Anambra Varsity charges govt on adequate funding

Anambra Varsity charges govt on adequate funding

The Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu University (COOU), Igbariam owned by Anam­bra State government has urged the state government to redouble its effort in en­suring that the institution receives it full subvention to enable it function in full capacity.
Speaking to The AU­THORITY after defending the 2017 budget of N12.435 billion for the university before the state House of Assembly Committee on Education headed by Hon Vivian Okadigbo, at the state Assembly Complex, Awka, on Thursday, the Vice Chancellor of the uni­versity, Prof Fidelis Okafor, urged the state government to grant the university its full subvention to enable it attend to its multifarious needs. Represented by the Registrar of the university, Mr Okwuchukwu Oke­chukwu, the VC stated that the institution has contin­ued to make judicious use of the TETFUND Inter­vention scheme meant for the school and urged the state government to ensure that it gives the school its full subvention to enable the institution attend to its many needs. He, however, thanked Gov Willie Obiano for the strides of his govern­ment in ensuring that the school gets face lift; adding that the university is highly rated by all the accrediting agencies and professional bodies and that it is the 29th fully registered and accred­ited medical school out of the one hundred and forty universities in the country.
