Ahmadu Bello University, ABU, Zaria, has taken its promotion and advocacy to the United Arab Emirates where it showcased its Distance Learning Education Programmes.

The Director, Public Affairs Directorate of the University, Malam Auwalu Umar, said this in a statement issued on Wednesday in Zaria.

The management team while in Dubai had series of high-level meetings with Edoxi Training Institute, a strategic partner of ABU based in United Arab Emirates, the statement said.

It quoted the Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Kabiru Bala saying the ABU Distance Learning Centre which is rated as the best in Nigeria by the National Universities Commission, NUC, was the right vehicle to drive the initiative.

Mr Bala said it was all about collaboration between ABU and Edoxi Training Institute towards promoting ABU programmes in the UAE, noting that the effort had yielded results as two organisations agreed to collaborate on a number of workable areas.

“They resolved on the use of Edoxi Training Institute’s facilities for the purpose of conducting ABU Distance Learning Centre (ABUDLC) exams as well as the use of its office by ABUDLC as resource and information centre.

“Edoxi Training Institute also accepted to promote ABUDLC within UAE and Asia as a whole, in addition to identifying for ABU a number of programmes that portend huge patronage within Asia, if delivered via robust online means,” the statement read in part.

It added that it was further agreed that the institute would work to see that all identified short training courses were certified by the Knowledge and Human Development Authority (KHDA), UAE.

The statement said the team had an interaction with Nigeria’s Ambassador to the UAE, Mohammed Dansanta Rimi, in Abu Dhabi.

The vice-chancellor expressed gratitude to the Nigerian Embassy in Abu Dhabi for the support given to the university and urged that the Embassy should continue to promote its causes over there.

Responding, Mr Rimi described the initiative by ABU to promote its academic programmes through the Distance Learning Centre beyond Nigeria as laudable.

The envoy thanked the vice-chancellor and his team for the visit and pledged to continue to support the university in this direction.

Group kicks as Imansuangbon’s name disappear from Edo national delegates list

Political temper heightened in Esan South East Local Government Area of Edo state, as a social-political pressure group under the aegis of Esan South East for Justice, on Tuesday condemned the removal of Ken Imansuangbon’s name from the national delegate list describing the action as criminal and undemocratic.

Imansuangbon, had last weekend at a congress conducted at Ubiaja, the administrative headquarters of Esan South East Local Government Area, and supervised by the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, officials, won with 156 votes against his opponent Giwa Agbomherere, who scored 50 votes.

While appealing to Governor Godwin Obaseki to intervene in the matter, the group also called on INEC, the Police and the DSS to investigate and ensure that those behind the dastardly act are exposed to save the nation’s democracy.

In a statement endorsed by the coordinator of the group in Benin Imafidon Ernest, the group said that the report to disenfranchise the former PDP governorship aspirant from the delegates list is undemocratic and called on the Iyorchia Ayu and the National Working Committee, NWC of the party to call to order the state chairman of the party, Dr Tony Aziegbemi, and his cohorts.

The group also expressed shock that despite the fact that the congress was conducted in a peaceful atmosphere and the people elected their preferred representative to the forthcoming National Convention of the party and the certificate issued to the winner Imansuagbon, some dubious characters went ahead and submitted the fake list to the national leadership of the party and delisted the delegate for Esan South East.

“It is no longer news to our group that the party’s state chairman is out to do the hatchet bidding of his pay masters to the detriment of the people of his locality where he hails from. What a shame.

“We are however using the opportunity to call on the national leadership of the party, Iyorchia Ayu, to intervene quickly against this impunity. It is clear that the action of these perpetrators is fueled by greed, political gangsterism, criminal tendency and selfishness to continue to fuel crisis and division in the state PDP.

“As a group, we are drawing the attention of the leadership of the party to address this anomaly. The people of Esan East have spoken loud and clear last weekend with their votes for choice of Imansuangbon as their delegate.”

In line with the Commandant General’s vision Dr. Ahmed Abubakar Audi, to reposition the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC), the State Commandant, Emmanuel Ocheja has reiterated his administrations’ commitment to revamp the operations of the Corps in Osun.

Ocheja made this known while inspecting the construction of a drainage system being done by his administration at the Command Headquarters. He said “as we usher in the rainy season, the adverse effects of erosion on the entrance of Command headquarters at Ayepe, Ilesa road, Osogbo, has caused a lot of damage to the vehicles of the personnel of the Corps and members of the public.” This has led a number of them to using their hard-earned salaries and incomes to repair their cars on a regular basis. Hence, the need to quickly embark on the road construction.

He explained further that the development will militate the destructive effects of erosion on the road.

Speaking further, the Commandant said he has refurbished sixteen operational vehicles and one ambulance in order to enhance effective service delivery.

Ocheja said  the refurbishment will boost the morale of personnel while discharging their statutory duties, adding that the operational vehicles would  be positioned at strategic points within the state.

Ocheja stressed further that  his administration is making frantic efforts to reposition the state Command in order to deliver on the core mandates of the Corps.

The renovation of the State Command’s Public Relations office is another side attraction that cannot be overlooked as the office has been transformed with modern design that draws people’s attention.

Ocheja  emphasized that he is working towards building a strong work force that could tackle and fade out criminal elements in Osun State

He, therefore, expressed the Command’s determination in ensuring that criminals have no hiding place in the state.
