On Thursday, the 20th of July 2017, the duo of Mrs. Sephora Imomoh and Mr. Abidemi Kolawole representing the British Council, paid a courtesy call on the management of Akwa Ibom State University. Their visit was to explore avenues of possible collaboration in the development of skills and manpower.
