Okpe leaders grateful to Gov. Obi, congratulate Orodje

Okpe leaders on Monday expressed profound appreciation to the Governor of Anambra State, Mr. Peter Obi for finding His Royal Majesty, Orhue 1, Orodje of Okpe Kingdom worthy and credible to be appointed the chancellor of the Anambra State University.

Secretary General, Okpe Union Worldwide, Mr. Henry Ebireri in a statement described Governor Obi as a detribalized Nigerian, who is building bridges of love and unity within and outside the state.

The leaders, who applauded the governor and others for selecting a proven leader, congratulated His Royal Majesty on his appointment as Chancellor of Anambra State University and on the award of honorary doctorate degree in law, LL.D of the university.

“We send best wishes for your continued health, peace, happiness and many moments of celebration as well as for the well-being and prosperity of the people of Okpe” the leaders said.

The leaders who recalled the university’s philosophy, particularly the pursuing of academic excellence in all aspects of human endeavour relating to cultural, social and economic developmental needs of the nation as well as placing high premium on arts, science and technology and their application to enhance the overall well-being of the society, urged His Royal Majesty to use his wealth of experience to reshape the twelve years old university and bring it to limelight.

“We trust that, like those waiting to see changes in the university, His Royal Majesty will not be satisfied with preserving the status quo but will demonstrate a commitment to moving the university forward and ensuring Anambra State has the educated workforce it needs to remain economically competitive”.

The leaders also thanked the Anambra State Commissioner for Education, Dr. Uju Okeke and the vice chancellor of the university, Professor Fidelis Okafor for persuading His Royal Majesty to accept the nomination.
