The presidential candidate of the Labour Party (LP), Peter Obi has reacted to the appointment of a Nigerian professor, David Mba, as the vice-chancellor of Birmingham City University.
Obi disclosed that over the years, Prof Mba has remained active in the academic sector of the United Kingdom where he served major roles in different major institutions.
The former Anambra governor noted that Mba’s journey to greatness speaks volumes of the great intellectual potential that Nigerians are endowed with and “why we must pay more attention to and invest more in our educational sector.
“The good education Prof Mba received at various stages of his life placed him on the global stage. No nation raises great and responsible citizens without education,” Obi said in a tweet dated Saturday, July 22, 2023.
“I wish Prof David Mba well in his new position and urge him to seek ways of contributing to the development of our dear nation, Nigeria, as we struggle to build the New Nigeria of our dreams.”
