Osodi-Odu Ahaba Tasks African Universities On More Research
Written by Maritime First

African universities have been enjoined to go into more research for the development of the continent.

The Osodi-Odu Ahaba of the Asaba Kingdom, Delta State, Chief (Dr) Felix Ugochukwu Offiah, made the call in Asaba when he received an honourary award of Doctor of Science by Afriford University of Republic of Benin, Cotonou, which took place at Asaba, Delta State capital.

Dr Offiah, whose 69th birthday, coincided with the conferment, said there was need to bring the required developments to the African nations for more employment, improved health system and economy through education.

He also appealed to the Federal Government of Nigeria to resolve the lingering ASUU strike.

Chief Offiah, whose son, Barr. Chike Offiah was also conferred with ‘Doctor of Law,’ promised to use his knowledge and skills to advance the course of humanity and to remain a good ambassador of the university.

Dignitaries at the event included government functionaries from Delta State, members of the Nigerian Bar Association, representatives of the Asagba of Asaba; Professor Chike Odozie, and members of the white cap chiefs, in the palace.
