Vice-Chancellor of Ebonyi State University (EBSU), Professor Chigozie Ogbu, on Tuesday said he has not resigned his position contrary to speculation.
There were speculations in the state especially on social media that Ogbu had resigned his position following an alleged disagreement between the university and its visitor, Governor Dave Umahi. But the Vice-Chancellor said he had no intention of resigning as there was no rift between the management and the state government.
Speaking to journalists in Abakaliki, Ogbu, a former Deputy Governor of the state and former Chief Medical Director of the defunct Ebonyi State University Teaching Hospital (EBSUTH), described the rumour as false, intended and unintended.
He said: “We all woke up to the news like you heard that the Vice-Chancellor has resigned but that is absolutely false in anyway, intended or unintended. So, the Vice-Chancellor has not, has no intention to resign for any reason.”
