Ebonyi State Governor, David Umahi has handed the leadership of the two state-owned institutions to the State's Christain Association of Nigeria (CAN) Chairman, Rev. Fr. Abraham Nwali.

The inauguration of Nwali as the head of Ebonyi State University, Abakaliki (EBSU) and the Board of the David Umahi University of Medical Sciences Teaching Hospital (DUUMSTH) Uburu took place on Thursday.

During his speech at the event, Governor Umahi described the Reverend, his Special Adviser on Religious and Welfare Matters since 2015, as a shrewd leader who delivers when given any task.

“I gave the vice chancellor of the state university the task of recommending someone to become the chairman of the governing council.

“He returned to tell me that Nwali was best suited for the job and when I called him (Nwali) over it, he accepted,” Umahi said.

He further expressed his trust in Nwali to uphold the laws of the institutions and promote their all-around efficiency without running after selfish interests.

“Nwali is not going to look for money to keep for his children or build houses.

“We offered him land and vehicles as an executive council member but he declined.

“Such is the type of man every society desires

“One cannot forgo people from his area in such situations but if an outsider can help us achieve our goal, we would support him.

“We would afterwards take accruing dividends to our people,” he added.

He charged the appointees to maintain high standards in their various institutions.

The governor advised the appointees to maintain high standards, admonishing the institutions' management to discourage cultism among the students.

Nwali on behalf of the appointees appreciated the governor for the appointments, promising not to disappoint in carrying out their duties. 

“We would promote research in the institutions because the absence of research presents recycling of knowledge.

“We would also ensure that grants and subventions are not recycled into salaries and unproductivity but to enhance resourcefulness,” Nwali said.
