“I want to challenge all my fellow youth to pursue their dreams vigorously and with God on your side, you will all attain all your goals,” the monarch said.

“If you do things in a forthright manner, your efforts will not go in vain for God himself will continually bless you.

“I promise to support the youth, beginning from Nsukka here, in achieving their dream as well as to improve them to become a formidable force towards making Nigerian a great nation and I will not. fail in the discharge of my duties as the Chancellor.”

President Muhammadu Buhari at the occasion congratulated the new Chancellor and expressed his confidence in the revered monarch’s ability to bring his wealth of experience in human and resource management to bear at the university.

The President, represented by the Minister of State for Education, Anthony Anuka, wished the Ooni a successful tenure as Chancellor of the university.

Some Nigerians awarded honourary doctorate degrees at the event include the Obi of Onitsha, Alfred Achebe; former Inspector General of Police, Ibrahim Coomassie; Arthur Eze; and Justice Eze Ozobu.
