The deputy provost further solicited the support of multinational organizations, organized private sector, foundations, philanthropic individuals and well-spirited Nigerians to support the college to meet its demands.

He said that the college had organized a historical event which actually was the $20m fundraising dinner and award night for some distinguished alumni of the college.

Ebuehi said the college decided to organize the show by raising the funds, which would be used for the development of CMUL in the areas of infrastructure, man power training, research, teaching and other essential services.

“Our college is currently 60 years old and there are quite a lot of things we need to do to bring back the past glory of the college.

“Over the years, a lot of research and teaching equipment we use for teaching, providing services have become outdated.

“So, time has come whereby we need resources to get modern equipment which will power high quality research, teaching and training of our students across various departments in the college,” he said.

The awards cut across post-humous, distinguished guest of honour, outstanding leadership, meritorious and outstanding excellence awards.
