Governor Ugwuanyi To Unveil State Medical University

Enugu State is set to receive a major boost in the education sector as Governor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi will unveil the newly established State University of Medical and Applied Sciences (SUMAS) in Igbo-Eno, Enugu State.

The university is located in the Enugu North Senatorial District and is set to be unveiled on Thursday, February 16, 2023.

Governor Ugwuanyi, who is also the Visitor to the University and candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) for Enugu North Senatorial District, will not only unveil the university but will also be the Guest Lecturer at the 5th Adada Lecture being organised by the Association of Nsukka Professors (ANP).

According to a statement by the President of the ANP, Prof. Osy Okanya, Governor Ugwuanyi will speak on “Leadership Education and Inclusive Development” at the medical university.

The lecture will be chaired by Justice Chima Centus Nweze, Ph.D, a Justice of the Supreme Court of Nigeria.

“The Adada Lecture Series is a flagship programme of the Association of Nsukka Professors (ANP) which provides a platform for sharing standpoints and perspectives on various contextual issues that challenge the society,” Okanya explained.

He noted, “ANP seeks to contribute to the peace, progress and development of her contiguous society.”

Prof. Okanya also added, “in order to sustain the tempo of this public engagement for the benefit of our society, the Association of Nsukka Professors will heartily host His Excellency, the Governor of Enugu State, Dr. Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi, CON, as her Guest Lecturer at her 2023 Fifth Adada Lecture.”

The President of the ANP disclosed that the event will begin at 10 am and has invited the general public to attend the momentous occasion of the unveiling of SUMAS in Igbo-Eno.

This, according to him, is a significant milestone in Governor Ugwuanyi's administration, as the establishment of the university is a remarkable achievement that provides a platform for increased access to quality medical education for young people.

It is also expected to improve the quality and affordability of healthcare services in Enugu State and its environs.
