The Federal Government has appointed the Oba of Benin, Ewuare II, as the Chancellor of the National Open University of Nigeria.
The Vice Chancellor of the university, Prof Olufemi Peters, who announced this when the management of the institution paid a courtesy visit to the Oba on Friday in Benin City, Edo State, assured that the fortunes of the university would improve.
Responding, the monarch said, “We hope to bring our experience in piloting the affair of the institution. I am most grateful to the Commander-in-Chief, President Muhammadu Buhari, for deeming it fit to appoint me as Chancellor of the National Open University of Nigeria.”
