UNN Will Soon Be Among 10 Best Universities in the World – VC

Benjamin Ozumba, the vice-chancellor of University of Nigeria, Nsukka (UNN), says the institution is on the threshold of being among the best 10 universities in the world.

Ozumba, who assumed office in 2014 as the vice-chancellor of the University, said this in an interview with NAN in Nsukka, Enugu state, on Saturday.

The vice chancellor said he was happy that the institution was working according to the dream and vision of its founding father, late Nnamdi Azikiwe.

“His dream was for UNN to have the best professors, best library and best academic environment for teaching and learning so as to restore the dignity of man,” he said.

“I am happy that the institution is realising the dream and vision of its founding father through academic excellence and quality research work.

“I have no doubt in my mind that in no distant time, UNN will be among the best 10 universities in the world,” he said

He said that under his administration, the university had received global recognition as number one institution in research among Nigerian universities.

“I am happy that UNN under my watch has received global recognition as the best research university in Nigeria for two consecutive years .

“This was according to World Webometric that assesses universities in the world based on quality research work,’’ he said.

Ozumba attributed his achievements in the institution to God’s wisdom and hard work .

He had also won the award of excellent leadership of the university’s Institute of African Studies.

“I see any award given to me as a challenge to do more so that I will not disappoint those who have confidence in me by giving me the award. My achievements are because of God’s favour and hard work,” he said.

“Like William Shakespeare says, the achievements of great men were not recorded in sudden flight but they work while others are sleeping.”

The vice chancellor said his administration in 2016 hosted the West African Universities Games which participants described it as one of the best.

“I commend my management, staff and students of UNN because without their cooperation and support, all these achievements will not have been possible,” he said.
