His words: ``We have come to congratulate you on your deserved appointment and to present to you the issue of community benefits, especially in the area of employment slots, and transparent distribution of opportunity among communities within the Local Government Area.

According to him, the courtesy call has been as a result of the harmonious relationship existing between the town and your college.

Mr Akanyeonu, said the union would at all times give maximum support to the college in order to further the smooth relationship between the community and the college.

Responding, the provost, Dr Mrs Okoli thanked the entire members of the union and assured them of peaceful tenure that would attract positive development to the college.

Mrs Okoli pointed out that the institution could not survive in isolation of the host community, saying that the college would strive to maintain cordial relationship with the community.

She commended the PG for his wisdom and courage in handling issues and challenges facing the community.

The provost, then, thanked the Traditional Ruler of Umunze, Igwe Promise Eze, who had been supporting the institution, especially in the area of security.

She, however, appealed to the union to boost security, check students living within their community as well as control activities of the `bad eggs’ living among them.
