As part of effort to promote reading culture and sensitization about library community services delivery and programmes, books worth millions of naira were on Wednesday 7th August 2013 donated to six school libraries within the University catchment area.
The Schools are University Demonstration Secondary School Ndele, Sea Shell Model Primary School Port Harcourt, Venerable Thompson Memorial Basic Secondary School Rumuolumeni Port Harcourt, Community Secondary School Rumuolumeni, Community Secondary School Ndele and Community Secondary School Oroworukwo Port Harcourt.
Presenting the books to the Principals and representatives of the six Schools, Vice-Chancellor of Ignatius Ajuru University of Education, Professor Rosemund Dienye Green – Osahogulu remarked that the donation is part of the University Community Service and urged the beneficiaries to make judicious use of the books.
Also speaking, the University Librarian, Dr. Boma Obi noted that the Vice Chancellor has been library friendly and has attracted to the University library enormous volumes of books in Sciences, Technology, English Literature, History and other Subjects, through her linkages with Bonny Community, Atlanta USA, Emeka Offor Book Aid and NEPAD. She said that the Vice-Chancellor also encouraged every Department in the Institution to start and own a library by facilitating acquisition of books which could metamorphose into faculty libraries in future.
Dr. Obi stated that the E-Library is also functional as some of the e’ subscription/databases have been made available to enhance information service delivery, referred to as modern library climate and has increased readership.
She further added that very soon with the Vice-Chancellor championing the course, the library will not only move into the “State of the art” automated library building but the University will also start the BLS ED Programme in the Faculty of Education, a programme which she affirmed is lacking in the whole State.
The Principal of University Demonstration Secondary School Ndele, Dr. Felicia Nmom on behalf of the beneficiaries expressed gratitude for the kind gesture and promised that the books will be used for the purpose for which they were given. The books donated to the six Schools are for various fields of study.

The Staff are former College Librarian Mrs. Majigba Ateli, immediate past University Librarian Sir Kingsley Olumati, former Binder Mr. Bema Emmanuel, Mrs. Confidence Woko and Mr. Emmanuel Job a chief driver. In her speech, the chairman of the occasion and Vice-Chancellor of Ignatius Ajuru University of Education Professor Rosemund Dienye Green Osahogulu called on other units to emulate the initiative by the Library Department stressing that it is always a good thing to honour people who gave their best in service to humanity.
She expressed gratitude that the retirees are alive to witness the honour done to them and expressed hope that those still in service will also be remembered when they leave service.
The Vice-Chancellor who thanked them for honouring the invitation prayed God to continue to be with them.
The University Librarian Dr. Boma Obi in her address stated that the event is meant to recognise, acknowledge and appreciate the library Staff that had worked tirelessly and painstakingly and retired meritoriously. She welcome all to the gathering to show love and recognise mentorship and family in the library.
Dr. Boma Obi pointed out that under their tutelage many Librarians were trained with their mentorship skill spanning through academic and public Librarians in the State. She remarked t that it was a rare privilege working under these fine and erudite information managers and astute administrators who have left their footprints on the sand of time in the Librarianship.
Responding on behalf of the retirees the immediate past University Llibrarian, Sir Kingsley Olumati thanked the University for remembering to honourn them while they are still alive and said they will remain grateful. The event featured goodwill speeches and presentation of gifts.

JAMB COMMENDS IAUE ICT CENTRE

JAMB COMMENDS IAUE ICT CENTRE

 An official from the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) Test Administration Unit, JAMB Headquarters, Bwari  Abuja,  Mr. Tunde Olaleye has commended Ignatius Ajuru University of Education ICT Centre for a hitch free DBT/CBT exercise.

He gave the commendation after IAUE ICT centre had successfully conducted the scheduled Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) Dual Based Test (DBT), Computer Based Test (CBT) and Paper and Pencil Test (PPT).

Mr. Olaleye who promised to write a special commendation report about the centre, lauded them for  providing enough computers, manpower, uninterrupted power supply and other facilities needed adding that it has proved to be  one of the best JAMB Centres in the country.

 In an interview later, the ICT Centre Director, Professor Dele Joshua Osahogulu disclosed that JAMB as an examining body had three different populations of Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) candidates.

 The traditional group he said took the Paper and Pencil Test (PPT) which remained the staple system of  JAMB examination that Nigerians are used to, on April  27TH 2013 and involved purely paper borne questions and responses. The second category was the Dual Based Test candidates  with whom the Paper and Pencil mode  was used partially alongside the Computer.  The questions were computer borne while responses were made on paper.The third category according to the ICT Director was the Computer Based Test candidates whose questions and responses were purely computer based.

 He said that the PPT and DBT were conducted concurrently on the 27th of  April 2013 but that because of the challenge in conducting the CBT where the responses were uploaded from the centres and the questions from Abuja which required many computers and a reliable nationwide network, the DBT candidates had to resort to taking the PPT mode.

 Professor Osahogulu observed that presently no university or ICT centre in the country has a robust and expansive enough network computers to accommodate all the candidates scheduled to take CBT at once in one day and so batching had to be done over several days.

 He noted that although the concurrent PPT and DBT lasted one day, CBT lasted three weeks, two weeks in IAUE from 6am to 6pm with constant power supply by the University’s Estate Unit. JAMB on its part ensured that no university depended on Power Holding Company of Nigeria to avoid even a momentary experience of power outage.

 The ICT centre director remarked that a total of one thousand six hundred and seventeen (1617) candidates were assigned to the centre initially but that JAMB moved all the candidates and staff whose centre failed and collapsed to IAUE bringing the total number to two thousand, seven hundred and eighty candidates (2,780). He observed that inspite of the large number of candidates all went well with the CBT which started Saturday 18th May and continued to Friday 31st May 2013.

 Professor Osahogulu stated that this was the first time JAMB CBT was taking place and commended JAMB for the initiative. He also observed that JAMB quickly resorted to PPT when DBT failed. CBT he emphasized, afforded greater speed in the whole process, effectively prevented examination misconduct, cheating and fraud.  It however placed a heavy strain on the Institution’s computer systems and generators and temporarily denied all other officers in the University access to the ICT network and electrical power that was also rationed in favour of the ICT Centre.

 He  thanked the IAUE management for all the support given and appealed to JAMB to rectify whatever technical faults had prevented the successful transmission and smooth download of the electronic versions of the test papers. He also suggests consideration of construction of public examination hall facilities by JAMB to include large CBT administration venues which can conveniently sit at least one thousand candidates per batch.

Faculty of Humanities Holds Special Faculty/ Seminar Conference

 The Vice-Chancellor of Ignatius Ajuru University of Education, Professor Rosemund Dienye Green-Osahogulu has reiterated her determination towards ensuring that the institution becomes a world class university.

She was speaking at the first special faculty seminar/Conference of the faculty of Humanities held on Monday 17th June 2013 at the old lecture hall.

The Vice Chancellor who encouraged participants to believe that they can attain to greater heights where ever they find themselves told them that all her efforts are for the well being of the university.

She urged the students to always hold their head high as they are ambassadors of the institution noting that when they display signs of integrity and discipline in their character they will be respected wherever they are.

Professor Rosemund Osahogulu expressed delight that lecturers misconduct has reduced to the barest minimum with no more cases of examination malpractice pointing that when the building projects of the Faculty of Humanities and Home Economics is completed, it will be structures that they will be proud of.

She hopes that the two campuses at St John Diobu and Ndele can be moved to the main campus so that Ndele can be used as a research institute and St John for sandwich and other programmes that the university can generate funds from.

The Vice Chancellor commended the Faculty of Humanities for being the least with complaints found in other Faculties.

The Deputy Vice Chancellor Professor Lawanson Briggs while presenting a key note address remarked that the Faculty of Humanities in any institution of higher learning is usually a leading Faculty as it always sets the pace. Prof. Briggs observed that the Faculty has represented the university in debates and essay writings, bringing several cups home as a mark of honour to this institution. He gave instances of the world peace cup of 2012, where IAUE students beat the students of university of Port Harcourt.  Also of a student in the faculty of Humanities who won the university scholarship for coming first in Elechi Amadi’s National Literary.

Contest and the first runner-up position won by IAUE Humanities students at the just concluded south south university debate at the university of Calabar, where one of the lecturers, Dr. Funmi Adesanya an Associate Professor in the Department of English also won the best adjudicator.The Deputy Vice-Chancellor emphasized that organizing conferences is one of the key features of any thriving and growing institution, pointing out that this maiden edition of the Faculty of Humanities conference is therefore a welcomed development in the university.

The theme of the conference “Topics and issues in the Humanities” Professor Briggs stated are all encompassing bearing in mind the various departments in the faculty of Humanities and the title of the lead paper, “The fate of the Humanities in the 21st Century specific bearing in mind a definite course for the conference. He defined humanities as academic discipline that study human culture, using methods that are primarily analytical, critical or speculative and having a significant historical element as distinguished from the mainly empirical approaches of the natural sciences.

 The Deputy Vice Chancellor maintained that scholars working in the humanities are sometimes described as humanists and as humanitarians they have the honour to host all the principal officers of the institution as a mark of a new beginning.

Humanities he went on to say is the oldest area of studying that revolves around the study of human beings, their make up,  historical development and expectations. Without humanities he further said, humans would never advance, would stay in the same place, reinventing the wheel adding that even other natural science would be of no or little significance.He appealed and admonished that all blend together into one and continue to grow together for the greatness of the institution and in the spirit of Humanities keep oiling the wheel of the university in one accord.

The Deputy Vice Chancellor was represented by Professor Folorunso Adisa Ogunleke.

In his welcome address the Acting Dean, Faculty of Humanities Dr. Kingdom Orji said that the faculty recognize the strategic role rigorous research plays in an academic community and decided to set a day aside to brainstorm on topical issues related to the Humanities and allied discipline in the society.

He emphasized that the faculty is dedicated to the principles of “Excellence, Integrity and service” in keeping with the vision of the university and called on all lecturers to imbibe the spirit of diligence and commitment to duty.

Dr. Orji commended efforts put in place by the faculty towards academic seminars and workshops where scholarly papers are presented and discussed and enjoined other Departments to emulate their enviable example.

He informed the audience that two volumes of ICHEKE, the faculty journal is expected in the next few weeks and that the proceedings of the conference will be published as a special edition. The faculty he added has provided the platform for academic excellence and urged all to key into it.

He also encouraged lecturers to make writing and publishing a habit as there are many outlets where well written papers can be published both on shore and off shore and to attend conferences organized in other Departments and Faculties within and outside the university as they provide ample opportunities for cross-fertilization and capacity building.

The Acting Dean, asserted that management under the leadership of the amiable Vice Chancellor, Professor Rosemund Dienye Green-Osahogulu is ever willing to sponsor participation in such academic exercises.

Professor Charles Nnolim, Professor Emeritus of University of Port Harcourt presented a lead paper on “The Fate of Humanities in the 21st Century.

The event featured presentation of an award won by the Faculty of Humanities students at the south south university debate at the University of Calabar to the Vice Chancellor as well as performance by the music department.
