Zulum commends management of BOSU for taking the institution to the next level

By: Bodunrin kayode

Borno State Governor Professor Babagana Zulum has commended the management of Borno State University led by Prof. Umar Sandabe, for taking the University to the next level .pp

The Governor who is the visitor to the University, gave the commendation, when the top management of the institution paid him Sallah Homage at the Government House recently.

Zulum observed that, though they may have faced challenges and made mistakes here and there, as human beings, one can never be perfect which is why he is grateful to them for a job well done.

On the admission and recruitment of personnel, Zulum emphasized that, it must conform with the purpose for which the institution was established which is primarily to provide our teaming youth with tertiary education.

He stressed that, though he is not against admitting students from other parts of the country, priority, must always be given to students of Borno state extraction.

On staff recruitment, Governor Zulum observed that, most of the lecturers are borrowed from University of Maiduguri (UNIMAID) either on sabbatical or visiting, a situation that does not auger too well with the academic staff development of the young University in the long term.

He therefore directed the VC to see him, so as to re-strategize on the long and short term needs of human capital development.

Zulum restated his commitment and determination to develop the University at all costs into a contemporary institution ready to serve the needs of the state.

He added that, the BOSU Teaching Hospital being constructed by the State Government will be completed this year for the faculty of health sciences.

Earlier,Vice Chancellor BOSU, Professor Umar Sandabe,said, they were at the Government House to felicitate with him for successful completion of the Ramadan Fast and Eid el Fitr prayer and also to formally inform him that his tenure ends this month.

Professor Sandabe thanked the Governor for his “focus” and interest in the development of the University and for the tremendous support he gave the management team throughout their tenure.

US CDC Donates Disease Detective Equipment to Nigeria

By: Michael Mike

The United States Centre for Disease Control has donated disease detective equipments to Nigeria.

The Equioments were received on Friday in Abuja on behalf of the Federal Government by the Director General, Nigeria Centre for Disease Control and Prevention, Dr.Jide Idris.

The laboratory supplies is expected to beef up the country’s outbreak response capacity, and includes biosafety cabinets, sample collection materials, and other essential laboratory commodities.

Programme Director, U.S. CDC Division of Global Health Protection, Dr. Farah Husain, said the donation was part of the efforts in helping Nigeria address the challenge of disease outbreaks.

She said that the equipment will help sustain the quality and high outputs of Nigeria’s labs.

She also assured Nigeria of her country’s commitment to help develop response capacity in protecting the people against disease outbreaks.

She said: “The United States is committed to working hand-in-hand with Nigeria to build response capacity and protect the health of our peoples,” adding that: “Today, we gather to celebrate a concrete example of the strong partnership between the United States and Nigeria

“The U.S. Government, via the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, is proud to donate equipment and supplies to the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control and Prevention to support emergency response laboratory activities.

“Nigeria is currently facing several ongoing disease outbreaks, including Lassa fever, diphtheria, and meningitis.

“Laboratory scientists play a vital role in quickly detecting and confirming cases, which is crucial for an an effective outbreak response.

” The increased volume of laboratory work created by these simultaneous outbreaks creates a pressing need for additional resources.

“Together, with laboratories as the cornerstone of our collaborative work, we can quickly and effectively prevent and respond to outbreaks.”

She revealed that health workers were not left out as there were personal protective equipment for safety of laboratory workers, stating that: “Additionally, we have included large amounts of personal protective equipment to safeguard the health and safety of laboratory workers. Whether in the subnational labs, health facilities, or the communities they serve, this donation will directly help save lives,” CDC Programme Director said.

In his remarks, NCDC boss assured the US government that the equioments will be judiciously put to use.

Idris noted that the gesture is going to boost the country’s disease detection and capability ability.

While hailing the importance of the collaboration with the US government, Idris stressed that no government can fund health system because it is very expensive.

He explained that: “No government can fund health system and that’s where we require this kind of collaboration from different partners.

“The idea and the goal is to reduce the incidence

“What concerns us mostly here is health security. This is key because a nation’s mandate to the people is to ensure that the health of the people is sacrosanct in terms of preventing the people from catching any disease, and if so, where that progression, activity is not adequate, but ensure that you properly detect whatever disease that is occurred and at the same time respond to it.

“Like we said, the government is funding the sector, but the funding may not necessarily be adequate now. That is why the health system is very expensive. No government can fund it on its own. That is why it requires this kind of collaboration from different partners.

“More importantly, in terms of global health security, one of the major focus is collaboration, partnerships both internationally, nationally and sub-nationally because everybody is coming in with different expertise and we will not necessarily have all the expertise we need but with this kind of collaboration in boosting productivity.

“The goal is to achieve our objective to reduce incidents of disease. And where you cannot stop that we respond adequately so that we can bring down the effect of any disease that is the essence here.

“So collaboration. Partnerships are key essentials of health security..”
