By Sam Kpenu


Acting Director of the School of Basic Studies (SBS), Dr Josiah Hart, has recounted his achievements in the first six months in office with a pledge to do more in the remaining part of his tenure to reposition the Unit for greater service delivery to stakeholders.
This, according to him, would be done through working in collaboration with the Management and the Parents' Forum to develop capacity, encourage scholarship, provides local solutions by instituting endowment Fund to assist indigent students on the programme.
Dr Hart, who stated this while exchanging views with a correspondent of UniPort News on Thursday, June 3, 2021, also revealed that the newly-inaugurated 'Basic Studies Parents' Forum' would stimulate scholarship and attract high impact developmentoriented programmes to the school to sustain its leading role amongst its contemporaries in the country. “Since my assumption of office as the Acting Director on September 24, 2020, there has been an upsurge in students' enrollment in the programme after its sharp decline in the last few years. This was made possible through determination, hard work and commitment,” Dr Hart stated. The Acting Director said his vision is to take the Unit to greater heights in such a way that it can be compared to what obtains in similar institutions around the world. He promised to provide the enabling environment for the students on the programme to give of their best. “The programme is well on course. We have lit up the offices and classrooms to create conducive environment for teaching and learning. We have now created two new classrooms of 250- seater capacity each, constructed a library and reading room, purchased and installed interactive smart board in the auditorium, installed Close Circuit Television (CCTV), purchased and installed three 1.5HP Air conditioners in the classrooms to make learning and teaching interesting, while plans are in top gear to set up a computer laboratory,” he disclosed. Dr Hart, who lectures in the Department of Human Anatomy and was the immediate past Coordinator of Post-UTME Programme, expressed his commitment to expose the students to innovativeness in their approaches to learning and leisure. He however, lamented the paucity of fund to carry out more development programmes for enhanced service delivery.
