The August, 2016 edition of Ambrose Alli University, Ekpoma Health Walk was held on August 26, 2016.
The Health Walk kicked off on schedule at 9.00 a.m. from the Vice-Chancellor’s quadrangle. The Vice-Chancellor. Prof. I.A. Onimawo gave a brief health charge highlighting the benefits of regular exercising and to keep people reminded of this beneficial practice.
The Vice-Chancellor, Prof. I.A. Onimawo led the health walk surrounded by all Principal Officers with the Director of Sports co-ordinating.
The health walk train moved from the Vice-Chancellor’s quadrangle to the gate. At the University gate, a very significant and laudable innovation was introduced. Public affirmations for dethronement, neutralization and dismantling of all evil powers from the gate to every part of the University, were made.
The Vice-Chancellor explained the Spiritual significance of “the gate” of any city as the spiritual embodiment of decision making and the seat of power. By powerful spiritual declarations the Spirit of God was given charge of the University and every evil spiritual planting was destroyed. It was a brief but very powerful spiritual gathering at the gate of the University.
The spiritual empowerment was followed by physical aerobic exercises at the gate. The Director of Sports encouraged everyone to do these physical exercises on a daily basis.
The Vice-Chancellor led the health walk train from the gate back to the Vice-Chancellor’s quadrangle.
The health walk ended with a brief talk by the Vice-Chancellor pointing out the damages of accumulated tummy fat from over drinking and excess consumption of unhealthy foods which must be controlled for healthy living.
At the end of the exercise, it was glaring from the faces and the comments of all participants that it was a worthwhile exercise.
The next Health Walk is scheduled to take place on the last Friday of September, being September 30th, 2016. It would kick off by 9.00 a.m. at the Vice-Chancellor’s quadrangle.
The University Community is expected to turn out massively for this extremely beneficial exercise.
