Even as Campus-Green Initiative Gathers Momentum Alex Ekwueme Federal University Ndufu-Alike, Ebonyi State, is to plant 100, 000 fast-growing trees, as a source of internally-generated revenue through timber and also to combat climate change in the institution. This is one of the key performance objectives of the Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Sunday Elom as contained in his vision for the University. He said: “Efforts will be made to create reserve areas within the University land for aggressive planting of about one hundred fast-growing timber trees by 2022”, adding “These trees will yield billions of naira in 20 years.” Campus-Green Initiative beautifying the University environment Meanwhile, the Campus-Green Initiative of the University, which has the goal of building a campus-in-a-garden, thus making the University one of the most beautiful and eco-friendly campuses in Nigeria is gathering momentum. The Green Initiative which started in 2016 has led to aggressive yearly tree planting campaigns, with over 33, 000 ornamental and fruit trees already planted in the University. As the trees continue to grow and mature, the University is gradually wearing a new look, becoming a beautiful and environmental-friendly campus, with staff and students praising the University management for the efforts.
