Ojukwu University To Revive 145 Moribund Firms In Anambra.

"This year we took a look at the barriers of innovation in our 5th National Conference and since we have identified those barriers and proffered solutions to them we are going into partnership with the private sector through our innovations so that we present those  innovations  that the sector would use to improve energy generation, sustainability and consistency "


"So many small and medium scale Industries have closed down and some are suffering or struggling to to keep their heads afloat in view of the harsh economic situation in the country "


"We have them in Onitsha, Nnewi,Awka and parts of Ekwulobia and this has put a lot of people out of jobs and that means increasing crime rate in our state "


"With what we are doing against next year the firms in the energy sector have indicated interest in partnering with us to achieve this and we are targeting about 145 small and medium scale Industries that would bounce back to life" he said.


The award ceremony was part of the activities marking the Faculty" 5th Convention which started last week Wednesday and a total of seventeen persons were recipients of the award including those in the private sector.
