UNIPORT governing council appoints Pharm Onwunari as new VC

Owunari takes over from Prof. Stephen Okududu, who was appointed last year on an acting capacity following delay in inaugurating a governing council for the institution.

The 16th Council was, however, inaugurated mid May and saddled with the immediate task of selecting a VC to direct the ship of the institution.

Chairman of the Governing Council, Senator Andrew Uchendu, announced the new VC at the university’s Senate building on Friday.

Uchendu said Owunari, from the Department of Pharmacology, Faculty of Basic Medical Sciences, was considered the best man for the job among 12 other contestants.

He said the council complied with the provisions of the University Act on the selection of the Vice Chancellor.

According to him, “After interviewing about 12 applicants, we found three of them appointable and on behalf of President Muhammadu Buhari, and following the report of the selection board, the council approved the appointment of Professor Georgewill Owunari as the 9th vice chancellor of the University of the Port Harcourt.”

He charged Owunari to avoid discrimination and work together with all stakeholders to lead the university to a greater height.

Speaking with newsmen shortly after taking delivery of his appointment letter, Owunari assured the university community that he would run an all-inclusive government, utilising the available resources in the institution for growth.

“I will strive to work to ensure that we are among the top five university in Nigeria, top 10 in Africa and top 100 in the world.
