The National Universities Commission, NUC, has presented the operating certificate for the Kingsley Ozumba Mbadiwe University, Ogboko, to the Imo State government.

The handing over was performed by the Executive Secretary of NUC, Professor Abubakar Adamu, at a brief event held at the commission’s headquarters in Abuja.

The handover has put to rest the tussle over ownership of the university between former governor Rochas Okorocha and the Imo State government.

The State Governor, Hope Uzodinma administration, seized the university previously known as the Eastern Palm University, Ogboko, from the Governor of the state, Okorocha and renamed it the Kingsley Ozumba Mbadiwa University, Ogboko, Imo State.

With the handover, the NUC has recognized and approved the operational license of Kingsley Ozumba Mbadiwe University Ogboko, Imo State, as the 42nd state-owned university in Nigeria.

While presenting the certificate, Professor Abubarkar Adamu Rasheed, the Executive Secretary of the Commission, congratulated governor Uzodimma and assured him of the commission’s readiness to assist the state in her academic strides.

The Executive Secretary commended the governor for his vision to expand access to university education in Imo state and by extension, south-estern region of the country.

Rasheed noted that the commission would continue to work with the state to ensure the universities take their place among other universities.

“By a copy of this letter, the Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB), the Tertiary Education Trust Fund (TETFund) and the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) are being notified of this development.”

Receiving the Letter of Recognition, Uzodinma commended the NUC for ensuring stability in the country university system.

He said that the resolve to establish a state university was informed by the level of youth restiveness in the South-East.

Imo State is highly populated, we have a population of over five million and our youth population is very huge and it is also part of what has led to restiveness in the south east.

According to Uzodinma: “Today is a very special day for me, we have come here today to receive the recognition letter from NUC for our brand new KO Mbadiwe University.

“This university that is fully owned by Imo State government has also provided us the opportunity to immortalize one of our foremost philanthropists, KO Mbadiwe of blessed memory.”
