Nigeria’s first private university, the Igbinedion University Okada in Edo State, has commenced the process of manufacturing Light Weight Electric Minibus.
Professor Lawrence Ezemonye, the Vice-Chancellor of the university, made this on Friday at the 21st convocation of the university, describing it as “the first by any university in the country”.
According to Ezemonye, the design and fabrication that would lead to the production of the vehicles were ongoing.
“Research, development and innovation are critical to scholarship and knowledge production.
“The university’s efforts in this regard received a boost with the ongoing design and fabrication of Light Weight Electric Minibus, which will ultimately lead to the manufacture of light weight vehicles.”
“There will be periodic public lectures at various phases of the project, while the engineering students are expected to come up with research topics at the undergraduate and postgraduate levels relevant to the project,” Ezemonye said.
