DROMI offsets school fees of indigent UNIMED Medical Student.

 

Dr. Rhoda Makinde Initiative (DROMI) has come to the aid of Mr Timilehin Yinusa, a 200 Level Medicine and Surgery Student of University of Medical Sciences (UNIMED), Ondo, who was on the verge of dropping out of school, before DROMI intervened in offsetting his school fees.

 

The young brilliant Ondo son enjoyed scholarship for a single session (2016/2017 Academic Session) from the University due to his performance at the POST-UME exams. He didn’t rest on his oars and performed exceedingly well with a First Class CGPA of 4.61.

 

With the exams in the sight in matter of six days and the parent unable to pay for the new session’s (2017/2018 Academic Session) school fees, all hope was bleak according to the father, who noted that “he is a very serious boy, I have issues sponsoring his education since I had accident two years ago, I have not been able to sleep for some months now and cried when I learnt the school cannot renew his scholarship due to paucity of funds in the University”.

 

A letter of request for financial support was sent to Dr. Rhoda Makinde Initiative (DROMI). Due to the urgency and critical situation of the case, the DROMI team met and approved the request and wrote a cheque in favour of Mr. Timilehin Yinusa, which was presented at the Office of the Dean Student Affairs of the school.

 

Dr. Yemisi Jeff-Agboola (Dean of Student Affairs) who represented the Vice Chancellor, appreciated DROMI for the timely intervention and noted that the University Community is really happy for the gesture.

Mariya Tambuwal Commissions Solar Powered Dryer, Doles Out Start Up Funds To Women

Her Excellency Hajiya Mariya Aminu Waziri Tambuwal, Wife of The Executive Governor of Sokoto State commissioned Solar Powered Farm Produce Dryer for Women in Dogondaji town, Tambuwal LGA Sokoto State and
disbursed the sum of N50,000 each as Start up package for women in commemoration of 2018 International Women’s Day.

Commissioning the project, Hajiya Mariya said solar energy has the requisite potential of becoming Nigeria’s main supply of energy and might solved the the need for more conventional and harmful forms of power generation.

In her speech, Wife of the Sokoto State Governor noted that notwithstanding Nigeria’s position in the global oil trade, the country must also face the fact that the world is quickly running out of oil.

She also remarked that technology and motivation for the actualization of solar energy exists. “All what our dear planet needs is due commitment, funding and implementation and before me is such commitment, funding and implementation being harnessed to their fullest.”

“As the Mother of the Day, I wish to say that this project is highly commendable. It means that women in this area have been directly empowered to do things that ordinarily they can’t do. The benefits that would be derived from this wonderful project cannot be overemphasized”.

Hajiya Mariya urged the beneficiaries to put into use this project in the very best way possible and protect it from vandalization and lack of maintenance.

She also congratulated all the stakeholders (particularly Hon. Abdulsamad Dasuki) involved and prayed that ALLAH reward their efforts in this world and beyond.

SNEPCo donates cancer equipment to National Hospital

The Shell Nigeria Exploration and Production Company (SNEPCo) says it has donated a linear accelerator radiotherapy equipment worth over $1 million to the National Hospital, Abuja.

Speaking an event to commemorate the world cancer day on Sunday, Akinwumi Fajola, SNEPCo’s representative, said the donation was one of the company’s ways of giving back to the society.

Fajola explained that the gesture was in the bid to strengthen the quality of healthcare services in Nigeria.

Earlier, Isaac Adewole, minister for health, said the federal government plans to roll out nationwide screening for common types of cancers.

Adewole said the newly-installed machine would reduce the wear and tear of the first machine.

According to him, the old machine has treated over 200 patients and helped to check the medical tourism of patients who travel abroad for cancer treatment.

“I have also encouraged some state government to invest on both radiotherapy and chemotherapy to improve quality of care and survival of cancer patients,” the minister said.

Cancer patients in Nigeria have been dying in numbers due to difficulty in accessing radiotherapy treatment.

Nigeria has less than one radiotherapy machine to one million people compared to one machine to 250,000 people in other climes.

This has forced Nigerians to go to Ghana and other countries for treatment. About 10,000 cancer deaths and 250,000 new cases are recorded yearly.

CEO of ASYPETER’S FOUNDATION offer a young boy a mini scholarship.

At the early hours of today my political model, Rt. Hon. Julius Pond woke me up with call in respect of my great grand mother burial, thereafter I received a call from my dogged elder brother, Sir Anthony Miens Demebide.

While on my way to his house I met this disable young man named, GOD’SPOWER, I almost cried when I saw the predicament of the young boy, but as a young man who is very ambitious and promised to give hope to the hopeless, I encouraged the young boy to be optimistic and that when there is life there is hope.

After a few minutes of discussion with the young lad, I asked him to take me to his mother, without asking questions the young boy directed me to his mother. We discussed for a few minutes as well.

As the CEO of ASYPETER’S FOUNDATION who is ready to empower the hopeless, we immediately offered the young man a mini scholarship.

On this note, I thank all those that are empowering me in one way or the other to empower others, especially, Dr. Braduce Amakazi Angozi, Rt. Hon Julius Pondi, Mrs. Bakumo Caroline Ebi Dokubo, Hon. Shedrack Agediga and Sir Tare Pondi.

China awards scholarships to 47 UNICAL students

The Government of the Peoples Republic of China on Thursday awarded scholarships to 47 Students of the University of Calabar (UniCal), to celebrate the 47th anniversary of China-Nigeria diplomatic ties.

The Chinese Ambassador to Nigeria, Dr Zhou PingJiang, who presented the awards on behalf of the Government, noted that Nigeria and China had many things in common.

“While China has the largest population in Asia, Nigeria has the largest population in Africa.

“Also, we are the largest economy in Asia and the second largest in the World while Nigeria is the largest economy in Africa.

“We have many similarities and that is why our diplomatic ties have been very strong.”

He attributed China’s current economic strength to the “reform and open up’’ policy initiated 40 years ago, adding that the policy was based on a tripartite system of strong leadership, policy, and good work.

“And after 40 years of that reform and open up policy, China today has become the second largest economy in the World.”

Pingjuang lauded the management of UniCal for the great strides in academic and infrastructural development within four decades of its existence.

He also thanked the management for its hospitality.

Responding, the Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Zana Akpagu, expressed gratitude to the ambassador for choosing the institution for the awards ahead of other notable universities in the country.

He said that the gesture was a testimony that UniCal was receiving international recognition.

Akpagu announced that the institution had initiated a move to set up an Institute of African and Asian Studies.

He solicited the support of the ambassador in actualizing the institute.

The 47 awardees were drawn from various departments of the university.

In an interview, one of the awardees, Mr Okpi Bernard, a 500 level Law student, expressed joy over the award, describing it as “very wonderful”.

“I am very excited about this award. It means a lot to me; I am an orphan and this will go a long way in helping to pay my school fees,” he said.
