The Vice-Chancellor, who was represented by the Director Admission, Mr. Noble O. Onukwue noted that the university applauds the benefactors and stands to welcome individuals and other non-governmental organisations to support the University Health Clinic because of its enormous and huge capital requirement that cannot be left in the hands of government alone.

The leader of the team, Dr. Dike reiterated that they were encouraged and moved to assist Africans because of the high level of poverty and disease ravaging the continent which require the United Nations urgent attention. “We want AE-FUNAI to be partakers of our generosity. We did it to others and must do it to you”, he said.
