In what looks like a season of seamless goodwill, Brownhill Foundation, a-Warri based Non-Governmental Organisation in Delta State, has recorded another feat in corporate social responsibility at the University of Benin.


An alumnus of the political science department of the University, Mr Amaju Melvin Pinnick, who is also the immediate past two-tenure President of the Nigeria Football Federation and a serving member of the FIFA Council, has donated an e-library to the Faculty of social sciences, at a conservative cost of N30m.


Unarguably, one of the best e-library in this part of the developing economies, the infrastructure is fully solar-powered for the entire 24 hours of the day, with students accessing information from the comfort of their classrooms and hostels.


An elated Professor Salami, Vice Chancellor of UNIBEN described the gesture of the Amaju Pinnick-led Brownhill Foundation as phenomenal and paradigm shift in the Alumni movement in Nigeria.


Leading the pack of personalities at the official commissioning is Barrister Olumide Akpata, the immediate past President of the Nigeria Bar Association (NBA) and a retinue of industrialists, members of the academic community, bureaucrats, the political class and players in the organised private sector.


It will be recalled that Brownhill Foundation, only yesterday donated a modern basketball court to Government College, Ughelli while Hussey College, warri got a Volleyball and Handball courts, as her largesse.


In a brief remark, the humanitarian, Mr Amaju Melvin Pinnick said his mission and vision is to give back to the society, describing the ceremony as a symbolic homecoming.


Students of the University went agog in songs and acrobatic display of dancing skills, in appreciation of “one of their own” who has decided to make learning easier for them.
