“Edo Owned University not for the poor” - Management refutes media reports

The management of Edo University, Iyamho, Etsako West Local Government Area, Edo State, has dissociated itself from online and mainstream media reports with the headlines “Edo Owned University not for the poor,” and “VC says Edo University not for poor Nigerians”.

A statement signed by the school’s Registrar, Dr. Mrs. Isoken Ogboro, indicated that at no point in time did the Acting Vice Chancellor, either expressly or impliedly made a statement that could be conjured in the manner of the headlines in the misleading reports.

Edo University, Iyamho

“We do not therefore agree with those headlines and consequently view those captions as sensational and calculated attempt to tarnish the good image of the university.

“It is our submission that these headlines are misinformed, misguided as regards its mission of providing quality education to all classes of Nigerians “, according to the statement.

The statement described the University as one envisioned to provide quality education geared towards the socio-economic, political and technological advancements of the Nigerian state and indeed the world, irrespective of social class.

The university averred that the misleading reports may have been initiated by people motivated by partisan hegemonistic interest who found it appropriate to use the media as instruments to push them through.

Disproving the claims further, the university asserted that it has an “inbuilt scheme for the poor known as “Undergraduate Indigent Students’ Scholarship Awards (ISSA) and the Undergraduate Full Scholarship Awards (UFSA) purely designed to reward excellence and provide access to quality education to indigent students.”

It therefore condemned in strong terms any allegation or misinformation, either published on the pages of newspapers or orally spread by any person or group of persons to tarnish the good image of the Acting Vice Chancellor and the University.

It urged the reading public, both online and of-line to disregard the misleading reports, just as it assured the general public that the acting VC would continue in his good works and not allow those it called “disgruntled elements” to distract him from his avowed desire to run and position Edo University, Iyamho as one of the Ivy League universities in Nigeria and globally.

ACEONDO To Be Changed To Adeyemi Federal University of Education (AFUED)

The Adeyemi Federal University of Education, AFUED, which was sometimes put on hold in August 2015 after the public announcement by the immediate past President of Nigeria, Goodluck Jonathan, has today received a full sigh of hope for reversal of the status.

Adeyemi Federal University of Education

This hope came alive as the Adeyemi University bill and its establishment, named SB 399, was successfully passed unhindered at the Senate committee on Tertiary Institutions and TETFund.

In his own remark while declaring the public hearing opened, the Senate president, ably represented by the Deputy chief whip of the house, Senator Francis Alanumeta, a distinguished senator from Edo state, said that the bill, which came along side other bills in the same line, seeking establishments of Federal universities of Kano, Owerri and Zaria,  named SB 397, 398 &400 alongside the bill seeking the upgrading of FederalCollege of Agriculture Kabba to a University of Agriculture, is a bill that the Senate supports as the affected Colleges of Education already have existing facilities both human and materials for a successful take off such that the federal government will have less to spend in this time of economic recession.

Meanwhile, in his address of welcome, the chairman Senate committee on tertiary education, Senator Jubril Barau, assured the audience that all opinions on the matter for discussion will be heard, irrespective of the perspective. He further stated that the minority will always have their say while the majority will in turn have their way.

After the public hearing, it was indeed jubilation galore for the representatives of the four age long colleges of education whose respective bills on the upgrade to federal universities of education did not receive canter memorandum. It is therefore hoped that very soon, the Senate committee report will be ratified by the house and consequently sent to the president for executive approval and sign-in to law. It would be recalled that earlier in 2016, the respective bills have equally sailed through the processes in the green chamber.

Earlier, the presence of Senator Dino Melaye to the conference hall witnessed a loud ovation being one of the sponsors of the bills under consideration and also acknowledged as one the highly profiled senator of the federal republic of Nigeria with the highest number of sponsored bills. While addressing the August gathering, Melaye in his usual dynamic manner, pulled his weight behind the bill and dramatically affirmed that he would even go spiritual, beyond being political in seeing the successful signing of the proposed bill into law.

Leading the delegation of the College to the red chamber is the College Provost, Prof Olukoya Ogen, accompanied by the eminent Council chairman, Prof Nathaniel Ohazurike and Dr. Folorunso Balogun who equally lend their voices in support of the bill through their memorandum. Also present are the representatives of the paramount ruler of Ondo kingdom, the Lisa and Sasere of the kingdom, who both, through their paper presentation affirmed that the reversal of the Adeyemi University which was put on hold will certainly restore the joy of Ondo kingdom.

Also present at the public hearing include the Chairman of COEASU, Dr. Tope Oziegbe, COEASU secretary, comrade Olaolu Olaniyan, comrade Smart Olugbeko,  Members of the COEASU university status committee Dr. Felix Alao, Dr. Michael Ogunboyede, Mr. Joel Edafe, the MIS Assistant Director, Dr. Kehinde Adenegan, representative of SUCCOEN, comrade Jimoh Liasu, Mr. Richard Adegbesan and as well as the NASU & NACEATON, representatives,  comrade Henry Akingbola, comrade Oluwatosin Babatunde and Comrade 'Dele Akinnate

AUN Announces Nationwide CBT Scholarship Test for Aug 5th

Continuing its tradition of attracting the brightest students from throughout Nigeria and Africa, the American University of Nigeria will offer 75 merit scholarships to already accepted candidates in the 2017 fall semester.

American University of Nigeria

The highly competitive computer-based examination for the scholarships will take place in 25 centers across the Federation on August 5.

Assistant VP of Recruitment & Marketing, Julius AyukTabe, said the examination centers have been carefully selected to cover all the nation’s six geopolitical zones. Two scholarship winners will emerge from each of the nation’s 36 states and the Federal Capital territory, and one nationwide.

Last spring’s nationwide winner was 18-year-old Ms. Maryam Habila Usman, a former student of Air Force Girls Secondary School, Jos.  Ms. Usman is from Borno State. She is in the Natural and Environmental Sciences program.

Since its founding in 2003 by former Nigerian Vice President, HE Atiku Abubakar, AUN has been bringing together the best and brightest candidates from all over Nigeria, South Africa, Cameroon, Ghana, Uganda, Rwanda, Ivory Coast, Niger, Chad, Sierra Leone, and other African countries, to study under one roof.  The University seeks to make its American-style liberal education possible for all qualified applicants, regardless of family income.

Each year, AUN sets aside a large fund for scholarships and other forms of financial aid to undergraduate students.  Over the years, it has awarded about 1,000 different scholarships, including close to 300 covering full tuition, board, books, and meals. In the 2016/2017 session alone, AUN dedicated more than ₦102 million to its scholarship program, for both new and returning students. 

Scholarship students are often among the finest of AUN’s graduates.

The University’s Class of 2017 Valedictorian, Ms. Onyinye Immaculata Onuigbo, whose 3.98 CGA (out of 4 points) was the highest in the university’s history, was a scholarship student.  Identified by the Shehu Musa Yar’Adua Foundation, Ms. Onuigbo, who hails from Enugu State, is the daughter of an electrician father and nurse mother.  She completed her studies at AUN in its prestigious Petroleum Chemistry program.

The 2016 Valedictorian, Mr. Gregory Tanyi, also a scholarship student, is the son of an Engineering Professor and came to AUN from Cameroon. Tanyi studied Telecoms and Wireless Technology


Candidates are referred to the University’s website – www.aun.edu.ng  - for further details on how to apply.
