The Emeka Offor foundation has donated about 1,000 books to the Federal College of Education (FCE) Obudu to assist both staff and students in their studies and research.

The SUN Newspapers reports that the Chairman, Governing council of the institution, Mr. Anthony Obi who presented the books to the institution said the council approached the foundation for assistance in a bid to help check the depleting stock of teaching and reading materials in the college.

“This is the first time the college has got this kind of gesture of partnering with non-governmental organization towards achieving its core mandate,” Obi said and pointed out that the college is noted for research and therefore, needs to boost the quality of education offered.

“We will utilize it maximally for the benefit of staff and students,” Obi said, explaining that the books are in different fields of studies and urged the management to explore other ways of attracting other foundations and organizations to come in and contribute in promoting education excellence.

The Provost of the college, Dr. James Ejue commended Obi for facilitating the donation. He said the books would boost the preparation for National Universities Commission (NUC) accreditation coming soon.

“The policy thrust of (this) administration is to encourage mutual beneficial partnership with agencies, organization and individuals with a view to accelerating development as well as achieving the institution’s mandate,” Ejue said, adding that the effort of the present administration has paid off with the donation with plans to reach out to other agencies and organizations for further assistance.
