African University Seeks More Sponsorships

By Bukola Olatunji

ABUJA, Nigeria, July 25, 2010, (This Day) — Oil companies have been charged to offer more scholarships for students of the African University Of Science and Technology (AUST), Abuja.


Chairman of the university's Petroleum Industrial Advisory Board (PIAB) and the Chief Executive Officer of Emerald, Prof. Jude Amaefule, who made the plea at the inauguration of the Board, said it was pay-back time, "We want to explore and plead with Shell, Total, Chevron and other oil companies for more sponsorships. They have made a lot of money and have got a lot of offerings to make to Nigerians. This is the only way they can add value to the lives of the host country."


Amaefule also advised AUST to create chairs that will enable the oil companies to play more active roles in the development of the institution, as it is poised to advance the study of sciences in the African Sub-region.


The newly inaugurated Board challenged the management to exhibit transparency in the running of their affairs as a pan African university and avoid mediocrity in the selection of its students.


Prof. Monday Otabor, who represented Addax Petroleum stressed the need for a clear road map, coupled with transparency in the day-to-day running of the institution, adding that it must reach out to companies that matter to sponsor students on field trips for industrial experiences so that their products could stand out from those of other universities in the country.


"I want to see a very clear roadmap of where the university will be in the next 20 to 50 years. We must also be transparent because we are working with non Nigerians and this is the only way they could take us seriously.


Acting President of AUST, Prof. Charles Chidume said, "We are very proud of what you stand for and what you have done for AUST. Your impact is already being felt. We have run this university trying to convince people that we can do it. But we can't do much unless we produce good products. We thank the various oil companies which you represent for what they have done so far and like Oliver Twist, we still ask for more."
