Ugwuanyi, who placed high premium on education as one the cardinal policies of his administration, and an advocate public private partnership in the development of the state, expressed delight at the birth of the private university.


He, however, lauded what he described as the driving spirit of Dr. Onyishi in envisioning a university that is entrepreneurial in content, even as he congratulated him for his courage and vision in establishing the institution.


The governor reiterated the premium his administration placed on education as one of its cardinal policies, stressing: “This is why in almost five years, education has taken the second lead, only after the Works and Infrastructure Ministry in the state budget portfolio.”



Ugwuanyi added that his administration had provided conducive environment for teaching and learning in primary and secondary schools across the state, adding that “we ensured that our tertiary institutions are functional and stable.”
