Two Junior Staff Honoured For Diligence, Thank Mgt

Two Caretakers who were among staff honoured by Management of the University for their punctuality and diligence, Mrs Cecilia Adolphus and Joana Owujie, have expressed gratitude to the Vice Chancellor, Professor Ndowa Lale for the unexpected honour done them.

The two ladies were amongst those conferred with the University's Best Performing Staff Award by Management of the University during the Chancellor's Dinner/Award Night. The Award Night was a major part of activities that marked the combined 32nd Convocation Ceremony of the University which held on Friday, March 29 and Saturday, March 30, 2019.

The women who are still celebrating their recognition for rendering dedicated services to the University, heaped praises on the Management of the University for considering them worthy of the award, even when they did not lobby for it.

Expressing their delight in separate interviews with UniPort News Correspondents on Wednesday, May 15, 2019, Mrs Adolphus said she never envisaged that her contributions to the growth of the University would be recognised and rewarded at the highest levels of administration. “I was very happy to receive the Distinguished Staff Award from the Vice Chancellor of the University. I am always at my duty post at 7.00am and always ready to carry out any other duty that may be assigned to me. I treat students in the Units I worked as my own biological children,” the award recipient said.

On her part, Mrs Joana Owujie told our Correspondents that she did her best in the various places she was deployed to work. “I was just doing my work to the best of my ability without knowing that my effort has been noticed by the Management. I did my work diligently and I made sure that there were no lapses anywhere I was posted. I report to work early, clean the classrooms on a regular basis to make them conducive for lectures. I never knew I was being watched. I am very proud to receive the Distinguished Staff Award from the University and my prayer is that God should bless and reward all those He used to make this honour possible,” she said.

The two awardees who are presently serving in the offices of the Deans, Faculty of Humanities and Pharmaceutical Sciences, respectively, advised other staff to take their work seriously in addition to being polite to students and other clients of the University.
