The Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Joseph E. Ahaneku received members of the Architect Registration Council of Nigeria, (ARCON) recently in his office.


Welcoming the professional body of architects, Prof. Ahaneku expressed his excitement over the visit, noting that it would go a long way in assisting the university get things right. He disclosed that the Department of Architecture is doing very well.


He urged the team to critique the department, the best and professional way they can and equally leave remarks on ways to make the university a better place.


In his response, the leader of the delegation Arc.

He assured the University of an Objective Examination.



The Faculty of Management Sciences rolled out drums on Tuesday 25th of July, 2017 to celebrate the former Vice-Chancellor of the University, Prof. Pita Ejiofor as part of programmes to mark the silver jubilee (25 years of existence) of the faculty.


The event which was held at the University auditorium and chaired by a former Minister of Health,  Dr. Tim Menakaya, was graced by the Executive Governor of the state, Chief Willie Obiano who was represented by his Deputy,  Dr. Nkem Okeke, the former National Chairman of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA), Chief Victor Umeh, former Secretary to the State Government and 2017 Governorship aspirant in the state, Mr. Oseloka Obaze, the chairmen, Anambra and Enugu Council of Traditional Rulers, Igwe Alfred Achebe and Igwe Lawrence Agubuzo respectively, among others.


In his opening remarks, the Chairman of the event, Dr. Menakaya eulogized Prof. Ejiofor, describing him as a thorough bred Igbo man, a born teacher that has turned out to become an eagle and great role model.


Welcoming the Guests, the Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Joseph Ahaneku stated that it is thrilling that Prof. Pita Ejiofor is being honoured in his lifetime and during active service as Emeritus Professor by the institution where the lecture series which he noted hopefully, would run through the course of time. He described it as a well deserved and befitting honour to an erudite scholar, astute administrator and a social crusader.

Prof. Ahaneku posited that Prof. Ejiofor has contributed immensely to the evolution of the Management Sciences discipline in the Nigerian University system.


The Guest Lecturer and President, Academy of Management, Prof. Barnabas Agbonifoh who spoke on the topic:“management yesterday, today and the nigerian management question”, noted that Nigeria has been bedeviled with poor managerial practices ranging from her leaders to captains of industries and heads in ministries and parastatals.  He faulted some recent appointments of some ministers who lack requisite qualifications, to man some key ministries. Prof. Agbonifoh advised managers to be dedicated to their duties as well as being able to take responsibility for the good or bad outcome of their decisions


In his remarks, Dr. Nkem Okeke described Prof. Ejiofor as an “enigma” who is gifted and determined to make sure the Igbo language survives. Dr. Okeke commended Prof. Ejiofor for his doggedness in ensuring the language survives even at this critical time when Igbos are having identity crisis. According to him, Igbos must begin to identify who they are, adding that the survival of the Igbo race rests on every Igbo man and woman.


The Dean of the faculty, Prof. Anayo Nkannebe posited that the event was in honour of a man who has contributed immensely to the enviable height the faculty has attained over the years.

Chief Victor Umeh described Prof. Ejiofor as a man of many parts who is astute in his fight for truth, but quite unassuming, despite his accomplishments.


High point of the occasion was the unveiling and launching of a festschrift in honour of Prof. Ejiofor.


Prof. Ejiofor in his response was full of appreciation to the faculty and the university at large for the honour bestowed on him. Visibly elated, he expressed his gratitude to God for leading him this far and according him the grace to touch lives positively. He noted that he is highly humbled at the outpour of love and honour, adding that if he had opportunities, he would do more.




The final year students of Nnamdi Azikiwe University have expressed joy and excitement as they wrote their final examination (Degree). An academic degree is a qualification awarded to students upon successful completion of a course of study in university.


Usually, most students all over the world look forward to their final stay in the university, and when the time comes, they celebrate it in many ways. In the past, when students graduate, they converge for parties and pour water on themselves, but recently they just don’t party, but they now create ways of making their graduation remarkable.


At the different faculties of the university, the outgoing students were seen in uniforms and custom; dancing, singing, taking snap shots etc. The photos were taken in an aesthetic style, where the graduands stand in the shape of the acronym of the department and take photos. It was also observed that the graduates who wore a particular shade of dress, especially white, signed on each other’s cloth; they called it signing out. This was seen in almost every faculty.


Some of the graduates who were interviewed said they feel so relieved and joyous, as their sleepless nights, rush to lectures, examinations and assignments have, at least come to an end. However, some students who did not express optimism like others, said they have mixed feelings, but that they are grateful to God for seeing them through their stay in the university.
