    UNIMAID students commend FG for road rehabilitation

    Students of University of Maiduguri (UNIMAID) have expressed appreciation to Minister of Works and Housing, Mr Babatunde Fashola and President Muhammadu Buhari for rehabilitation of roads in the nation’s university.

    Mrs Boade Akinola, Director, Press and Public Relations, Ministry of Works and Housing made this known to Nigeria News Agency , in a statement on Wednesday.

    Mr Abdulrahman Zanna, President of the Students Union Government (SUG), made the appreciation on behalf of the students during the formal handing over of 1.653 km rehabilitated roads by the ministry under its intervention initiative.

    The project also included asphalt overlay of 0.303 km road in the university.

    Zanna said the intervention brought the much needed succour in the school and would greatly enhance learning and boost the morale of students in the pursuit of knowledge.

    According to him, UNIMAID has been witnessing increasing number of students from the North East region and requested for more of such intervention for the school.

    He added that the effort of President Buhari in the provision and improvement of infrastructure in the nation’s tertiary institutions was a clear demonstration of his commitment to close the infrastructural deficit in the country.

    NAN reports that University of Maiduguri is among the 18 federal tertiary institutions that benefited from the first phase of the internal roads intervention project of the Federal Ministry of Works and Housing.

    Prof. Aliyu Shugaba, Vice Chancellor of the university, said the road was the busiest road on the campus because it connected the students’ hostels and the commercial centre on the campus.

    “Motorists have now found succour plying the road, prior to the rehabilitation, the experience on the road was bad,” he said.

    The Vice Chancellor, assured that the road would be taken care of, adding that there was greater need for more road to serve the university because of its expansive land.

    Babatunde Fashola, Minister of Works, who was represented by Yahaya Ali, Borno State Federal Controller of Works, said the quality of education would no doubt be impacted by the quality of infrastructure and the learning environment.

    “The gap of our infrastructure needs is steadily being bridged by a gradual process of repairs, renewal and construction on major highways and it has reached the schools.

    “The intervention by Federal Government will improve the ambience and environment of Federal Tertiary Institutions to enhance academic activities,” he said.

    In attendance at the ceremony were the Pro-Chancellor and Chairman Governing Council of the University, Prof. Biodun Adesanya and other management staff.

    Adesanya, commended the ministry for coming to the aid of the tertiary institutions in the country, describing it as a good initiative that would greatly grow the education sector.

    Don wants FG to give grants to entrepreneurs, not loans

    Prof. Isa Hussaini, a Lecturer with Faculty of Pharmacy, University of Maiduguri (UNIMAID)

    on Friday urged Federal Government to give grants to entrepreneurs and small business owners an encouragement for self-reliance.

    Hussaini made the call in an interview with Nigeria News Agency in Abuja.

    The don, who said that grants were non-repayable funds disbursed or given by one party, often a government department, corporation,

    foundation or trust, to educational institution, business or individual, was more beneficial to small businesses.

    He added that grants were free money given to people to assist them to start their ideas and businesses.

    He explained that “when you give grants to an entrepreneur, he or she will not go through the stress of thinking about

    how to pay back.”

    He, however, emphasised that government must be certain of what the entrepreneur planned to do with the grant

    before giving out such assistance.

    He said “entreprenuers should be able to write a proposal of the type of business they want to engage in and it must be a

    feasible project.

    “I know that Vice President, Yemi Osinbajo, recently gave out N10,000 and N15,000 but we need government to do more,

    probably to give N1 milllion or N10 million to small businesses; and you will see them take off beautifully.

    “Most of these businesses are technically competent, all they need is funding. Getting loans kill businesses even before they

    take off because of the interest rates that they are forced to pay.”

    He said that grants should be given in line with the kind of business and field of specialisation of the entrepreneurs.

    The don also emphasised the need for government to fix power supply “to reduce the burden of entreprenuers, as many of them

    resort to generators for electricity.

    “This is because grants without electricity to power businesses is still a problem for many entreprenuers.

    “Therefore, government should do all in its power to stabilise power supply to encourage economic development.”

    Hussaini, who also spoke about medicinal plants in the country, noted that “we have such plants in abundance: we only need

    fund to add the required value to the plants and package them for the benefit of citizens and others.”

    He added that lecturers in universities should be encouraged to spin off companies, adding that it was how Google, Yahoo and

    Facebook came about.

    The don said that government should encourage ordinary people as well because ideas were everywhere and not restricted to

    only knowledge centres like universities.

    He said “secondary school leavers, people who failed to get into university are people that can be trained; it should not always

    be about universities.

    “Get these people, train them, and they in turn will train others then you will see a productive economy.

    Prof. Isa Hussain, a lecturer in Faculty of Pharmacy, University of Maiduguri (UNIMAID) on Thursday urged Federal Government to increase investment in Research and Development (R& D) to encourage indigenous innovation.

    He made the call in an interview with Nigeria News Agency on the sidelines of Research Prize Awards and Dinner organised by the International Institute for Training, Research and Economic Development (IITRED) in Abuja.Hussaini, who won an IITRED award prize for medical research, told NAN that “if Research and Development must grow in Nigeria, there is need for Federal Government to fund research because the process requires lots of money and universities cannot do it on their own.“The National Institute of Health in U.S. spends about 30 billion dollars every year on medical research, but if Nigeria can spend even one billion dollars on research in universities, it will solve a whole lot of problems.”The lecturer explained that his research focused on the use of medical plants to manage different types of cancer.He said “our research looked at the efficacy and toxicity of Nigerian medicinal plants on various forms of cancer, including brain tumour, cervical cancer and breast cancer.“We discovered about 10 medicinal plants that are less toxic and very effective in killing breast cancer cells and brain tumor, which are more effective than chemotherapy given in hospitals.“We evaluated the toxicity level of the plants, tried them in humans and found to be very effective.”One of such plants was Ximenia Americana, which he said IITRED was in the process of filing a patent for the use of the medicinal plant for the treatment of breast cancer and brain tumor, in collaboration with the National Office for Technology Acquisition and Promotion (NOTAP).He, however decried difficulty in sourcing for authentic reagents in the country, saying it was a major challenge.He, however, noted that the researchers by-passed by sourcing reagents from England and the U.S.A.He expressed delight in the award he recieved, adding that it would give credence to R&D in the country and in the global community.NAN also reports that Dr Ibrahim Hussaini, Director-General, Raw Materials Research and Development Council, received the IITRED Fellowship award.Edited by: Hadiza Mohammed-Aliyu
