The rector of Akwa Ibom Polytechnic, Ikot Osurua, Ikot Ekpene Local Government Area, has admonished Alumni of various institutions to always embark on projects and programmes that would lift their Alma Maters.
Dr Moses Umobong made the call, recently, when he laid the foundation stone for the construction of the Pioneer Student of AkwaPoly, (PISFAP) Lecture Hall and offices at the institution.
Umobong said it was significant and commendable to see former students of any institution remember where they had the foundation that has enhanced their future endeavours.
He said, he was even Biblical that “when you are delivered, you must remember who delivered you and go for Thanksgiving,” adding that PISFAP gesture of living their comfort zones to think of expanding their Alma Mater was a welcoming development.
An elated Umobong, who said the Polytechnic was also his Alma Mater having been a campus of the Faculty of Law of the then Cross River University where he was a Law student, donated 100 bags of cement in support of the project.
He commended the leadership and members of PISFAP for the gesture and expressed the hope that the project would be completed on scheduled.
The chairman of PISFAP, Mr Innocent Paul, said the vision of the lecture hall project was borne out of the desire of PISFAP members to give back to the Polytechnic for moulding them to become successful professionals in their respective callings.
Paul, represented by his vice chairman/AkwaPoly Liaison Officer, Mr Nsikak Affia, an engineer, said the project, which would be executed in phases, would be completed and inagurated for use in 2022.
The PISFAP chairman appreciated the rector, Umobong, and his management team, for the open-arm reception they accord PISFAP members at every given time and particularly, for the rector’s mouth-watery donation of cements to support the project.
Also on the PISFAP team were: Mr Uduakobong Ikono, an architect and Mr Benjamin Jackson, a quantity surveyor.
