NUC Approves King David University Of Medical Sciences As The 197th University In Nigeria

The National University Commission (NUC) just approved King David University of Medical Science as the 197th University in Nigeria!

When this was posted, many wondered, and rightfully so, if it was owned privately by the governor, David Nweze Umahi, or owned by Ebonyi state. I kept mute because I did not want to give you the wrong answer. I contacted the state government. The information & clarification below is from the Honourable Commissioner for Information; Chief Orji Uchenna Orji. Excepts:

The University is a creation of the Law of Ebonyi State duly passed by Ebonyi State House of Assembly and accented to by the Governor, and it has a status of a PUBLIC school with provisions on establishment, composition,and management.

The processes of project conceptualization, execution, University establishment, and approval of take-off by NUC were strictly in compliance with due process, principles of transparency, citizens participation and in accord with the University’s core values of excellence.

The House of Assembly, through necessary legislative processes, passed Law No. 006 2021 to give effect to the establishment of this world-class University designed to be a beacon of hope for the advancement of learning and enhancement of health care delivery in the State, the nation and African continent.
