Pre-Convocation activities of FUTO 30th Convocation

Press briefing

The management of the Federal University of Technology, Owerri, FUTO, says it “lost N60 million to the vandals that destroyed the entire stretch of the completed perimeter fence, measuring about 1.5 kilometres, in the Umuanunu-Obinze axis”.

The Vice-Chancellor, VC, of FUTO, Professor Francis C. Eze, made the lamentation Tuesday, during a pre-convocation press briefing in the Senate Chamber of the University.

“In the early hours of Tuesday, March 13, 2018, some disgruntled and misinformed elements from Umuanunu, Obinze, destroyed the entire stretch of the completed fence. The incident has been reported to the appropriate authorities”, the VC said.

While saying that management remained “very determined to ensure the completion of the project as funds become available”, the VC, however, revealed that “FUTO intends to continue to engage the representatives of the host communities in robust, constructive and meaningful dialogue towards the peaceful resolution of all contentious land issues.”

According to the VC, a total of 2,325 students would be awarded first degrees, while 438 postgraduate degrees and diplomas will be conferred on deserving candidates. Continuing, Professor Eze said that four personalities, including the Governor of Sokoto State, Aminu Waziri Tambowal, the Managing Director, Niger Delta Development Commission, Nsima Udo Ekere, Chairman, Orange Drugs, Sir Tony Ezenna and General Manager (Exploration), Esso Exploration Production Limited, Andrew Ogaga Ejayeriese, would be conferred with honourary Doctorate Degrees.

Addressing the success stories of FUTO, the VC said: “The institution came first in the Open Education Resources ranking of Nigerian Universities, organized by the National Universities Commission, NUC. Similarly, the result of the 2017 NUC accreditation of our programmes showed that of all the 45 programmes, only two have interim accreditation status, while others have full accreditation status.”

Answering a question, the VC said that they are currently developing a new School of Computing Information and Communication Technology that would house programmes like Information Technology, Software Engineering, Computer Science, Telecommunications Science and Electronics. “We have concluded arrangement for the creation of Department of Forensic Science and Cyber Security”, the VC said.

Clearance for Students with any Perceived Problem

In the efforts to clear all problems relating to students payments and registrations, we have noticed that many of the students do not have matriculation numbers still, more especially older students of years 3, 4 and 5.  These students fall into three categories.

CATEGORY I

Students whose O’Level result has not been verified yet and they decided to ignore it and continue with their studies.  As a result, they do not have matriculation number.

CATEGORY II

Those who deliberately did not want to pay school fees in the past.

CATEGORY III

Those Students that were admitted through Direct Entry and their Transcripts are yet to be received and therefore have not completed admission process.

REQUEST

The ICT Centre is requesting the Deans of Schools to help coordinate the departments under them to send to us the list of the students that fell into any of the above-mentioned categories and to also inform such students to visit the ICT Centre from February 12th to 15th between the hours of 11.00am to 3.00pm daily to clear their problems.

NOTE:

Thank you for your kind co-operation.  Together the ICT Centre will serve you better.

Signed

Engr. Prof. Michael C. Ndinechi

Director, ICT Centre
