Vice Chancellor of the Federal University of Agriculture (FUAM), Makurdi, Prof E.I Kucha has hailed Director-General of the Defence Industries Corporation of Nigeria (DICON), Maj.-Gen. Bamidele Ogunkale, for identifying with his alma mater in his quest for solutions to some challenges facing the corporation.
Prof. Kucha spoke yesterday when General Ogunkale and his technical team visited the university’s Engineering Department to seek solution to some problems identified in DICON’s Ordnance Factories Production Lines.
The vice chancellor said the university would support Ogunkale to succeed in his quest to reposition DICON to an enviable position. He promised to raise a technical team to visit DICON’s Ordnance Factories for an on-the-spot assessment.
General Ogunkale said it was imperative for him to partner the science and technology academia, having partnered industrialists and manufacturers of military products.
He noted that his scale of preference made him arrive at the choice of FUAM because of its requisite skill, manpower and wealth of experience, premised on his past knowledge as an ex-student.
“We came to Federal University of Agriculture’s Engineering Department because we have plans to reactivate some of our factories and your Research and Development Department is our main focus. You have the wealth of experience needed.
