The news of your emergence in a keenly contested position amidst twelve other contenders, and your subsequent confirmation and swearing-in today by the Governing Council, as the ninth Vice Chancellor of the University of Port Harcourt did not come to us as a surprise because you are eminently qualified for such a prestigious position.
You have contributed in no small measure a great deal in the world of academics; as your works are evidential for all to see. Your hard-working has brought you to the echelon of your choosen career.
You are a seasoned administrator, a detribalised Nigerian, a devot Christian who fears and reverences God, and your services to God and humanity have not gone unnoticed; hence the elevation.
You are a team player, an astute researcher/scholar of great repute and thoroughly furnished breed. We are very confident that you will bring your wealth of experiences and knowledge to make Uniport a world class University.
It is therefore on this premise, we pray to God’s protection and divine wisdom to pilot the affairs of the University through out your tenure.
Congratulations once more Prof Georgewill Abraham Owunari.
