Dr. John Emaimo, Rector of the Federal College of Dental Technology and Therapy, Enugu (FEDCODTTEN), has been honored by the Association of Southern Nigeria Students with the Most Outstanding Rector of the Year Award in Nigeria (ASONIS)
Emaimo was chosen after the committee reviewed the actions and profiles of the numerous rectors it received, according to the group.
Comrade Chinedu Edeh, President of ASONIS, said Emaimo’s award was decided by over 60 selected Southern Nigeria student leaders from the three geopolitical zones.
It’s customary for ASONIS to choose people based on what they’re doing now and what they’re capable of doing next, because we can forecast what they’ll do next based on what they’ve done before. There were many names suggested, but Dr. Emaimo stands out as a parent, mentor, and brilliant administrator who has done so much for the Dental College. He was chosen by ASONIS because of his progressive views.
Emaimo said he had no idea that the college’s tendencies were being observed and noted while he was in charge.
He defined the college as a student-friendly establishment where neither academic nor non-academic staff would be engaged if students were not present in the first place.
This college has progressed from the awarding of Higher Diplomas to the awarding of degrees. This is Enugu State’s first federal degree-awarding institution, and it will become just a degree-awarding institution in the future, with the college focusing on crucial areas of need, according to Emaimo.
