“We have progressively increased the carrying capacity of the university. We are aggressively expanding on infrastructure to cater for the large influx of students.
“For instance, since my tenure as VC, we have built 72 classrooms/lecture spaces”, he said.
The 72 classrooms and lecture spaces, he continued, include 19 at the new education building, 10 at the new Post Graduate Classrooms, 6 at the new Undergraduate Lecture Halls, and 6 at the Auditorium Extension.

Others are 2 classrooms at the International Students’ Complex, an internet hall at the IDL Centre, as well as 6 large Halls and 4 studios at the Faculty of Bussiness Studies Complex.
“We can proudly say that we have built more Classrooms/lecture spaces in the past four years than the school had witnessed from inception”, he said.
In addition to these, the VC noted that virtually all equipment such as wooden benches, broken chairs, etc had been replaced with modern and state-of-the-art furniture.
Ndimele further stated that the university had currently built three new hostels, “which are the best on campus”: The Salvation Hostel, The Graduate Hostel, and The New Haven Hostel A.

Expert Discovers Cure For Diabetic Ulcer

Published

on

In a bid to fight diabetic ulcer, Rev Cornelius Ngochindo, has made a novel breakthrough and got approval from National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control (NAFDAC) for  a drug that cures diabetic ulcer.
Speaking at a media briefing in Port Harcourt, Prof Ngochindo said the discovery of cure for diabetic ulcer which had defiled all treatments world wide is a measure to end the amputation of diabetic patients.
    He described the Ngobebe herbal cream as his own contribution to the betterment of humanity and called on the government to partner with him for the benefit of diabetic patients.
    According to him, his is also another source of revenue for the government as people all over the world need the cream.
      Explaining further, he said in diabetic patients, there are sludges in the blood vessels which impede the free flow of blood along the affected parts of the body, noting that if it is ever pricked by nail or the region suffers any injuries with time, no blood flows into that region. The lack of flow of blood into the affected parts because of the blockade of the blood vessels, he said, causes diabetic ulcer.
  He likened Ngobebe herbal cream to the work of a plumber by gently and slowly dissolving and removing the precipitations, thus a free way of flow of blood and nutrients is secured and brings about the cure.
   He informed that if the sugar level inside the body system was very high, it would be difficult to heal the ulcer.
