“As the immediate past Chairman of the Governing Council of University of Nigeria, Nsukka, a leader with self-discipline attribute, and a man who believes that leadership is not just about getting the job done, but also about developing others and getting the job done through them, he remains the only Governor that can turn the fortunes of Abians for good”, Adighibe said.
