When Kennedy Uzoka was nominated to succeed Philips Oduoza as Group Chief Executive of the United Bank for Africa Plc, Chairman Sir Tony Elumelu made a stark statement in his speech. “Kennedy brings an extremely strong skill set and is uniquely positioned to lead UBA through its next phase of growth,” said Elumelu.

Over the past 5 years, this strong skill set has repeatedly manifested itself in the impressive numbers the bank continues to produce year after year, despite having faced the challenges of two recessions and the fallout from an unprecedented coronavirus pandemic. Among other striking growth indices, Uzoka’s tenure saw the bank’s gross profit increase by 71.6%, from N383.64 billion in 2016 to N658.29 billion in 2021.

And very recently also, the successor of Uzoka was announced. You might be positively surprised by his consistently good results if you consider that Uzoka didn’t originally plan to be a banker.

The man who is now the group managing director of one of the largest banks in Africa obtained his first degree in mechanical engineering from the University of Benin, the best mechanical engineering student of the class of 1987. He has then obtained a Bachelor of Science in Accountancy and became a Fellow of the Chartered Institute of Accountants of Nigeria.

He holds an MBA from the University of Lagos, and much later in his career he also attended Harvard Business School in Boston USA, the International Institute of Management Development (IMD) in Lausanne, Switzerland and the London Business School, UK.

The news continues after this announcement




His stay in the different business schools allowed him to be trained and certified in the advanced management program, leadership in financial institutions in Europe, the HR strategic course in the transformation of organizations, including competition and strategy .

banking career

Uzoka worked with Standard Trust Bank (STB) as Regional Manager-South East, Vice President-Northern Nigeria, Marketing Manager – Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Marketing Manager, Lagos and later , CEO of STB. When STB merged with UBA in 2005, it then joined the new UBA. He served as Managing Director and Group Head of UBA South Bank covering the Eastern, Southern, Mid-Western and Western States of Nigeria.

The news continues after this announcement



He rose through the ranks, showing his strong skills in corporate banking. He has held various positions including Group Director, Resources, Group Human Resources Director, Executive Director, Resources, Deputy Managing Director UBA Bank for Africa and Deputy Managing Director/CEO UBA Africa managing subsidiaries in 18 countries across the continent. . Uzoka provided multi-level strategic support, overseeing 3 key strategic support areas in digital banking, information technology and personal banking; and also oversaw the Bank’s operations in New York and London.

His responsibilities covered a number of core business functions including Group Treasury, International Financial Institutions and Transaction Banking, Online Banking, UBA Pension Custodians, Consumer Banking and Cash Management Services.

In 2016, he became the Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer of the UBA Group, having gathered in his pocket a wealth of experience in core banking, corporate marketing, strategic business advisory services and management. resources for more than 2 decades. The stint recently changed hands, as Alawuba Oliver was announced as Uzoka’s successor.

Memberships, scholarships and awards

In 2019, Kennedy Uzoka won ‘BusinessDay’s Bank CEO of the Year’, an award very much tied to the bank’s impressive financial performance, shareholder investment appreciation and the introduction of the UBA’s chatbot, LEO – first of its kind in any financial institution in Africa.

Kennedy Uzoka was a member of the board of Central Securities Clearing System (CSCS) Limited; Member of the Chartered Institute of Credit Administration (ICA); Director of the Financial Institutions Training Center (FiTC); Registered Professional of the Financial Reporting Council of Nigeria; Member of the Institute of Directors (IoD).

Uzoka is a member of the MasterCard Middle East and Africa (MEA) Advisory Council. He also served on the Nigerian Economic Summit Group as a director.

Net value

Although it’s not easy to put a number on his net worth, Kennedy Uzoka is certainly retiring comfortably. According to the market analyst, Uzoka owns millions of units of United Bank for Africa Plc (UBA) shares. It’s quite an asset that many would give an arm and a leg for.

The Department of Physics, Engineering, and Astronomy will begin offering degrees in Mechanical and Electrical Engineering this fall.

Previously, the department only offered a degree in engineering physics with the option of a concentration in mechanical or electrical engineering.

Hector Ochoa, associate professor of electrical engineering, said the process of earning more engineering degrees at the SFA began years ago thanks to Dan Bruton, professor and director of the planetarium.

“Bruton has continued to work hard over the years to build a strong case for getting the degrees approved,” Ochoa said. “By leveraging the knowledge gained from the engineering physics degree and current technology trends in Texas, the department was able to present a strong proposal to add the electrical and mechanical engineering programs.”

Hacer Varol, an assistant professor in the department, said the new programs will allow students to take more mechanical or electrical engineering courses to prepare them for the job market.

“According to the United States Bureau of Labor Statistics, job growth in these two fields will be approximately 7% from today to 2030. It can be argued that this rate may be higher than expected due high earning potential, stable work schedule and prestige,” Varol said.

She said the SFA has seen an increase in the number of engineering students, over 7%, and believes that having “more marketable and visible degree programs” will attract more students.

The two new engineering degrees have not yet been accredited by the Engineering and Technology Accreditation Board, which Ochoa says is essential for an engineering degree because most employers don’t will not hire a graduate of an unaccredited program.

Rickey McDaniel, head of the department, said ABET accreditation means an engineering program has been assessed and meets “agreed quality standards for the engineering profession”. But he said the accreditation process is not easy.

“For example, one of the requirements to apply for ABET accreditation is that a degree must have at least one student who has gone through the entire program and graduated before we can apply for accreditation,” McDaniel said. “The purpose of this requirement is for ABET not to accredit what you plan to do in the future, but rather for them to review what you have actually done and how it fits their requirements.”

However, Ochoa said that doesn’t mean the new programs are worth it, nor should students be shy about completing the programs.

“The Department of Physics, Engineering and Astronomy engineering team is working hard to get everything ready to apply for accreditation once we release our first graduate,” Ochoa said. “A good thing about this is that ABET provides retroactive accreditation for two years. Once we apply and receive ABET accreditation, if all goes well during the review process, those graduates would be covered.

Faculty in the department said they were excited to begin offering these programs to students and begin preparing them for careers in electrical and mechanical engineering. Students graduating from the programs will have the opportunity to work for major companies like Oncor, Lockheed Martin, GE Aerospace, Boeing, NASA and many more.

Anyone interested in SFA’s engineering programs can email the department at engineering@sfasu.edu or visit the SFA website for more information.

By Mr. Blake Bagby, Military Test Plans Analyst, Airborne and Special Operations Test Directorate, U.S. Army Operational Test Command

FORT BRAGG, North Carolina – Airborne equipment testers here work with aerospace engineers on modifying drop rig techniques due to structural and mechanical changes brought about by the manufacture of the Infantry Squad Vehicle (ISV).

“Testing focused on determining if ISVs in Production Representative Mode (PRM) could tolerate the forces experienced during Low Velocity Airdrop (LVAD) operations,” said Lt. Col. Derek Johnson, chief of the Test Division at the Airborne Test and Special Operations Directorate (ABNSOTD). ).

The ISV is a new concept allowing Army Infantry Brigade Combat Team soldiers to cover large areas of difficult terrain faster and less fatigued by reducing the area usually covered on foot.

Infantrymen would also be able to carry enough personal and squad supplies to sustain themselves for several days, and the ISV is also carried easily by air on Air Assault and Airborne Assault missions. .

The U.S. Army Combat Capability Development Command’s Soldier Center in Natick, Mass., assisted ABNSOTD in modifying ISV rigging procedures and cardboard honeycomb kit to accommodate modifications made to the representative production model of the ISV by General Motors Defense.

“This capability is required across the full spectrum of military operations faced by infantry brigade combat teams conducting selected crisis response, initial entry and decisive action missions,” said James Cochran ( JC), a seasoned analyst of military test plans within ABNSOTD.

Johnson said the changes were deemed necessary after a previous version of the ISV encountered hardware issues during development testing when it was discovered that some vehicle components were not robust enough for service. long term vehicle.

Testing began with an exercise in mounting two PRM ISVs on a standard V-type Low Speed ​​Airdrop Operations (LVAD) platform and a dual-row drop system platform.

After the rigging solutions and cardboard honeycomb modifications were incorporated into the rigging procedures, both vehicles underwent a Simulated Drop Impact Test (SAIT).

The two ISV PRMs mounted on drop platforms were lifted by a crane and released freely to simulate the impact velocity experienced during LVAD operations.

“During the execution of the SAITs, high-speed video, photography and instrumentation (accelerometers and impact data recorders) were used to assess the response of the PRM ISV to the forces experienced during LVAD operations,” said said Michael Estremera, electronics engineer at ABNSOTD.

After the SAIT, both vehicles were thoroughly inspected by ABNSOTD, General Motors Defense and the ISV program office to see if either ISV had sustained any damage from the forces experienced in the simulated drop.

The tests concluded with a 50 kilometer test drive, with ABNSOTD personnel operating the PRM ISVs on improved, semi-improved and unimproved roads as well as off-road routes at varying speeds.

After the test drives, personnel from ABNSOTD, General Motors Defense and the ISV Program Office thoroughly inspected both vehicles to assess any damage the vehicles may have sustained.

These follow-up tests generated data on an ISV PRM’s ability to withstand the forces experienced during LVAD operations and remain fully mission capable.

“Driving the ISV is a great experience from a driver’s perspective,” said Staff Sergeant Clinton Martinez, an ABNSOTD paratrooper rigger. “It rides smoothly over all types of terrain and the visibility is exceptional.”

“The ISV’s speed and maneuverability, as well as its ability to easily negotiate all types of terrain should give confidence to infantrymen who will use this vehicle in the real world and during training operations,” said Sgt. . 1st Class Marcus Love, an infantryman assigned to ABNSOTD.

The ISV is deployable worldwide by sea, air and land to support strategic deployment and operational maneuver in accordance with Army and Joint doctrine.

Dodge may be going electric, but this automaker is doing its best to retain its muscle car personality in the age of electric vehicles. Its first eMuscle concept car, the Charger Daytona SRT EV retains several analog features. These include the “Fratzonic Chambered Exhaust,” a large front spoiler to maintain a classic Charger profile, and the all-new “eRupt” multi-speed transmission with pistol-grip shifter. But since electric motors have a much wider torque range than their internal combustion counterparts, what does the new Charger EV’s shifting actually do?

Could the Charger EV concept have a true manual transmission?

On Friday, rescuers responded to a single-engine plane crash on eastbound University Boulevard near Hall Road in Orange County.

Investigators say the 1956 Cessna 182 suffered a mechanical failure that caused the pilot to make an emergency landing around 4 p.m.

“The aircraft landed on the south shoulder and partially on the driveway of a residence,” said a Florida Highway Patrol incident report. “The wings of the plane struck two palm trees and the front of the plane caused minor damage to the driveway wall of the residence.”

When it came to rest, the plane was facing south on the shoulder of University Boulevard, according to the report.

The pilot, identified in the report as a 40-year-old Longwood resident, suffered minor injuries in the crash but was treated at the scene and refused to be taken to hospital, investigators said.

He was later identified by Spectrum News reporter Asher Wildman as Remy Colin, who said he made the emergency landing because he thought he had engine trouble.

According to Orange County Fire Rescue, the scene was cleared within 45 minutes and the accident investigation was turned over to the National Transportation Safety Board and the Federal Aviation Administration.

Evermotion 3 Mechanical Paint Parts Restoration Solution

The Evermotion Mechanical Paint Pieces Restoration 3 Puzzle adds a new tool into the mix, much like Pieces Restoration 2 did with the introduction of Tiered Systems. This time we have to consider a Duplex gear, which interacts on the two elevation levels available with gears of different sizes.

This being the new mechanic, you would expect us to use it here – and we do. You can start this puzzle by placing a large gear in the only slot it will fit, position 5. You can then power up this gear by adding a small gear in position 3.

After which drop the Duplex gear in position 7. You may need to use the flip option provided in the lower right corner, you will want the smaller side of the Duplex gear at the top as the large gear does not will not be able to log in. with it and feed it by turning if it’s the other way around.

From there, you just need to place two final medium gears in positions 4 and 6 to power the final gear needed to complete the puzzle. These gears will need to be placed on the upper level for the Duplex gear we placed earlier to power them, but if you start by placing the gear in position 6 this will happen automatically, as it cannot fit on the lower level .

Understanding how physical systems interact – for example, how a wind turbine interacts with wind and temperature fluctuations – is key to understanding and building better systems. This is the premise of a five-year research project launched this summer by assistant professor of mechanical engineering Aditya Nair. The project, funded by a $749,034 grant from the U.S. Department of Energy’s Early Career Research Program, could ultimately help engineers harness peak performance through smart design.

Now in its thirteenth year, the DOE’s Early Career Research Program is designed to strengthen the nation’s scientific workforce by providing support to outstanding researchers during the crucial early career years, when many scientists are doing their most formative work. The winners were selected from a large pool of university and national laboratory applicants.

Building Better Renewable Energy Sources

“Physical system A, physical system B, these two systems behave differently – how are they actually going to talk to each other?” said Nair.

His research project, “Network-Based Simulations of Coupled Multi-Physics Systems”, aims to establish a computational framework that models how physical systems “talk” to each other on a dynamic system of graphs. The dynamic graph system considers nodes, or basic units of the data structure, and how they are connected to each other by weighted graphs (graphs in which each edge has an associated value). The research insights, writes Nair in the project summary, “will facilitate accurate characterization of inter-physics sensitivities, automate the algorithmic selection process for high-performance computing, and enable energy-efficient operation of multi-physics systems.”

Ultimately, Nair said, this can lead to building better renewable energy sources.

The concepts for making it happen may seem abstract, but Nair’s enthusiasm for this project is tangible.

“I want to emphasize that really understanding the fundamental interactions between physical systems and leveraging them to build better technology is the key to scientific progress,” Nair said.

Help throughout the academic journey

Getting a DOE grant is never easy, but Nair had additional stressors. When he applied for the program in January, his newborn daughter was in the hospital.

“It was a stressful time,” Nair said. “The DOE was supportive and accommodating, they understood where I was coming from.”

Today, his baby girl is doing well – “she’s awesome”, Nair said – and he credits her and her family for his good fortune. He was one of 83 scientists across the country to receive grants this year through the DOE’s Early Career Research Program.

“My daughter has given me all the luck I need,” he said.

If Nair is feeling lucky, he’s also hugely qualified for the award. With a doctorate. in Mechanical Engineering from Florida State University, his primary research interests lie at the intersection of fluid mechanics, data science, and graph theory. He has published several articles on modeling and control of fluid flow behavior and other topics in publications such as Advances in Aerospace Science and journal of fluid mechanics.

He credits his teachers for his strong academic foundation.

“In Hindu culture, gurus (teachers) are very important,” he said. “For me – my professors, my doctorate. advisor and post-doc advisors, it is their training that allowed me to obtain this award. I hope I can become a guru like that for future generations.

By receiving the grant, Nair, said, validated his academic ideas.

“For me, especially as a junior faculty member, it’s very encouraging to know that I can actually work on what I’m thinking about,” he said.

Nair is a founding member of the AI ​​Institute for Dynamic Systems and helped develop the predictive capabilities of Truckee Meadows’ COVID-19 Risk Meter.
