    Rainy season: EEDC urges motorists to be cautious, avoid hitting electrical installations

    Enugu Electricity Distribution Company (EEDC) has urged motorists to drive with caution on highways, especially during the rainy season to avoid hitting electrical installations, owing to likely poor visibility.

    The Head, Corporate Communications of EEDC, Mr Emeka Ezeh, made the call in a statement issued on Wednesday in Enugu.

    Ezeh noted that the call had become necessary, following the series of accidents recorded within the EEDC network recently, which had affected its service delivery in some of the affected areas.

    He noted that a Toyota Camry had, on May 10, hit one of the high tension poles in the Premier Layout area of Enugu, pulling down five high tension poles and leaving customers being served by the line in darkness.

    Ezeh said that on the same day, at Emene within Enugu, an accident involving a trailer affected one high tension pole, leaving the industrial customers within the area without power supply.

    “These incidents are one out of the many recorded within our network, and it has always impacted negatively on our revenue, as huge losses are incurred,” he said.

    Ezeh also stated that earlier in the month, a Toyota car was involved in an accident at ESUT, Agbani, knocking down one low tension pole, while along Amuri Road, Abakpa, a trailer broke one high tension pole and two low tension ones.

    “At Ugwuonyeama, a truck knocked down one high tension pole and at Nsukka Road, Ninth Mile, a trailer knocked down one high tension pole,” Ezeh said.

    The EEDC spokesman attributed some of the causes of the accidents to speeding, use of mobile phones while driving, drunkenness and distractions.

    He noted that in some cases, faulty vehicles were put on the road, thus causing more havoc to electricity network.

    “EEDC is working assiduously to ensure that its network is stable and that customers enjoy its services, and we will not want these service disruptions to affect the efforts being made.

    “We, therefore, appeal to motorists to exercise caution, reduce their speed and also ensure that their vehicles are in good condition before putting them on the road,” he said. (

    Gov. Ugwuanyi supports establishment of University Hospital at Adoration Centre

    Gov. Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi of Enugu State, says his administration would support the establishment of a University Hospital at Adoration Centre, Enugu.

    Ugwuanyi said this when Rev. Fr. Ejike Mbaka, Spiritual Director, Adoration Ministry, Enugu, Nigeria (AMEN) and Mr Nandiswar Kaushal, Group Chairman, HP Kapital Limited, and his team visited him at Government House, Enugu.

    They came with a proposal by HP Kapital Limited, a British firm, to partner the Adoration Ministry Enugu Nigeria (AMEN) to build a 500-bed University Hospital.

    The proposal also included building of three factories, a waste management plant and other facilities within the vicinity of the Adoration centre.

    The delegations visited Ugwuanyi to formally inform him of their remodeling plan for the Adoration Centre.

    The plan is for the Centre to serve as a multifunctional facility to include a University Hospital of international standard with specialised medical services and facilities, including a helipad and air ambulance.

    Others are a five-star hotel, recreation facility and convention centre, among others.

    Ugwuanyi said the state government would do all that is required, considering its limited resources, to assist and ensure that the project succeeds.

    Requesting for land for the project, the delegation also informed the governor of their plan to build an energy plant to manage waste and convert it to wealth.

    They equally said they would build three factories that would employ 600 people locally, and 40 engineers who would be trained abroad. These will benefit the state and the local community.

    Ugwuanyi expressed delight at the project action plan which is in line with his agenda of creating jobs for the youths and providing qualitative and affordable healthcare services to residents, including rural dwellers.

    He said that his administration would continue to support and encourage any venture that would create jobs and add value to the state’s economy and living standard of the people.

    Earlier in his presentation, Kaushal informed Ugwuanyi that the University Hospital would be affiliated with “your University here, Enugu State University of Technology (ESUT), and AU University in Britain”.

    He said that the degrees that would be awarded would be in collaboration with ESUT and AU British University.

    The chairman disclosed that the company hopes to have an initial strength of 7,500 students in a number of different curricula, “not only in medicine”.

    He explained further that “the staff accommodation is going to be 2,500 people” locally and internationally.

    On corporate social responsibility, the chairman said  they would help the needy and less privileged, revealing that “10 per cent of all beds, no matter the cost of the bill, will be free so far as those patients are registered citizens of Enugu State,” he said.

    Mbaka thanked the governor for his fatherly support, pointing out that it would be a thing of joy for “the generation to come to know that this project was established in Gov. Ugwuany’s time”.

    He said the project is coming to Enugu State because of the existing peace and the enabling environment provided by the governor.

    “The HP Kapital Limited is not just coming as a mono entrepreneurial team; we are partnering with them.

    “It is a holistic partnership between them and Adoration Ministry. All you have suggested are in tandem with our vision and mission, especially when you talked about the charitable dimension and how this will be beneficial to the inherent resident community; it is part and parcel of our dream,” he said.

    Mbaka prayed for the timely commencement and successful completion of the project.

    He assured Ugwuanyi of their collective commitment and determination to ensure that he inaugurates some of the projects before the end of his administration.

    “Your Excellency, by the time you are not in the office as Governor of Enugu State, there are a lot of things for which you should be remembered for.

    “I pray that among all the credible, multiple, pragmatic, and demonstrated developments, one of them should be this project we have come with today,” he said.

    12 Nigerians win regional awards on research, innovations

    No fewer than 12 Nigerian researchers, innovators and budding scientists have won regional awards in a competition sponsored by the Royal Academy of Engineering, Northumbria University, Newcastle, UK.

    The awards were based on innovations in four thematic areas, namely green materials, renewable energy, sustainable agriculture and waste-to-energy.

    Vice Chancellor of Enugu State University of Science and Technology, ESUT, Prof. Charles Eze, presented the award certificates to the laureates on Saturday at the British academy arm at the institution.

    Mr. Eze said it was gratifying that the academy arm was housed in the institution's Center for Innovation and Sustainable Development.

    The vice-chancellor said that ESUT's position as the leading science and technology university in Nigeria necessitated the location of the center at the school.

    He said that ESUT, over the years, has pioneered innovations in the areas of science and technology.

    “It is a courtesy of the Royal Academy of Engineering that we have an arm of the academy in ESUT,” he said.

    The deputy foreign minister congratulated the winners of the awards, which, he said, are intended to produce technologies for sustainable rural development and community service.

    “We are happy that the academy uses ESUT as a hub and we are here to witness the awards to those who have distinguished themselves as researchers in those four subject areas.

    “The competition was conducted in such a transparent way that you cannot fail. The entire evaluation process was done online by the Royal Academy of Engineering,” he said.

    Mr. Eze congratulated the awardees and urged them to do more, while asking unsuccessful competitors to learn from the process.

    Earlier, the Director of the Center for Innovation and Sustainable Development, Prof. Paul Nnamchi, said the competition aimed to promote renewable energy technologies, green materials, waste-to-energy solutions and sustainable agriculture in rural communities.

    Mr. Nnamchi said that these could be achieved through research, training and entrepreneurship.

    He cited some of the benefits of the project to include economic growth, sustainable communities and healthy living for local people.

    “On several levels, this project will impact a variety of stakeholders. For people, it will contribute to a cleaner environment, high-quality education and well-being.

    “For organizations, it will initiate new research and development projects and investments in renewable energy, waste utilization and sustainable agriculture.

    “For local economies, it will help contribute to the government's policy of creating high-end living conditions in remote populated areas,” Mr. Nnamchi said.

    NAN further reports that the winners of the competition in the four categories received N650,000 each, the first runners-up got N400,000, while the second runners-up received N200,000.

    For their part, some speakers and corporate entities have also won awards in the four thematic areas of the Green Material Category, Renewable Energy, Sustainable Agriculture and Waste to Energy.
