Ignatius Onimawo, has declared that his dream of changing the face of the institution during his tenure was being realized.
The VC, who pointed out that over 33 projects have been initiated with many already completed in the last three years by his administration, made the declaration on Wednesday while addressing pressmen in a media briefing at Ekpoma.
Onimawo revealed that the menace of cultism has also been rooted from the institution as it can no longer be found inside the university campus, adding that his three years administration in the institution has brought some innovations to make the university the best state university in Nigeria.
“We have started the process of realizing that vision of becoming the best state university and one of the first ten universities in the country.
“The feat is being made possible with the N3 billion High Impact Intervention Fund from Tertiary Education Fund (TETFund), N740 million NEEDS Assessment Fund, State Government subversion and other intervention funds.
“Infrastructurally, we have changed the face of AAU and we are still working to build several projects, including Faculty of Education and Management Science, Mass Communication Department, Faculty of Physical Science, among others,” the VC stated.
On the issue of cultism, the VC told journalists that his administration was doing so much in the school, adding that, “some times in the past, the issue of cultism was very high but I can tell you that such incident is in the past”.
