Ekpeh, Eze Enugwu-Ukwu na Igwe Umunri, at the Obu Umunri, Enugwu Ukwu, Anambra State.

During the visit, His Royal Majesty warmly welcomed Prof. Omenugha, recalling her previous contributions to the education system in Anambra State when she was the Commissioner for Education. He praised her for restoring order in the state’s education sector and expressed confidence in her ability to lead the university with bold, transformative steps, despite the challenges she might face. Igwe Sir Ralph encouraged Prof. Omenugha to maintain her strong resolve in improving the university, ensuring its continued success and stability.

 

He also emphasized on the legacy of the late Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu, emphasizing that his global reputation for heroism and discipline should be reflected in the students and staff of the university named in his honor. Igwe Sir Ralph provided guidance on maintaining discipline among the university‚Äôs students and staff, expressing his hope for the institution’s growth and excellence and believing so much in the Ag.

Prof. Omenugha, addressing the cabinet members and His Royal Majesty, metaphorically described the Enugwu Ukwu community as an ‘elephant’ housing many influential individuals globally. She emphasized the university‚Äôs desire to partner with the community, recognizing their potential contributions to the institution‚Äôs future.

 

Aligning with Igwe Ralph’s vision for the university, Prof. Omenugha assured him of ongoing transformative initiatives. She called on the community to support the university, noting that education should not be the sole responsibility of the government. Drawing on her experiences with Lincoln University and Cambridge University, she highlighted the need for endowments to build necessary infrastructure and hostels to support these collaborations.

 

Prof. Omenugha detailed her efforts in establishing partnerships with institutions like Kentucky University, Universistat Zelongoski, Cambridge University, and Lincoln University.
