The Ambrose Alli University, Ekpoma, Edo, has appointed Mr Mike Aladenika as the new Head of Corporate Communications of the university.
The appointment of Aladenika, an erstwhile chairman of the Nigeria Union of Journalists (NUJ), Edo council, was made via a statement issued by the university’s Acting Registrar, Mr Ambrose Odiase.
In the statement, a copy of which was made available to our correspondent on Thursday in Benin, the registrar said the appointment was part of the bid to reposition the institution.
“Our institution is undergoing rebranding in all facets and our corporate image is important to the growth of the institution, thus the need to engage a professional with requisite cognate experience.
“It is the belief of the management that with the appointment of a senior media practitioner, our rebranding process is gradually climaxing, thus putting AAU at an enviable position among the comity of institutions of higher learning.
“Nigerians and our dear people of Edo State should know that Ambrose Alli University, Ekpoma, is not only an institution of today but one with its eyes into the future,” Oriade said.
Aladenika, a product of the the defunct Ondo State University, Ado-Ekiti, and the International Institute of journalism, is a former staff member of the African Independent Television (AIT).
