Overtime, Prof Dick Uduma has stood out with his astute influence in Political strategy. A revolutionary administrator who few years back celebrated the full accreditation of the department led under his administration. In 2019 in what appeared to be a record breaking feat, the department of political science Abia State University graduated not less than 13 MSC students.
Emmanuel Shebbs, a lecturer in the department of political science described his promotion:
“As the most upright and irrevocable moral record of all times”
Professor Uduma’s elevation to the rank of a Professor is a clear prove of Professor Eleazar Uchenna Ikonne ‘s legendary strides as the Vice Chancellor of Abia State University who has, for over 4 years now, maintained a meritorious record of achievement in the area of prompt staff promotion, staff training, salary payment etc. Prof Ikonne’s regime as the VC has positioned the University as one of the best universities in the country, a feat which best illustrates a worthy and credible working environment for staff and students, encouraging teaching, research and academic development.
These narratives, among all others, are unprecedented and a punch that broke jinx.
Another lecturer who prefers not to be named told Agora that the “VC’s regime has caused a tremendous increase in all dimensions of the academic system, encourage young scholars to engage in academic strides and research development. This is the motivation behind the achievements” he concluded.
