CHALLENGES

  1. Increased running cost of INRES as a result of the current economic realities
  2. Getting students to pay school charges to INRES because of the current economic realities is putting a lot of strain on our finances.
  3. Accommodation space is grossly inadequate, INRES needs space to develop infrastructure to meet the ever increasing student population, laboratories and office accommodation.

 

 

RECOMMENDATIONS

  1. University Management should approve a site for INRES to develop infrastructure for classrooms, laboratories and office spaces.
  2. The University Management should sustain the policy of part payment of school charges/fees

 

CONCLUSIONS

 

INRES is poised to surmount all challenges with renewed vitality pursuing the vision of the founding fathers, aims and objectives

UNIVERSITY OF PORT HARCOURT

CENTRE FOR LOGISTICS & TRANSPORT STUDIES (CELTRAS)

ANNUAL REPORT

INTRODUCTION:
The University of Port Harcourt was founded among other things to contribute to national
development, self-reliance and unity through the advancement and propagation of knowledge,
and humanity.
This University has been achieving this not only through the conventional Faculties and
Departments but through specialized Centers and Institutes. As is the case in many other
universities all over the world, specialized Centres and/or Institutes focus specifically on aspects
of socio-economic phenomena which gives the university concerned an advantage in promoting
the existential realities of its immediate and wider environment. In addition to the academic and
practical objectives of such Centers/Institutes, they have added value by generating some funds
for the University. Against this background, the University of Port Harcourt established the
CENTRE FOR LOGISTICS AND TRANSPORT STUDIES (CELTRAS) in 2012 following a
memorandum of understanding with the University as approved by the Senate.
RATIONALE and PHILOSOPHY:
The Centre shall be made up of five programmes in tandem with the five modal agencies in
transportation viz: Road, Rail Maritime/Inland waterways, Air and Pipeline transportation
instead. This is to produce graduates in a specific mode of transportation of generalists in
transportation. Moreover, most donors/sponsors are usually more comfortable with identifying
with the specific modal agency in their relationship with the Centre.
The Centre for Logistics and Transport Studies will offer that desire to improve on the general
absence of proper planning, coordination and efficient management of logistics activities in both
public and private sectors of the economy by preparing and training qualified transport and
logistics professionals.
The different areas of specialization reflect and emphasize the dynamic nature of the
programmes while allowing for the flexibility of the graduates to move from one
transport/logistics-oriented job to another.
VISION:
CELTRAS envisages the professionalization of the logistics and transport sector of the Nigerian
economy such that in the not-too-distant future, the transport and logistics sectors of the Nigerian
economy will be managed by well-trained and better-qualified persons.

MISSION:
The mission of CELTRAS is to produce qualified professionals in Transport Planning and
Logistics/Supply Chain Management, for the Nigerian economy in particular and Africa in
general. The idea is to provide adequate knowledge and practical skills for understanding and

solving transportation and logistics and supply chain problems in Nigeria as well as generate
international support in funding for intellectual exchanges through conveyances, seminars and
publications.

ACHIEVEMENTS
The Centre was among the Institutes/Centres hit hard by the protracted university-based unions’
industrial action in the area of student enrollment. Notwithstanding the challenge above, the
centre recorded laudable achievements within the periods under review. These include:
 The Centre, to contribute its own quota to the mission and vision of the University in the
area of development, purchased and installed ten (10) solar-powered flood lights and four
(4) solar-powered street lights along Ghana-Ama/Gambia-Ama area of the University.
 In our quest to migrate fully to e-learning in the Centre, we executed a multi-million-
naira project to have the Centre connected to an unlimited and uninterrupted network
through the World Bank ACE-CEFOR of the University of Port Harcourt.
 Installation of E-Learning/Learning Management System (LMS) Portal/Automated
Admissions System worth over eight million Naira (₦8,000,000.00) which is at 98 per
cent completion with features and Capabilities including in-house Custom Learning
Management Platform (LMS) hosted on the cloud, automated admissions application
system developed to suit all forms of blended and E-Learning as well as full distance
learning capabilities (handled by SpeedLink Nigeria Limited).
 Recall that the NIMASA Building including the brand-new Toyota Corolla and Hilux
Pick-up Van were attracted by then Director, Professor Osi Akpoghomeh. Through a
series of communications between the Centre/University and the Director-General of the
Nigerian Maritime Administration and Safety Agency on the completion of the NIMASA
(CELTRAS) building which the construction work was stalled for quite sometime now,
the University received cheering news that the contractor has been mobilized back to the
site and to complete the project within 24 months period from December 2022
 In the area of academics, the Centre recorded more than sixty (60) PGD, seventy (70)
MSc, and twelve (12) PhD graduands respectively during the just-concluded 33 rd
Convocation (combined) held on 2 nd and 3 rd December 2022.
 To tell how strategic the Centre is in the area of economic development of Nigeria, the
Centre played host to a Panel from the Federal University, Lokoja, Kogi State who were
at the Centre to understudy it with a view to establishing it in their school.
 Replaced a non-serviceable multi-purpose address system with a modern and digitalized
one.
 Purchased executive table and chair for the Director
 A modern Boardroom with state-of-art facilities like a 12-seater Boardroom table and
chairs, 65 inches smart television to facilitate defences, seminars/proposals and electronic
gadgets for zoom webinars.
 Internet-enabled multipurpose digital HP LaserJet photocopier.

 Recruited three (3) temporary/ad-hoc staff – Office Clerk, Cleaner/Messenger and driver
with reasonable monthly allowances.
RESEARCH PUBLICATIONS/INNOVATIONS
 In the area of research, we have produced ground-breaking research in the Maritime
industry and have to our credit two (2) journals which the Centre floated last year.
Presently, we have published two (2) series of journals and will be releasing the next
volumes (Volume 3) before the year run out. The Journals are International Journal of
Transportation Research, and International Journal of Transport, Environment and
Society.
CHALLENGES
As a self-funding Centre, among the major challenges of the Centre are, but not limited to,
paucity of funds to open study areas close to the majority of our applicant’s catchment towns like
Onne in Rivers State, Abuja and Lagos State, lack of adequate staff seconded from the
university. Accommodation which shall soon be a thing of the past)
RECOMMENDATIONS
We recommend that the Centre be supported to have a study outlet close to the applicants for the
sale of admission forms and studies in addition to propagating the good name of the Centre nay
the University of Port Harcourt
CONCLUSION
We cannot end this report without appreciating the University Management for their continued
support and provision of enabling environment to run the Centre and the programmes. We shall
keep reaching out to good-spirited individuals and agencies for more support for the University.
Thank you, sir.

4 Challenges
a) Equipment and Network
Infrastructure

b) Need for professional staffing.
c) Power supply / interruptions d) Dire need of programmers.
e) Adequate / Huge Bandwidth f) Acquisition of Laptops / thin clients for training and CBT.
g) Manpower Development h) Paucity of funds is a major challenge militating against
the expansion and continuous maintenance of computer
network, equipment, and computer systems.

i) Expansion of Internet
Connectivity

j) Lack of dedicated project vehicle to carry out regular
monitoring of Telecoms Cabinet and NOCs on campus,
and for use during project implementation.

k) Replacement of Power
Generating Supply Set

5 Recommendations
I wish to present some recommendations as specified in the challenges as follows:
1) More systems are needed for the CBT Centre. Most of the systems we have are becoming obsolete
and a number of them are malfunctioning due to wear and tear. ICTC cannot fund it.
2) More solar and inverter infrastructures should be provided. It is our hope that the forth coming –

2022 TETfund Zonal Intervention Allocation, which the University applied for Approval-In-
Principle, for the ICT infrastructure project will address this substantially.

3) The 250KVA Generator currently in use is malfunctioning due to old age. It requires replacement
of a bigger capacity.
4) We are in dire need of technical staff, such as Programmers, Web developers, network, etc.
5) Equipment and Network Infrastructure are required to reactivate and expand our services /
Internet access to all on campus.

UNIVERSITY OF PORT HARCOURT

CENTRE FOR PEACE AND SECURITY STUDIES

(CPSS)

ANNUAL REPORT

December, 2022.

HISTORY
Centre for Ethnic and Conflict Studies (CENTECS) was established in 2003 (and became
functional in 2005) as a unit of the Faculty of Social Sciences. CENTECS is a bold initiative by
the University of Port Harcourt to revive and sustain the research culture in the University
system. It is already common knowledge that little or no research activity is going on in our
universities as a result of long years of under-funding and the consequent agitation, in form of
industrial strike actions by university lecturers. It is also true that the conventional university
academic Departments and Faculties have for a long period of time, ceased to provide effective
platforms for organising any meaningful research work. Thus, extra departmental structures in
the form of research Centres’ or Institutes have become the new planks for the rebirth of
purposeful academic work. It is against this background that the Centre for Ethnic and Conflict
Studies was established. CENTECS meets this need by conducting researches that provide
evidence-based information towards addressing the problems of conflict in the Niger- Delta,
Nigeria, Africa and beyond. Between 2016 and 2021 CENTECS was merged with the Centre for
Gender Studies. Both Centres became Centre for Conflict and Gender Studies (CCGS). In March
2021, the two Centres were demerged. Considering the need to proffer intellectual responses to
security issues that are currently threating the fabrics of national, regional and global integration,
the Centre has been registered as Centre for Peace and Security Studies (CPSS) with effect from
March, 2021.
AIM AND PHILOSOPHY OF THE PROGRAMME
 To make CPSS a Centre of excellence in peace and security studies through cutting edge
teaching and research.
 To transfer knowledge in peace and security studies through teaching, research and
workshops.
 Develop our students’ understanding of peace and security studies problems and their
consequences for social life in Nigeria and global society and equip them with skills and
competences for managing the phenomena.
The subsisting and currently heightened insecurity in Nigeria and its attendant socio-economic
consequences are glaring. In recognition of the increasing prevalence of peace and security
challenges in Nigeria and the global community, the Nigerian Universities Commission (NUC)
has instituted Peace and Conflict Resolution as course to be taught in all Nigerian Universities.
Domiciled in the Social Sciences, the course addresses such issues as Ethnic/Religion/Political
and Economic Conflicts-Peace-building and sustainable security. The Department of Peace and
Security Studies has not been established in many Universities including the University of Port
Harcourt. The Executive Masters in Peace and Security Studies proposed by this Centre offers
personnel in the armed and quasi armed forces and private security organizations to update

qualifications and knowledge in contemporary peace and security issues and enhance their
proficiency in their respective professions.
Our Programmes
The Centre inherited two programmes from the demerging. These were; PGD and Masters in
Peace and Conflict Studies. Following the change of name of the Centre, we have introduced
new courses which reflect recent issues in peace and security in Nigeria and the global
community. We have therefore increased courses to;
 PGD Peace and Security Studies 1yr
 Masters in Peace and Security Studies 1yr
 Masters in Criminology and Police Psychology 1yr
 Masters in Security Management 1yr
 Masters in Cyber Security 1yr
 PH. D in Peace and Security Studies 2yrs

The Centre also offers short-term training programmes in;
 Enterprise Security Management (ESRM)
 Business Continuity Management (BCLE 1500)
 Security Communication and Report Writing
 Security and Defensive Driving for Drivers
 Hostile Environment Awareness Training (HEAT)
 Security Risk Assessment and Management
 Information Security

 Security Budgeting
 Security Operations Management
 CCTV and Control Room Operations
 Intelligence Gathering and Analysis
Future Plans
Our foremost objective is to develop this Centre into an Institute that will house new Centres
such as Leadership and Security and International Crime and Security Management.
Furthermore, the Institute will introduce undergraduate courses in conflict management. We
shall also establish lecture Centres for the Armed Forces in Port-Harcourt.
Challenges
Accommodation is our biggest challenge. We lack space to accommodate some of the equipment
acquired by the centre or donated by friends of the Centre.

thought and action of the then Dr. C.N. Nzewunwa and Emeritus Prof. E.J. Alagoa.
With the approval from the NUC, the University of Port Harcourt Senate and the
Board of Faculty of Humanities where both staff above were, the Museum was
officially birthed. It was assigned the number backing it so to have a national legal
right to become established and operate accordingly.
The museum has an administrative structure with its Director at its apex, followed
by the Curator, the Museum Superintendent, the Museum laboratory attendants, the
Secretary to the Director, a few other administrative officials including the clarks,
messengers, drivers, and cleaner.

The museum serves as laboratory for many programmes in and outside the
University of Port Harcourt. It helps in organizing field activities e.g in
Archaeology, Sociology, Fine Art and Design, Religious And Cultural Studies,
Hospitality and Tourism and other related discipline. It holds workshops,
conferences periodically targeted at certain academic programmes in the university
and beyond.
The museum has robust communication channels through which it reaches the
wilder audience on its programme of activities from time to time.
The museum is constantly related to by the Federal Government. This was recently
observe as the National Commission for Museum and Monumen’st (NCMM) the
Director General sent a delegation requesting to know how it is faring within the
university.
The university of Port Harcourt Museum is not a degree awarding institution but

under the blessed scrutiny of the Quality Assurance and Quality Control Services.
Not only that, there are the usual administrative checks and balances within its
daily operations to ensure that the best services are rendered.
The museum is multi-faceted and has in such capacity served the Nigeria Police,
diverse agencies in the Armed Forces of Nigeria and the parastatals, communities,
government at different level, social groups in the coordinate areas of its operations
and more. It has in this way helped in educating, enlightening and adding value to
these entities in the overall wellbeing and development of our dear country Nigeria
and more.
With regards to Community Service, the museum has since its inception played the
pivotal role in reaching out to communities around the university near and far with
the cultural awareness and promotion for positive behaviourism.

3

five years through which it intends to deliver goods services and productivity.
University of Port Harcourt Museum has contributed to the growth and
development of University of Port Harcourt, Rivers State and some other states
such as; Sokoto, Kebbi, Plateau, Abia, Imo, Bayelsa, Akwa Ibom, Cross River,
Bornu, Kaduna, Kogi, Edo, Oyo, Kwara, Benue, Anambra, Delta, Ebonyi, and
Taraba in the ways of excavations and other archaeological and anthropological
research activities in these palaces that have added values to the socio-economic
development.
The museum needs support from the management in transferring useful staff to it
and aiding the renovation of its old building complex which has been partially
damaged by the earlier occupants and the vagaries of age and the programme of
activities it has positioned itself to achieve.
The entire Management and Staff of the University of Port Harcourt Museum wish
to felicitate with the Vice Chancellor and Management of University of Port
Harcourt as we are happy serving in this regard.

Complement of the Season!

FOURTH QUARTER REPORT, 2022

REGIONAL CENTRE FOR BIOTECHNOLOGY AND BIORESOURCES RESEARCH
(RCBBR) / NABDA SOUTH-SOUTH ZONAL CENTRE OF EXCELLENCE (SSCoE)

1

ANNUAL REPORT OF REGIONAL CENTRE FOR BIOTECHNOLOGY AND
BIORESOURCES RESEARCH/NABDA SOUTH-SOUTH ZONAL CENTRE OF EXCELLENCE
Introduction
The Department of Plant Science and Biotechnology (PSB), prior to relocation to
Ofirima Complex in the University Park, had a poorly established Botanic Garden in
Choba Park. This Botanic Garden was lost to Choba when the community recovered a
major portion of it for the Olobo Community Secondary School, Choba . The
Department, through the effort of a dedicated committee of six Academic Staff
Chaired by the then incumbent Head of Department got a site (about 7.8 ha) at the
forested Conservation area and Buffer zone at the University Park (of University of
Port Harcourt) allocated to the Department in October, 2002 for use as Botanic
Garden.
After this approval, the Botanic Garden was reorganized into the Regional Centre for
Bioresources and Biotechnology Research (RCBBR), which was composed of three
main parts viz: the Botanical Garden with a Recreation Centre and the Conservation
Area. This Centre was intended to drive hightech research in biotechnology and
biodiversity conservation and contribute to financial and international profile and
well-being of the Department and University of Port Harcourt.
The Regional Centre was designed to hold a Conference Centre, a Horticultural
Centre, Recreation Centre, Botanic garden and conservation area. It has
swampland/forest with a network of ponds and suspended access ways running
through the garden. The Recreation Centre was expected to hold recreation facilities
for relaxation and fund raising. The Conservation Area (about 3.6 ha) was designated
in the University’s Master Plan as Conservation Area, includes a swamp forest,
rainforest and adjoining arboretum which partly constitutes a rubber estate.
The Intended Benefits
The Regional Centre for Bioresources and Biotechnology Research was to:
i) Serve as a coordinating Centre for field studies in biodiversity conservation and
biotechnology research
ii) Generate fund for its maintenance, further development and growth into a World
Class Centre of Excellence
iii) Offer sites for protection and conservation of endemic and endangered species
iv) Serve as a ready source of specimens and samples for academic work.
v) Help staff and students of Department of Plant Science and Biotechnology, other
relevant Departments, the University Community as well as other stakeholders to
conduct quality research, mount collaborative and exchange programmes with other
national and international institutions and
vi) Provide an environment for relaxation and recreation.
Major Objectives of Regional Centre for Bioresources and Biotechnology
Research
i) Have in holding, endemic and endangered species found in the Niger Delta and
adjoining regions within the Guninea-Congolian biodiversity hotspot e.g. Lagenaria
siceraria (Monila) Standl., Desplatsia dewevrei Bacquillon, Thaumatococcus danielli
Bentham as well as species believed to be endemic to West Africa such as
Clappertonia ficifolia (Willd.) Decne, etc. A unique collection of wildlife, especially,

1

endemic, endangered and other relevant fauna was also to be added for research,
conservation and esthetic purposes.
ii) Promote research in the fields of Bioresource/Biodiversity conservation and
Biotechnology
iii) Serve as supportive academic infrastructure to promote national and international
research collaboration and exchange programmes.
iv) Offer a wide range of edaphic and biotic micro environments with high potency to
support establishment of protection facilities for biodiversity conservation and
attraction of international funds.
v) Drive the initiative for attraction of research funds through relevant competitive
research proposals, conferences, symposia, seminars and workshops.
Achievements
Initial Strides
1) Soon after its establishment, the Regional Centre became adopted by National
Biotechnology Development Agency ‘NABDA’ as a Coordinating Centre of
Excellence for the South-South geopolitical zone.
2) The Regional Centre, represented by Prof J.O. Osuji (myself) participated in the
World Bank STEP-B (Science and Technology Education Programmes- Basic)
research proposal writing twice. In the first instance, NABDA requested participation
by its Centres in a nation-wide STEP-B proposal writing exercise. In the second
instance, the Director, Centre for Research Management, Prof O. Akaranta requested
and coordinated participation of the Regional Centre for Biotechnology in a national
competition for World Bank STEP-B call for proposals. The second proposal (27 th
July, 2009) submitted jointly with the University of Maiduguri (North East Zonal
Biotechnology Centre ‘NEZBCE’/Centre for Arid Zone Studies ‘CAZS’), University
of Nigeria, Nsukka (South East Zonal Biotechnology Centre ‘SEZBCE’, National
Centre for Genetic Resources and Biotechnology ‘NACGRAB’ and National
Biotechnology Development Agency ‘NABDA’ was successful in attracting a World
Bank STEP-B grant of $5,600,000.00 (Five Million Six Hundred Thousand US
Dollars only) (attachment 3). The grant provided multi-million Naira Molecular
Genetics Research Equipment for the Regional Centre. Though a good development,
the major benefit of this grant was missed because most of the equipment were not
installed for deployment as appropriate.
3) Grant from Emerald Energy Plc. and Uniport Management was used to construct
the building that houses the Regional Centre for Biotechnology to date.
Challenges
The Microbial Type-Culture Centre
A building expected to hold a Microbial Type-Culture Centre was initiated in the
RCBBR/SSZCoE. The building, which has gone though several phases of delayed
project implementation is yet to be completed. If completed, this facility will add
value to the essence of the RCBBR/SSZCoE. It may also offer little space for staff
office accommodation. Though the building has been decked, windows, doors and
some of the structures that were earlier installed are all vandalized before this period
covered by the report.
Research publications/Innovations (See andover note of former Director)
Revamping of the RCBBR/SSZCoE
More than 80 % of the initial expectations and prospects of the CoE are presently lost.

UNIVERSITY OF PORT HARCOURT
CENTRAL COMMUNITY SERVICE UNIT

MEMO

From: Director, CCSU

Ref: 021

Date: 20 – 12 – 2022

To: DVC R&D

RE: SUBMISSION OF ANNUAL REPORT FOR CENTRAL COMMUNITY

SERVICE UNIT

In reference to your memo of December 6, 2022 regarding the above subject, I am presenting
the Annual Report on behalf of the Central Community Service Unit – CCSU.
Introduction:
The Nigerian government through the National Universities Commission (NUC) has
designed the Nigerian university curriculum to accommodate three significant tiers of social
development: Research, Teaching and Community Service. It is for the reason of initiating
the third tier that the idea to institutionalize and incorporate the Central Community Service
Unit in the University of Port Harcourt came into being. This process began in the first
meeting of the provisional Senate of the University in 1976 in which a committee was
instituted. The aim of the committee was to mandate and engage staff/students to represent
the university in rendering community services to the urban and rural host communities. At
the second meeting of Senate which held on January 5, 1977, it was considered appropriate to
rebrand the programme from “National Self-reliance” to “Community Service Field
Courses.” It is stated in the Community Service Brochure that the objectives of the
community service projects in the University of Port Harcourt is meant to be practically
carried out through the supervision of appointed staff for the Level 200 students who are
mandated to address some of the social challenges of the host-communities as well as the
university community itself.
Community Service embarked by students of the University of Port Harcourt may appear in
any form: disposal of waste materials or waste management programmes, sensitization programmes
on health status, sensitization programmes on climate or environmental matters which include eco-
friendly methods of waste disposals outside its dumping in rivers, tree planting, evacuation of debris
from gutters, beautification projects such as painting, weeding grasses, evacuating plastic wastes
blocking sewages, cleaning of market spaces, and, in some cases, building infrastructural amenities

for the target-community. The programme is expected inculcate and develop a consciousness of
responsibility in the students involved against the backdrop of their society and the
gratification of service to others.
In the University of Port Harcourt, Community Service is a University-wide
programme, graded as a prerequisite or compulsory One-credit Unit course for all Level 200
students. The course offers a first-hand opportunity for students to gain adequate experience
as they participate and volunteer their services in satisfying the university and host-
community’s need. The aim is to expand a student’s understanding of civic duties and
citizenship. A student who has dedicatedly embarked on a Community Service will fully
appreciate the need to give back to society through service rendering. The programmes
carried out in the CCSU help to increase self-awareness, social participation, and teamwork
in the students. As one gets to understand one’s role and place in a given society, one begins
to voluntarily give to the cause of change through service rendering. A student who
understands the concept of Community Service will become an instrument of change in any
given society. This is because of the social identity transformation, and upgrade in
psychological and social wellbeing such service produces in the individual or group.
During Community Service, there is an enlarged spirit which the entire process offers
to a student. This is an education that takes place in the life of the student. This manifests as a
mind shift as the humanity of the one who provides service is expanded based on the new
experiences gained and the knowledge acquired. It enriches the education process because
students take the lesson they learn in class out into the community in order to make society a
better place. Many have assumed that there is no connection between what is taught in the
university and real society, but Community Service is one of the avenues where this
assumption is proven wrong.
Activities:
Our Community Service programme, as earlier mentioned, involves a variety of
physical/practical activities. Our students start their Community Service orientations from the
classroom experience where academic staff from each department (known as Reps), under
the supervisory role of Faculty Coordinators, educate the students of the meaning,
importance, aim, objectives, and the modus operandi of the Community Service system in the
university. On an agreed date, students are moved out to the field in whichever location that
has been selected for the project. The Reps and Faculty coordinators are actively involved in
ensuring the success of the project. At the end of the activity, the student’s output is evaluated
and graded.

Achievements:
The year 2022 will go down in the history of our university’s academic calendar as one that
was distorted by the eight months ASUU strike. However, immediately the strike was
suspended, the new Director engaged the students of the six Faculties that were yet to embark
on their Community service project, to carry out the project of painting the entire cape stones
in the Abuja campus. This project was quickly and successfully done in order to project a
colourful aesthetical outlook of the university especially as the university was preparing for
its 33 rd convocation programme. Kindly see samples of a very few of painted cape stones in
the university:

EAST-WEST ENTRANCE, ABUJA CAMPUS

ROUND-ABOUT BY CONOIL PETROL STATION, ABUJA CAMPUS

Within the very short space of time available before the convocation, the Central Community
Service Unit was also able to fill up some of the potholes around the university which have
affected the smooth movements of vehicles around the campus. Kindly see very few pictures
below:

FRONT PREMISES OF THE SCHOOL OF BASIC STUDIES

Research Publications/Innovations:
The unit has sent to the University Press an updated Brochure beyond the 2018 print when
last it was printed. This updated version is expected to be published by January 2023 to kick-
start with the new session. The new Brochure has been significantly modified so as to
effectively reflect the pictorial activities of the unit, the changes introduced, and give proper
orientation-direction regarding the aim and objectives of the unit.
Challenges:
The Central Community Service Unit is faced with a number of challenges, some of them as
old as the directorate itself. The two very prominent ones are:
1. Lack of vehicles
2. Lack of office accommodation.
Vehicles: The nature of the field projects that are constantly carried out requires vehicles to
safe cost. Each time students and their Departmental Reps and Faculty Coordinators are
engaged in projects on behalf of their Faculties at specified locations within host
communities, the CCSU usually embarks on hiring buses and vans which are to carry
students and working tools/materials (wheelbarrows, shovels, head-pans, buckets, etc.) to the
sites. The hiring process is quite cost intensive, but would have been significantly mitigated if
the Unit had its own utility vehicles.
Accommodation: Lack of a befitting office space for staff of the Community Service has
also affected the morale of staff. The Directorate only consists of three offices that over ten
staff utilize as space for their intellectual and manual workforce. About six of its non-
teaching staff have no offices, while others are crammed into a small room called General
Office. Moreover, the ceiling in the available office is about to cave in due to termite-eaten
woods. Virtually every past Director has at one point or the other raised concerns about the
lack of vehicles and accommodation space for staff. In addition, the CCSU does not have
rooms where to store its working instruments. The Director has only been able to create a
makeshift space for this purpose which cannot be considered as an adequate and permanent
plan.
Recommendation:
Two significant challenges stand out, hence the following recommendations:

1. Vehicles are needed at the Central Community Service Unit to facilitate the projects
proposed for each session.
2. A new office complex should be recommended for the CCSU to accommodate its
staff and working tools.
Conclusion:
As earlier hinted in the introductory part of this Report, the Community Service programme
is an integral and important part of the Nigerian university system recognized by the National
University Commission – NUC. Unique UNIPORT has cut a special niche for itself
especially under the current administration which is apparently driven by pragmatism and
standard. In order to comply with global practice regarding community services in tertiary
institutions beyond the borders of Nigeria, Community Service which is one of the major
tiers of the Nigerian university system must take its rightful place in the University of Port
Harcourt. For this to happen, the directorate will require every ounce of support it can get in
order to measure and meet the required standard. There is strong hope that the current
administration led by a very highly pragmatic vice chancellor will look into this matter
favourably.

The academic programmes are delivered jointly by lecturers from the University of Port Harcourt, other
Nigerian universities and overseas universities, and experts from the oil and gas Industry. The lectures are in
modules, covering General, Core, Practical and Field training modules. All the programmes include
International Software Certifications, and are both physical and real-time online video conferencing modes.
The CPG faculty is constituted from the academic staff of local and international universities and the petroleum
industry experts.
The Centre is in partnership with relevant professional associations that make it easy for students to become
corporate members after graduation. They are:
1. Nigerian Mining and Geosciences Society (NMGS)
2. Council of Nigerian Mining Engineers and Geoscientists (COMEG)
3. Nigerian Association of Petroleum Explorationists (NAPE)
4. American Association of Petroleum Geologist (AAPG)
5. Society of Petroleum Engineers (SPE)
CPG staff and students attended the following International Conference within the period in review:
57 th Annual International Conference and Exhibition of the Nigeria Mining and Geosciences Society (NMGS)
held in March 2022, in Port Harcourt.
3.0 ACHIEVEMENTS AND LANDMARK EVENTS
Within the year under review, the Centre has recorded some modest achievements, which include the
following:
a). From three programmes, PGD, M.Sc and Ph.D in Petroleum Geosciences (full time) in 2021, to six
programmes in 2022. PGD in Green Energy Geosciences and Asset Management, M.Sc Green Energy
Geosciences, M.Sc Asset Management are the new additions that run in both full time and part time basis. All
the Petroleum Geosciences programmes have full NUC accreditations. Our collaboration efforts with the
University of Aberdeen, UK, which is still ongoing, encouraged us to mount programmes in Green Energy
Geosciences and Asset Management.
b). Following aggressive search for institutional collaborators, intervention by the Nigerian Content
Development Monitoring Board (NCDMB) is expected commence soon. Also Petroleum Trust Development
Fund (PTDF) through Cypher Crescent is also expected to resume sponsorship of our students. This search was
imperative as a result of the withdrawal of both Mac Arthur Foundation before 2020 and PTDF in 2020 from
partnership with the Centre, which posed a serious challenge as the number of candidates coming into our
programmes sharply dropped because they can hardly afford the programme on self-sponsorship, and also
running of the Centre became very difficult.
c). Our request to the Vice-Chancellor for a new accommodation for the Centre received his kind approval. As
a result, the Centre has been relocated from inadequate accommodation with only one-class room in Gas
Engineering Building in University Park to a much better accommodation with several offices and classrooms
in Delta Park.
d). CPG which was an appendage to the Institute of Petroleum Studies (IPS) in the Faculty of Engineering was
given approval to be excised from Engineering, and granted a stand-alone as a Centre with multi-disciplinary
courses, and the Director is now a member of the School of Graduate Studies Board.
e). We requested Dr Stanley Lawson to assist in resuscitating the Dr Stanley Lawson Geoscience Laboratory,
the establishment of which he funded in 2011, and was in total disrepair. He is graciously refurbishing it in our
new location in Delta Park.
f). The Centre has academic collaboration with:

6
 World Bank ACE-CEFOR, University of Port Harcourt
and is in advanced stage of collaboration with:
 Cypher Crescent Limited, Port Harcourt;
 Nigerian Content Development Monitoring Board (NCDMB), Yenogoa
 University of Aberdeen, United Kingdom

4.0 RESEARCH PUBLICATIONS/INNOVATIONS
Researches in the Centre for Petroleum Geosciences cover a wide range of topics and disciplines
including Geoengineering, Oil & gas financial accounting, Petroleum Project and Portfolio
Management, Hydrocarbon Reserve Estimation, Geomechanical Studies and Application of AI in oil
and gas process optimization.
CPG Research students are publishing their research papers in a research journal within the period under
review.

5.0 CHALLENGES
The discontinuation of collaborations of Mac-Arthur Foundation before 2020 and PTDF in 2020 with
CPG posed existential threat to the activities of the Centre. Students could no longer afford to pay the
fees to study in the Centre, while also getting candidates to enroll in the programme became herculean.
Thus, students’ admission became very low and programme difficult to run.
To arrest this situation, however, the Centre was able to get approval to expand its admission capture
base from three PGD, M.Sc and Ph.D. full time Petroleum Geosciences programmes to six programmes
with PGD and M.Sc full time and part time in Green Energy Geosciences and Asset Management.
The Centre has gone into partnership discussion with NCDMB and Cypher Crescent for sponsorship of
students’ and Centre’s projects, and University of Aberdeen for Academic collaboration.
The Centre was unable to admit in February/March 2022 because of the strikes by ASUU and other
trade unions in the University. However, our admission advertisement is on at the moment.
6.0 RECOMMENDATIONS
It is recommended that the money received in CPG in 2015 and 2016 which did not reflect in CPG
account (see attached letter from the Registrar) be recovered to help the operations of the Centre and the
University. It is also recommended that the university assists in listing the Centre as one of the
beneficiaries of Tetfund building projects (see architectural drawing attached).
7.0 CONCLUSIONS
The year under review has been most eventful in terms of positive changes in CPG and challenges the
Centre faced. In all, the future holds a lot of promises, and the mandate of the Centre will hopefully be
exceeded.
