Receiving the books on behalf of the University, Acting Head, Department of Petroleum and Gas Engineering, Dr Sunday Ikiensikimama, thanked the PTDF for the gesture which he described as worthwhile, assuring the Fund that both staff and students would make judicious use of the books to explore more knowledge.
