University Professors from Anambra State have commended President Bola Ahmed Tinubu over the appointment of economist and administrator, Amb. Greg Ozuomba Mbadiwe Pro-Chancellor and Chairman of governing Council of the Nnamdi Azikiwe University, Awka, Anambra State.

Mbadiwe is the first son of late Nigerian nationalist, Dr. Kingsley Ozuomba Mbadiwe.

The university dons under the aegis of Forum of Anambra Professors (FAP) said the appointment of Amb. Mbadiwe will further guarantee outstanding teaching and learning standards and make Nnamdi Azikiwe University, Awka the best of its kind in Nigeria and beyond.

The Forum, in a statement signed by its National Coordinator, Prof Ikechukwu Okafor and made available to journalists in Abuja, described Amb. Mbadiwe as a “diligent and prudent personality; a legal luminary, very brilliant, highly experienced and result-oriented administrator.

Part of the statement said, “Our Forum appreciates President Bola Ahmed Tinubu for choosing best hands for the much-needed multisectoral development and productivity in the country.

“The Appointment of Amb. Mbadiwe as the Pro-Chancellor and Chairman of Governing Council of Nnamdi Azikiwe University, Awka is indeed a step in the right direction considering his versatility and competence in administration and policy development.

“It is a loud testament of the commitment and vision of the Tinubu administration towards the development and advancement of the education sector in Nigeria. It is fortuitous that the son of the legendary Chief K.O. Mbadiwe has been given the mandate to turn around the fortunes of a university named after his late father’s bosom friend in the National Council of Nigeria and the Cameroons (NCNC), Chief Nnamdi Azikiwe.” the statement said.

The Forum asserted that Amb. Mbadiwe will further bring to the Governing Council his administrative experience and skills garnered over the years of trainings and public service including as Nigeria’s Ambassador to the Republic of Congo, Chairman of the Board of the National Bureau of Statistics (NBS) and Chairman of the Board, Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC).
