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.

Professor Obadoni, Bernard Onyemaechi, was born into the family of Obadoni, on the 24th of April, 1960 at Ndokwa West Local Government Area, Delta State.  He attended Roman Catholic Mission Primary School in Igbe –Ogum, between 1966 and 1970.  He had to transfer to Local Authority (L.A.) Primary School, Ogumee in 1971 following the directive by General Yakubu Gowon that all Mission Primary Schools should be handed over to Government.  He therefore, sat for his Primary School Leaving Certificate in 1971 and passed with Distinction.

In 1975, he gained admission into Ogume Grammar School, Ogume and finished in record time in 1980 with First Division.  In 1982, Obadoni got admission into the then Bendel State, (now Ambrose Alli University) Ekpoma to study Agricultural Science.

It is pertinent to note that following the summary closure of the Faculties of Agriculture, Medicine and Education, in March, 1984, the students in the affected Colleges through the untiring efforts of their Rectors were transferred to other Universities where their courses were available.  So, this was also a window for the affected students to transfer to related courses within the University.
