    The management of the University of Benin (UNIBEN) has described the death of Nigeria’s highlife music icon, Sir Victor Uwaifo, as a huge loss to the entertainment industry.

    The Vice Chancellor, Prof. Lilian Salami, said in a statement on Sunday that Uwaifo would be missed by the university community.

    “He had an uncommon mastery of the arts. The death of the ‘Joromi crooner’ is a huge loss to Nigeria.

    “The shocking and wicked news of the loss of this legend and great son of Benin Kingdom is shocking to us.

    “Our most painful and heartfelt condolences go to his family, Edo State, the university community, his friends and loved ones,” she said.

    The vice chancellor said the Edo-born entertainer had left a void that would be difficult to fill in Nigeria’s entertainment industry.

    “Victor Uwaifo was UNIBEN’s second Alumni Honorary Graduate, may his good soul rest in peace. We pray God to grant us all the will to bear this irreplaceable loss,” she said.

    On his part, Mr Dennis Idahosa, member, representing Ovia Federal Constituency in the House of Representatives, described Uwaifo as a legend and African music icon.

    Idahosa said in a statement by his Media Aide, Friday Aghedo, that Nigeria’s entertainment industry had lost one of its greatest inspirations.

    “Uwaifo was a pride of Edo State in Nigeria’s creative industry. He was a musical export and a great patriot.

    “We have, indeed, lost one of the bests in the creative industry. Though he is gone, his legacies will remain,” he said.

    The News Agency of Nigeria reports that Uwaifo, whose ‘Mammy Water’ album was a hit for decades, died on Saturday at the age of 80.

    One of his children, Peter Uwaifo, broke the news of the demise of the UNIBEN professor of Visual Arts, on Saturday evening.  (www.)

    12 varsities get N1bn each for TETFund centres

    Prof. Suleiman Bogoro, Executive Secretary, Tertiary Education Trust Fund (TETFund), on Thursday presented allocation letters to the Vice-Chancellors of 12 universities for the take-off of their TETFund Centre of Excellence (TCOE).

    Bogoro, while presenting the letters in Abuja at an event, charged the institutions on implementation of its own approved TCOE to address specific national development challenges by preparing professionals.

    He also disclosed that the board would fund the centres with a grant of N1 billion each for five years to enable them attain national aspirations.

    The News Agency of Nigeria reports that President Muhammadu Buhari in March approved the first set of TCOE to take up research in their respective regions for national development.

    He said two universities were selected from each geopolitical zone of the country to bridge the gap between researchers and users, as well as stimulating and strengthening triple-helix relationships.

    He listed the universities to include: in North Central, University of Abuja which would host TCOE in Public Governance and Leadership and University of Jos to host TCOE in Food Security.

    North East has Abubakar Tafawa Balewa University, Bauchi, to host TCOE in Food Security and University of Maiduguri will host TCOE in Arid Zone Research and Development.

    He added that in North West, Usman Dan-Fodio University, Sokoto will host TCOE in Urology and Nephrology, while Bayero University, Kano will host TCOE in Renewable Energy.

    Others are: South East, Michael Okpara University of Agriculture, Umudike to host TCOE in Root Crop Research and Development and Nnamdi Azikiwe University, Awka to host TCOE in Agricultural and Engineering Translational Studies.

    Bogoro also named the University of Benin to host TCOE in Aquaculture and Food Technology, while University of Uyo will host TCOE in Computational Intelligence in South South region.

    In the South West, the University of Ibadan to host TCOE in Multi-Disciplinary Studies and the University of Lagos on TCOE in Biodiversity Conservation and Ecosystem Management.

    According to him, the relevance of COEs for capacity building in developing countries cannot be overemphasised.

    He said COEs were potent instruments for nation building as far as they have the potential to realise human resource development.

    He said “The conceptual framework for Centres of Excellence is unlikely to be unfamiliar, alien or even novel to most of you here. Nevertheless, a Strategic Framework and Establishment Guidelines for TETFund Centres of Excellence, as approved by the TETFund Board of Trustees will be made available to all of you.

    “Each selected institution is expected to implement its own approved TCOE, with the objective to address a specific national development challenge through preparation of professionals, applied research and associated outreach activities to partner, especially community services.

    “Within that prism, institutions will have autonomy to implement their own institution-specific proposals to enhance capacity to deliver national high-quality training to address development challenges.”

    He said the major objective of establishing the Centres was among others, to support strategic and applications-oriented research and expertise with potential industrial application.

    Also, the chairman, TETFund Board of Trustees, Alhaji Kashim Ibrahim-Imam said the fund’s BOT was committed to advancing the tertiary education in all ramifications.

    Ibrahim-Iman promised that the fund would continue to sustain the process of research in the country, noting that an additional 12 universities would be established by 2021.

    He said “We want you to invest at least 70 per cent of the research grant in safe and high-yielding financial investment.”

    Responding on behalf of Vice-Chancellors of the benefiting universities, Prof. Lilian Salami, Vice Chancellor, University of Benin promised to live to expectations in delivering the task accorded to them.

    She said the event was special as it marked the 50 years of the existence of the notable institution of higher learning established as a model for others to emulate.

    “But for the unfortunate incidence of COVID-19 pandemic which has brought the entire world to its knees, this would have been a truly golden celebration.

    “As the 10th substantive vice chancellor of this great institution, let me reaffirm my commitment and dedication to building on the platform of achievement by my predecessors as we work to take the University of Benin to the pedestal of a modern and world class institution.

    “I, therefore, stand to serve our diverse student community and promise to encourage everyone who is committed to positive change for this great institution in whatever way possible,” she said.

    According to her, the last 50 years, the University of Benin has contributed in supplying its fair share of leaders across different spheres of the nation’s political, industrial and economic sectors.

    Salami said that staff of the university were committed to pursuing the vision of the founding fathers to make  the institution world best and creating innovative abilities of the Nigerian people.

    She said the institution was also committed to the goal of developing the human mind to be creative, innovative and competent in their areas of specialisation, knowledgeable in entrepreneurship and dedicated to service as the university’s mission statement charges.

    “In the years ahead, we shall continue to deploy cutting edge technologies to build human capacity so as to make the University of Benin a world-class educational institution and an innovation as well as technology hub in Africa.

    “I appreciate Papa Felix Omobude, the National President of the Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria, who honoured our invitation at a short notice because of his love of our university.

    “The sacrifices of our resident religious ministers are also not unnoticed including Venerable Osaze Egbenusi, Rev. Fr. Andrew Obiyan and Prof. B.A Ayinde; may God reward your labours of love,” she said.

    Prof. David Izekor, the Deputy Vice Chancellor (Academic) UNIBEN, commended the staff of the institution for working hard to move the university to greater heights.
