Onuchukwu Wishes New UNIPORT VC Well, Says “I Did Not Participate In The Process”

(By Silas Ofori) -The new vice Chancellor at the University of Port Harcourt, Prof.  Oruwari Abraham Georgewill has been commended on his emergence, and advised to shun distractions and work for peace in the institution.

This declaration was made by a professor of economics at the institution, Prof.Okechukwu Onuchukwu, when Notable Outcome sought his views on the appointment of a sustantive vice chancellor at UNIPORT, while noting that he did not participate in the process.

Prof.Okechukwu, who was seen as one of the leading candidates for the office at a time however counselled Prof. Georgewill to create an enabling environment for academic work to thrive at UNIPORT.

” He should not fight anybody: he should just go ahead and do the work, and try as much as possible to maintain peace in the University”, Prof. Onuchukwu said.

Responding to a question, the professor of economics gave two reasons why he did not participate in the process leading to the emergence of a sustantive vice chancellor at UNIPORT.

“One, the thing became political: it became an APC affair. I am trying to maintain my integrity; I decided not to defect to APC like others because I don’t see myself coming out to mix politics with what we are doing in academics.

“Number two: the present council as it is constituted will not be fair to people like me because this council was brought to do specific job, and that is what they did, so there was no need to participate in such process because the outcome is predetermined; something that all over the University people knew that is where they were going.

“I wish them well. The most important thing is for the new administration to
ensure that there is peace in the University”, Prof.Onuchukwu concluded.
