by OkeomaNews

The Imo State Government and the management of Federal University of Technology, Owerri, Imo State have resolved to partner to improve sanitation, Information and Communications Technology, security and crisis resolution mechanisms amongst the varsity’s students, staff and the host communities.

The Special Adviser to the state Governor, on Rural Water Supply and Sanitation Agency, Godson Okereke, popularly known as Bishop spoke when he met the Vice Chancellor of the university, Prof Nnenna Oti on Thursday.

Okereke, a former leader of National Association Of Nigerian Student said that the VC was doing well in promoting academic excellence and discipline in the university.

The governor’s aide said that he was at the school to fine tune ways with the Management to revive the existing overhead Water Tanks in the University for adequate and regular supply of clean water to FUTO community and how the  State government could partner with the University management to improve sanitation and conducive teaching and learning environment. 

While reflecting that FUTO was rated as the 12th Institution in Engineering in Nigeria with high match in the world, Okereke said in due course FUTO is going to be number one centre of academic, economic and ICT excellence in Nigeria.

“FUTO remains one of the oldest Institutions in South East with fast growing population and track records of academic excellence as  number 12th in Nigeria in engineering ranking with high match in the world. FUTO has continued to be on the news for the right reasons. Hence recently, FUTO now has a Federal University Teaching Hospital which was facilitated by His Excellency, Hope Uzodimma, the Executive Governor of Imo State. This milestone was a plus to the institution.

“Not forgetting the recent construction and equipping of FUTO ICT Centre which is an SPDC/NCDB Project sponsored by Shell. Together with the digital economy center of South East Region to be sited in FUTO are all geared towards making FUTO a permanent center of excellence in South East and Nigeria at large”. 

He said he was impressed with the astronomic rise of infrastructure and moral development in FUTO under Oti as VC, observing that FUTO had experienced a lot of federal and state governments presence, believing that when the projects are fully implemented FUTO would be number one University in Nigeria and one of the best in the world.

Okereke thus appreciated the Vice Chancellor for her wisdom, intellectual ability and leadership charisma in addressing community crisis, insecurity, advancing students and staff welfare, enhancing academic excellence, lauding FUTO Management and lecturers for their firm support to the First Female Vice Chancellor of FUTO, imploring them to remain steadfast in making FUTO great.
