Thank you Federal University of Technology Owerri (FUTO) – Africa’s finest university – for honouring me as one of the four notable alumni of the university. There is never a greater honour than the one that comes from home. It remains like yesterday when I landed from the village of Ovim to Owerri, to begin a journey, in one of the finest technical universities in the world.
The first core homework I did in Johns Hopkins University was on a course – Computer Aided Surgery – and the assignment was to develop a mathematical model to guide a robotic needle going through a laryngoscope during minimal invasive surgery of the throat.
My series and calculus courses in FUTO went into action. Within days, I received a Fellowship from the professor. Later that work became a patent. And later, the United States Government acquired some rights.
I want to thank my FUTO seniors, our university and all FUTOites for the honour.---
