Sen. Adolfus Wabara Gets Appointment as Chairman ABSU Governing Council
The Governor of Abia State, Okezie Ikpeazu, has inaugurated the Governing Council of Abia State University (ABSU), Uturu and appointed Sen. Adolfus Wabara as the Pro-Chancellor and Chairman of Council.
Speaking at the inauguration ceremony, Governor Ikpeazu said ABSU was the pride of the state and commended the university authorities for the strides recorded with meager resources. He also charged members of the council to ensure that the institution occupied a leadership position among universities in Nigeria.
The Governor added that in order to check cultism in the institution, the council should do a profiling of the students of the institution.
Ikpeazu observed that there was huge number of prospective university undergraduates who could not find space in other universities in the country, hence that the council should be stringent in the implementation of the school’s admission policy, urging them to provide space in the school for the teeming youths.
He said that it was pertinent for the institution to commercialise research activities in order to raise funds for the university.
Responding on behalf of the other members of the council, the Pro-Chancellor and Chairman of Council, and former senate president, Sen. Adolfus Wabara, thanked the governor for finding them fit to serve.
Wabara said that he was confident that the council would live up to expectation in the discharge of its duties.
