University of Ibadan Alumni Association
Enugu State Branch



An invitation which was recently made by the University of Ibadan Alumni Association Enugu State Branch was the introduction of Pep-talk to its monthly meetings. It is conceptualized as a pre-meeting event designed to quench the intellectual thirst of members and widen their horizon of knowledge. In format, it is a 30 minutes event – 20 minutes of talk and 10 minutes of an interactive session. The talk in delivered to members by a nominated resource person who may or may not be an alumnus of the University of Ibadan. Its focus is on any topic which in the opinion of the chosen resource person will possibly be of general interest to the members.

To drive this event, the Association constituted a 3-man Pep-talk Committee chaired by an Alumnus, an academic and eminent surgeon, Professor Nene Elsie Obianyo. Other members of the committee include, the branch Legal Adviser, Barrister Fidelis Mbadugha and a former UIAA national publicity secretary, an ex-officio member of the branch Exco and  web editor of the branch website, Vin Okonkwo.

Given the favourable reaction emanating from members about the Pep-talk, there is no iota of doubt that it is a welcome development in the life of the Association. Members are looking forward to it at each monthly meeting with keen interest and expectation.

The task before the Pep-talk committee is to sustain it.

It is also levied against capital gains, capital transfer and petroleum profits...Read More

The Surge of Thrombotic Stroke
- Dr C. C. Nweze

I am strongly persuaded to share these few words with you for the benefit of all of us. You are all aware I had a stroke on October 10 2013. I am now recovering. The experience I have gone through is what 1 cannot wish anyone no matter how evil that one is. This is what has informed this sharing.
A stroke occurs when the blood supply to part of the brain is interrupted or severely reduced, depriving brain tissue of oxygen and other nutrients. Within minutes, brain cells begin to die. Strokes are called either "Haemorrhagic Stroke" when caused by rupture of a brain artery, due mainly to hypertension, or "Ischaemic Stroke" when brain artery is blocked. Ischaemic type is called "Embolic Stroke" when a blood clot (or other embolus) from elsewhere causes the blockage in the brain artery; and when the blockage is caused by a local clot-forming process in the brain artery it is called a "Thrombotic Stroke"...Read More
