The management of Akwa Ibom Polytechnic, under the leadership of Dr. Moses Umobong, has commended the initiator of Daniel Evans Community Service Projects (DECSP) for his prompt intervention in sensitizing the polytechnic against community transmission of COVID-19.
This was contained in a release duly signed by the registrar of the polytechnic, Mary Ndah, and handed to Daniel Evans Eshett.
The statement reads: “Sequel to your Community Development Initiative titled Community Service Sensitization for Prevention of Coronavirus (COVID-19) Transmission in Akwa Ibom State Polytechnic, by your organization, in which you produced a flex containing the safety protocol for the institution, management expressed appreciation and directed that you be commended for this onerous task.
“Accordingly, you are hereby commended for a job well done, even as your name and contributions shall remain indelible in the records of the polytechnic.”
Eshett, who is also a chief lecturer in the department of Mass Communication in the institution, expressed optimism and pledged his organization’s unwavering commitment to do more for the institution, the state and nation at large. He noted that it was part of his community service to the development and sustainability of not just the institution, but the communities in which students and staff are drawn from.
He lauded the rector of the institution, Umobong, for giving an enabling room for development to thrive and thanked him for openly embracing personal initiatives of staff and other visiting organizations.
Recalled that DECSP had on the resumption of schools after COVID-19 lockdown was lifted, made available the COVID-19 safety protocols in all the corners of the institution, while sensitizing students on the need to prevent community spread of the disease.
