Daily Trust - - JOBS & CAREERS -

The Govern­ment of Edo State has ap­pointed Chief Law­son A. Omokho­dion as the Pro-Chan­cel­lor and Chair­man of the Gov­ern­ing Coun­cil of Am­brose Alli Uni­ver­sity (AAU), Ekpoma, lo­cated in Esan West Lo­cal Govern­ment Area of the state.

The re­con­sti­tuted gov­ern­ing coun­cil is made up of 20 mem­bers among who eight, in­clud­ing the chair­man, were di­rectly ap­pointed by the Gov. God­win Obaseki.

Omokho­dion will lead the 20-mem­ber coun­cil for a four-year pe­riod.

While in­au­gu­rat­ing the re­con­sti­tuted coun­cil re­cently, Obaseki, charged mem­bers to re­turn AAU to the glo­ri­ous days as a pre­mier aca­demic in­sti­tu­tion.

He urged mem­bers of the AAU com­mu­nity to re­tool them­selves and project AAU as a ci­tadel of aca­demic ex­cel­lence.

The gov­er­nor noted that he had ap­pointed a non­po­lit­i­cal coun­cil made up of cred­i­ble, tested and ex­pe­ri­enced pro­fes­sion­als, say­ing he was op­ti­mistic that AAU would ex­cel un­der the coun­cil.

Omokho­dion thanked the gov­er­nor for the ap­point­ment and promised that the Coun­cil will op­er­ate wholly within the Law es­tab­lish­ing the Uni­ver­sity and will be dili­gent, fair and firm in the dis­charge of its du­ties.
