The attention of the University Management has been drawn to the series of letters by Dr. M.L. Igbafen, released to the press, generally expressing disaffection and making some outright allegations, all having the effect of heating up the University system and sending wrong signals to the public about the state of affairs in the University.

Ordinarily, one would have ignored the spurious allegations of Dr Igbafen, (of which I am sure the press and general public are tired by now), but it is necessary to set the records straight as they do not portray the sentiments of the rest of the staff.

(1) Implementation of Government directives on some matters within the University.
Dr. Igbafen in a letter released to the press, on June 10 2020, accused the University Management of harassment and intimidation of leadership of staff unions and disrespect of trade unionism, by deploying a detachment of policemen to chase away Union (JAC) representatives on grounds that they (Union Representatives) harassed people at the gate and prevented them from duty, even for essential services.

In that statement to the press, he noted that it is an accepted fact that it is wrong and illegal for representatives of any union to harass people at the gate and prevent them from reporting for duty.

Some leaders of JAC had positioned themselves at the gate and were physically harassing and turning back staff on essential services from reporting for work. The University Management had called them for discussions and they had refused to honour the invitations, yet they had resorted to physically turning staff back at the gate.

The University Management invited the police to prevent the breakdown of Law and Order as is usual when peace is threatened. Nobody was chased away. No Union member was harassed.

My attention has been drawn to a post in the social media by Nairaland news phxfeeds.com titled – ‘More Facts About Obaseki Certificate Scandal – Education – Nairaland.’

They alleged that I, Prof. I.A. Onimawo, granted an interview in which I said Obaseki’s certificate from UI was fake, that I graduated in 1977 from UI and that the Alumni Association of UI are aware of this.

I come out openly to denounce, debunk and condemn the post. The information touted in the post are most untrue, libellous and wicked.

I did not at any time grant any interview in this regard. I graduated from UI in 1982 and not 1977 as the fabricated story claimed in the post. I hereby totally refute and debunk the allegations.

Appropriate investigations are being carried out to find out the author(s) of this wicked lie and to bring them to book.

The post should therefore be immediately discountenanced as it is baseless and without any foundation.

As the world awaits the knowledge based system to bring about vaccines and drugs to save humanity from the COVID-19 pandemic and possible future occurrences, there has been a spike in efforts by countries to adopt and promote homegrown innovations and technologies to minimise human suffering from the disease.

Here in Nigeria, the National Universities Commission (NUC) is collating homegrown knowledge output to provide an advisory on how these can be promoted to chart a pathway for effective knowledge based national response.

In Ambrose Alli University, a research team led by Prof. O. A. Ighodalo, HOD, Mechanical Engineering has reached an advanced stage in the Development of a solar powered automated hand sanitizer with infra-red temperature detector, which we hope will represent our landmark contribution to the national response.

By this memo, members of Senate and indeed the entire University is hereby notified of the present efforts of the Directorate of Research Publication and Development in collaboration with the Faculty of Engineering and Technology to further make our University visible in the area of Technology and Innovation in this Country and beyond.

Many thanks.
