The Public Relations Officer (PRO) of the Niger Delta University, Mr. Idoni Ingezi have noted that the University Vice Chancellor, Prof. Samuel Gowon Edoumiekumo has turned the University environment to a “dockyard of construction”.

The PRO made this known in an interview granted to Wilberforce Tv, where he noted that “my VC is very proactive, and based on his developmental strides, just on the 25th of June, 2020, the African Magazine came up with this African Summit where various personalities from Africa where focused”.

In this summit, the Vice Chancellor, Niger Delta University, Prof. Samuel Gowon Edoumiekumo was also focused. There were also other dignitaries like the Secretary General of the Commonwealth, the Prime Minister of Swaziland and also the Vice President of Liberia.

The NDU PRO noted that the Summit was about Africa after the Covid-19. What is Africa really looking at after this Covid-19 pandemic? And because the VC, having used his economic prowess as a Professor of Economics, turned the landscape of Niger Delta University. “Having stepped into the corridors of power, he has attracted a lot of development to this terrain”.

“My VC believes in indigenization. That is, using what we have to achieve what we want or proferring solutions to the challenges that we have here”.

“The VC told them in that forum that he is going to use his wealth of experience to tap into entrepreneurship and to expose our students and this university in that line by way of contributing our own quota to the development of Africa. Not just folding our hands and continuing to consume.


“So, we want to use education as a veritable tool to fast track development in Africa. So, that is the focus. And because of his contributions to education, the African Magazine has awarded him”.

“Even when we are in this Covid-19 lockdown, if you go through the campus, the VC has turned the university to a dockyard of construction. A lot of construction works are going on. Take for instance, the Faculty of Science project, which is also the TetFund intervention project, is going on. And it is at an advanced stage now”.

“And also the flood control project, which is also attracted from TetFund, that have also attracted a lot of beauty to the campus. Both in the Newsite and then the Main Campus. A lot is really going on”.

“And there is a lot of interlocking going on, drainage and others like that. Even the Faculty of Agriculture, the administrative building was done and right now, classrooms are also being built in order to make the Faculty a full-fledged, complete Faculty”.
