Dr. I.H. Isidienu, FCAI

Registrar

 

 

Nnamdi Azikiwe University Awka has held its 37th Inaugural lecture which was delivered by a professor of organic Chemistry, Prof. Mabel Akpuaka,.

 

While delivering her lecture, titled:“Organic chemists: Making molecules through syntheses and obtaining them from nature for the benefit of the society”, Prof. Akpuaka revealed that about 40% of all modern drugs that are in use are developed from the natural products for the benefit of society. Also, she noted that although synthetic drugs have progressed to the level that natural product drugs can be overlooked, and developments have proved that natural products still remain the bedrock of any drug discovery process.

 

According to her, “Modern pharmacy and medicine are indebted to nature because an impressive number of modern drugs have been derived from them. The level of development of any country is adjudged by the number of chemical industries of that country, opining that the Federal Government of Nigeria should make use of the technocrats in sciences and chemical engineering to take charge of these sectors of the economy, so that the chemicals produced would end importation.”

 

Prof. Akpuaka further explained that Chemistry revolves around activities of man and his environment. Chemistry is everywhere, its principles and ideas are used to produce chemicals from which all manner of materials and consumer goods are manufactured. Examples include; the conversion of crude oils or petroleum into solvents such as petrol, kerosene, diesel, bitumen or asphalt for road surfacing; conversion of coal into coke, coal tar from which other chemicals are produced are all chemistry at work. She further encouraged chemistry researchers to be serious with their studies because chemistry research requires great hard work and diligence.

 

Earlier in his speech, the Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Joseph Ahaneku, FAS described the inaugural lecturer as an epitome of knowledge and true academic who has mentored several persons in the field. He later installed Prof. Mabel Ukachi Akpuaka as the 37th inaugural lecturer of Nnamdi Azikiwe University.

 

In his vote of thanks, Prof. Austin Eboatu thanked everyone who made it a point of duty to come for the lecture, while expressing hope that they gained from the wealth of knowledge of the inaugural lecturer.

The Chairman of the occasion and the MD/CEO Anambra Broadcasting Service, (ABS), Nze Uche Nwora in his opening remarks said ABS is excited to be part of the programme. He welcomed everyone present, while expressing hope that the training would go a long way in achieving its aim.

The Vice-Chancellor, Prof. J. E. Ahaneku who was represented by the DVC academic, Prof. Charles Esimone welcomed the participants to UNIZIk. He commended Prof. Okunna for championing capacity building through such programmes.

Prof. Esimone expressed hope that the effort would bring about curriculum change that would promote child’s rights.

 

Speaking during the event, the Dean, Faculty of Social Sciences and the Convener of the seminar, Prof. Stella C. Okunna said that the seminar was intended for a micro group organization of a team that can mainstream the outcome arrived at the seminar in their area of work schedule. According to her, women and children are relatively invisible in the society. She urged that the participants should think out ways in their various departments on how the topic for the day can be built in to the curriculum. Prof. Okunna stated that children should be given a voice, and teachers and the media have the opportunity to do that, because they interact more often with them, and the media is powerful in setting agenda for the government and the society to think about. She noted that it was the reason the seminar was intended for HODs of the Department of Mass Communication of different tertiary institutions and media personnel.

 

In her presentation, the Communication Officer of UNICEF, Mrs. Ijeoma Onwuoha-Ogwe said that UNICEF is the leading advocate for children’s rights in more than 190 countries, to help children survive and thrive from childhood through adolescence. She listed their objectives which include; (1.) taking  advantage of the seminar to press for an expanded use of the curriculum by tertiary institutions adopting simplified and harmonized approach to the teaching curriculum, (2.) familiarizing participants with the guidelines on equity focused child rights based approach, to report the child, (3.) sharing experience and agreeing on mechanisms for monitoring progress and results following the training of trainers workshop after which awareness is created and more schools buy into the mainstreaming process.

 

The Resource Person, Dr. Chidi Ezinwa from ESUT gave details of the global situation of the child. He opined that child’s rights issues are under reported in the media, as most often there isn’t a specialized reports on children. He presented the media as an agent of social change on child rights, by setting meaningful agenda, identifying and promoting critical issues on child rights, as its one of its obligations.
