A Programme Director at the National Science Foundation (NSF), Virginia, the United States, Dr. Abiodun Ilumoka, has lauded Covenant University on the availability of state-of-the-art infrastructure and teaching facilities in the University and the high intellect of its students.

Dr. Ilumoka, a beneficiary of the Carnegie African Diaspora Fellowship Programme, gave the commendation on Wednesday, April 19, 2017, when she paid a courtesy visit to the Vice-Chancellor, Professor AAA. Atayero.

The Carnegie Fellow, formerly professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Hartford, said that it was a pleasure to be back in the country and her desire, as an Engineer, was to leave a long and lasting legacy for the younger ones.

β€œFor many of us, our mission is to help universities in Nigeria in our areas of expertise,” she added.

In his remarks, the Vice-Chancellor, Professor AAA. Atayero, said that Dr. Ilumoka had come to Covenant University at a very interesting time when Engineering programmes were being accredited.

While imploring the Carnegie Fellow to urge other Nigerian scholars in the diaspora to come home and give back, the Vice-Chancellor stated that her working visit, during which she would be giving lectures to students and faculty alike, was a good avenue to make sure she always come back.

Also at the meeting were the Dean, College of Engineering, Professor Christian Bolu; HOD, Mechanical Engineering, Dr. Oluseyi Ajayi; and HOD, Electrical and Information Engineering, Dr. Victor Matthews.
