Emeka Ezeh, Head of Communications, Enugu Electricity Distribution PLC, EEDC, presented the cheque to the Dean, Faculty of Pharmaceutical Sciences, Prof Amaechi Atama, on Offor’s behalf at the Faculty building, Nsukka on Wednesday.

The gift followed the department’s appeal to Offor for assistance to equip and furnish its Digital Anatomy Laboratory to meet up with global best practices.

Reacting to the gesture, the Head of Department, Dr Maxwell Adibe, thanked Offor for coming to their aid.

“The Faculty has been going after good spirited individuals for support, to drive fund as government alone can no longer cater for the needs of the institutions, and we extended our request to Sir Emeka Offor and he granted us our request,” he said.
