The Edo State Governor, Mr. Godwin Obaseki, will on Saturday (today), commission the Senator Daisy Danjuma hostel for female students at the Ugbowo campus of the University of Benin.
Public Relations Officer (PRO) of the University, Mrs Benedicta Ehanire, disclosed this in an invitation message sent out Friday night, on behalf of the Vice Chancellor, Prof. Lilian Salami.
METROWATCH gathered that the hostel was donated by General T.Y Danjuma (RTD), former Defence Minister, through the T.Y. Danjuma Foundation, on behalf of his wife, Daisy Danjuma.
â€œThe Vice Chancellor, Professor Lilian Salami invites you to the grand commissioning of the Senator Daisy Danjuma hostel for girls, graciously donated by General T.Y. Danjuma, GCON,â€ the statement reads in part.
â€œThe ceremony will be performed by His Excellency, Godwin Obaseki, Governor of Edo State,â€ the UNIBEN spokesperson and sister to Senator Daisy Danjuma, Mrs Benedicta Ehanire added.
The UNIBEN spokesperson, Mrs Benedicta Ehanire told journalists that she attracted the female hostel worth 500 million Naira from Gen. T.Y. Danjuma, her in-law, for the Vice Chancellor.
According to her, this was after she recommended the in-law to the University Management for a honorary doctorate degree recognition during the last convocation ceremony of the institution held in 2021.
This was further collaborated by her close ally, Ven. David Osazee Egbenusi, Chaplain of the UNIBEN's All Saints Chapel, who described Ehanire as the â€œbackboneâ€ of the Salami administration, and an â€˜untouchable oneâ€™ at that, even though, according to him, much recognition is not accorded her.
Meanwhile, METROWATCH learned that Governor Obaseki is expected to perform the ceremony for stone laying of the second Senator Daisy Danjuma hostel for girls, which is equally worth 500 million Naira, later today.
METROWATCH recalls that the UNIBEN VC had in March last year performed the groundbreaking ceremony for the construction of the two three-floor hostels for female students, at the Ugbowo campus of the institution.
