Members of Esan Association of California, USA, paid a courtesy visit to the Vice-Chancellor Prof. Ignatius A. Onimawo and the Management Team of Ambrose Alli University Ekpoma on Tuesday, 15th January, 2019, at the Vice-Chancellor’s Conference room.

Addressing the Vice-Chancellor, the President of the Association, Mercy Elimihele, expressed joy as being received by the Vice-Chancellor at such short notice.  She said that the Esan Association in South California, which is a group of more than 50 Esan people,  have the interest of  Esanland at the forefront of their agenda. She said that at every meeting of the Association, top of the agenda has been discussions on how they can give back to Esanland and to Ambrose Alli University, Ekpoma.

She said that the Esan people are willing to contribute, but hitherto have been dissuaded by the attitude of non accountability in the country. She said about 8 years ago, the Esan people in Diaspora donated a container load of hospital equipments to a Teaching Hospital in Nigeria.  One year later, there was no record of the donation and neither were the equipments used to serve the people.

She said that up until recently, all the reports they were hearing about AAU were negative. However, they are happy to announce that in recent times the reports have changed.  What they hear about AAU now is that the present Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Ignatius A. Onimawo is focused on development and has zero tolerance for social vices and non accountability.  This has bought massive development to the University that has gladdened the hearts of all stakeholders and has changed the negative reports on AAU.

The President, Mercy Elimihele announced that they believe in the present Vice-Chancellor and are encouraged to make a start-up donation of 35 Computers to the University.  She requested that the  the Faculties and the students be made to get full benefit from the use of these computers, as this will encourage them to do more. She went ahead to present the 35 computers.

She also put on record that in California and the USA, Universities cannot mentioned  without mentioning AAU among the top 10.  She applauded the initiative of Professor Ambrose Alli who set up this University and prayed that his gentle soul rest in perfect peace. 

In his response, the Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Ignatius A. Onimawo welcomed the Esan Association of California to the University. He said he was very excited by the donation promising that they will be put to good use.

He said that currently AAU runs its 100 level, 200 level, and part of 300 level  examinations by Computer based examinations (CBE). This has gone a long way to curb social vices within the University.  He said that students are delighted at the experience of getting their result on the spot at the end of every exam. This has abolished the ugly syndromes of “Blocking,” marks trading, “missing result” copying at examinations, sexual harassments, wrong recording of scores and all social vices related to examinations. He informed the visitors that at the moment the University has 1,200 computers for CBE.  There is an urgent need for an additional 100 for the forthcoming 2018/2019 First Semester Examinations. He said that for a comfortable conduct of CBE examinations at all levels, the University requires a total of 3,000 Computers. The donation of 35 Computers is therefore highly welcomed and appreciated.

He directed that the visitors be taken round the University, so that they can see the CBE Examination Center at the Main library, the Examination Center currently built by Shell Petroleum and the 500 capacity CBE examination Centre donated by an alumnus Tony Elumelu of Heirs holdings, along with other recent developments in the University.

The Esan Association promised to carry the message of the rebranding and transformation of AAU back to the USA.  They also promised to rally round all Esan people in the USA to see how many more computers they can donate in the short run to meet the urgent need. On the long run,  they offered  to work in partnership with the University for greater development.

Present at the meeting were all Principal Officers, the Dean, Faculty of Engineering and Technology Engr. (Prof.) F.I. Anyasi, a lecturer in the Department of Educational Foundations and Management Dr. (Mrs.) J.O. Eimuhi as well as members of the Alumni Association from Benin Branch.

This story and pictures of the visit can be seen on the University website: https://aauekpoma.edu.ng/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=483:esan-association-of-california-usa-donates-35-computers-to-ambrose-alli-university-ekpoma&catid=29&Itemid=227
