Crisis between the former Governor of Imo State, Rochas Okorocha and the state government over the ownership of Kingsley Ozumba Mbadiwe University, Ogboko, have finally been laid to rest.
EKO HOT BLOG reports that the operating certificate for the varsity was handed over to Imo State through Governor Hope Uzodimma by the National Universities Commission (NUC).
NUC Executive Secretary Prof Abubakar Rasheed presented the certificate to the governor at the commission’s headquarters in Abuja.
The NUC boss said the presentation will end the tussle between the former and the state government over who owns the institution.
He said: “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.”
The executive secretary congratulated Uzodimma and assured him of the commission’s readiness to assist the state in its educational strides.
Abubakar also commended the governor for his vision to expand access to university education in Imo and by extension, the Southeast region of the country.
