The Senate Minority Leader, Godswill Akpabio, has pledged to build a new hostel for the Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu University, Igbariam, Anambra State.
Mr. Akpabio made the offer Thursday while delivering a lecture as part of events for the school’s 7th convocation.
In his lecture on “The Nigerian Question: Ethics in an Age of Uncertainty”, Mr. Akpabio called on Nigerian leaders to uphold ethics and morality as part of efforts to curb corruption in the country.
Mr. Akpabio defined ethics as doing things that are right and moral.
He commended the Federal Government for fighting corruption but stressed that it should be done across board.
Mr. Akpabio also advised political leaders against cross carpeting, saying it was mostly done in selfish interest.
He assured members of the National Assembly would continue to maintain ethics and good moral behaviour in making laws in the interest of the masses.
Vice Chancellor of the University, Prof. Fidelis Okafor, commended Akpabio for his promise to build a hostel in the institution.
Mr. Okafor urged students and graduates to imbibe the spirit of morality in life.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the institution will hold its convocation on March 18.
