The Council, Management and Consulting Unit of the Institute of Management and Technology (IMT), Enugu, on Tuesday, presented a solar-powered automated soap, water and sanitizer dispenser developed by the institution, to Governor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi, as its contribution to the Enugu State government’s efforts in ensuring observation of the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) protocol for containment of the spread of the Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19).
Presenting the dispenser to the governor at the Government House, Enugu, the institution, led by the Chairman of the Governing Council, Deaconess Ifeoma Nwobodo and the Rector, Prof. Austin Nweze, said it has the capacity to mass produce the product if given the support.
Gov. Ugwuanyi, who commended IMT Enugu for the wonderful initiative, said this is the kind of relationship that should exist between government and institutions in the area of research.
He, therefore, assured the institution of his administration’s support and cooperation towards the success of the project.
