Lalong appoints new Pro-Chancellor for Plateau State University

15th February, 2021

The Governor of Plateau, Simon Lalong, has appointed Prof. Obiora Ike as the Pro-Chancellor and Chairman of Council of Plateau State University, Bokkos. The appointment was contained in a statement issued by the university’s Public Relations Officer, Mr John Agam, and made available to newsmen in Jos on Monday.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that Ike is a Professor of Ethics and Intercultural Studies at Godfrey Okoye University, Enugu State and Chairman of Enugu State Economic Advisory Committee.

NAN also reports that Ike is currently the Executive Director of Global Ethics Centre, a Geneva-based international network for ethics.

The new pro-chancellor takes over from Prof. Attahiru Jega, whose tenure had expired about two years ago, thus leaving the university without a governing council since then.

The governor also announced the appointment of seven others as members of the council.

They are: Prof. David Pam (Jos South); Mr Samuel Parah (Bassa); Prof. Bibiana Bawa (Qua’an Pan) and Mr Dan Dul (Langtang North). Others include: Mrs Valentina Dariye (Bokkos) and Mr Diket Plang (Pankshin), with Mr Chris Maiyaki representing the National Universities Commission (NUC) on the council.

NAN reports that the appointments have laid to rest the agitation for the constitution of a new governing council for the state-owned university.
