CU Management Commissions Surveillance System
The Management of Covenant University officially commissioned the surveillance systems at the Covenant University Health Centre (CUCH) and the African Leadership Development Centre (ALDC) on Friday, February 6, 2015.
While cutting the tape, the Vice-Chancellor, Professor Charles K. Ayo, noted that the project started a year ago. Though it came with challenges that almost led to its abortion, the successful completion was a true manifestation of Heaven on Earth.
According to the Vice-Chancellor, “the motivation behind setting up the surveillance systems was as a result of the different reports that had been coming from the University Health Centre. It was also set up for proper monitoring of activities going on at the ALDC”.
With the surveillance system, proper supervision of activities at the Covenant University Health Centre, both within and outside the building, would be made possible, which would also help to reveal where to intensify effort in order to provide adequate and effective security.
While speaking on the surveillance system at the African Leadership Development Centre (ALDC), the Vice-Chancellor said that it would help in monitoring the activities and movements around and within the centre.
The Director, Centre for System and Information Services, Pastor Abolade Afolabi, while showing the features and capacities of the surveillance system to the Management team, said the surveillance system was highly sound enabled, and capable of detecting phone rings as well as pinpoint the exact location. It is also able to clearly identify human faces.
In attendance at the commissioning were the Vice-Chancellor, Professor Charles K. Ayo, Deputy Vice-Chancellor, Professor Taiwo Abioye, the Registrar, Dr Oludayo Olumuyiwa, Director, Financial Services, Pastor Deji Okubanjo, Director Centre for System and Information Services, Pastor Abolade Afolabi, the ICT team, the Acting Chief Medical Officer of The Covenant University Health Centre, Dr Idachaba Mercy, and other Covenant University Health Centre (CUCH) staff.
