Uzodinma who made the announcement while receiving a report from the institution’s visitation panel in Owerri said that the state was poised to take the university to a competitive and admirable height.

“It is either IMSU becomes a university or never. We will exhaust all extant rules to reposition the tertiary institution for academic excellence and to bequeath same to our society”, he said.

According to Uzodinma who described education as the pivot through which people acquired knowledge and skills.

He expressed satisfaction with the panel’s report and thanked the member for critically looking into their areas of assignment which he said would check corruption and maladministration in the university.

Presenting the report earlier, the Chairman of the Panel, Prof. Chinedu Nebo, outlined the institution’s challenges.

He identified the institution’s challenges to include falsified age claim, lack of ICT-compliant personnel, digitisation of the institution and succession based on academic excellence.
