UNIZIK High School Applauds governor OBIANO for His support towards the school

The Management of UNIZIK High School has written to appreciate the executive Governor of Anambra State, Chief Dr. Willie Obiano for his magnanimous support to the school, through the donation of equipment; sick bay and sports equipment.


The Principal, Lady Onyedike Victoria thanked the Governor who also provided refreshment during the school’s inter-house sports.  She prayed for God’s blessings on him for his benevolence.



The Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Joseph E. Ahaneku, FAS has commended the students of UNIZIK High School for their excellent performance at the just concluded 2017 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME).


This commendation came when the Press Club members of the school paid a visit to interact with the vice-Chancellor in his office in preparation for their 10th Anniversary Celebration.


Earlier in her speech, the Principal of UNIZIK High School, Lady Chibuzo Victoria Onyedike expressed their profound gratitude to the Vice-Chancellor for his fatherly support and promised to do more within her power to advance the school’s glory in blazing the trail.



Students of Nnamdi Azikiwe University seem prepared for the 2016/2017 second semester examination which has been slated to begin on the 10th of July, 2017.


UNIZIK Bulletin Crew engaged some students in an interview to know how prepared they were for the exam.  Some students who were approached said they were very much ready for the examination, as they have covered the courses to be written.


But just as expected, knowing that some students get carried away by the numerous activities associated with the second semester – Students/Faculty Week, etc., few students said that the semester is just too short and that they need more time, as the students week, which was filled with too many activities, did not allow them concentrate and prepare for the exam.  They however, noted that they are reading “Till Day Break” (TDB) to ensure that they come out in flying colours.


The Nnamdi Azikiwe University Women Association (NAUWA) Bakery which is situated behind the Faculty of Arts Building, UNIZIK will soon officially be opened for business.


Speaking to the Engineer in charge of production, Engr. Oliver Mbonu, he said that the machines for production were being test-run to ensure that there would be a smooth running of production when it begins. According to Engr. Mbonu, there has been production of bread which is part of the test running. 


It is worthy to note that the Association advertised for interested persons to key into its idea, by buying the bakery’s slots which is evident to pay off in the future. Many staff, both NAUWA members and non-NAUWA members keyed into the Venture.


It has been observed that the University staff and non University staff who have got a bite of the bread, eagerly look forward to seeing the great pet project officially opened for business.


The University bookshop Management has written to inform the University community of their improved services as it concerns Stationeries, Books, Notes, Envelopes, Gift items and many more at highly attractive prices. They also promised to meet orders no matter the quantity and quality.

Prof. Ogu presented a paper at the Symposium titled, “Qualitative Study of Physical Activity Participation among Deaf/Dumb and Visually Impaired in three Schools in Nigeria: Facilitators and Barriers”.


Worthy of note, is the fact that Prof. Ogu has been invited to participate in the International Olympic Conference for supporting the marvellous success of Olympic Winter Games to be held in February, 2018, “Pyeongchange 2018 Olympic Winter Games and Global Sports Relations” at Alpensia Resort, pyeongchange, Gangwondo, South Korea.

Eating plenty of fruits and vegetables may reduce the risk of many diseases, including heart disease, high blood pressure and some cancers. Vitamins and minerals that help us feel healthy and energized are gotten from fruits and vegetables.  It is important to take vegetables because:



*   Most vegetables are naturally low in fat and calories

*   They are important sources of many nutrients, including potassium, dietary fiber, folate (folic acid), vitamin A and Vitamin C.

*   Diets that are rich in potassium may help to maintain healthy blood pressure, reduce risk of heart disease and stroke, lower risk of eye and digestive problems.


Fruits and vegetables contain fibre.  This can help control cholesterol levels and keep blood sugar levels steady.  Having low intake of fruits and vegetables is estimated to cause about 10% of cancers of the digestive system, 31% of heart disease and 11% of stroke.


There is no doubt that eating fruit is important to our overall health and well-being.

–    Fruits should be eaten alone or with other fruits;

–    Fruits should be taken on an empty stomach for easy processing of nutrients, fibre and simple sugar;

–    The best time to eat fruits is either first thing in the morning or mid-morning i.e. in-between breakfast and lunch.
