Bayelsa varsity gets acting VC


Bayelsa State Governor, Seriake Dickson, has approved the appointment of Prof. Samuel Gowon Edoumiekumo as Acting Vice-Chancellor of the ‎state owned Niger Delta University (NDU).

A statement from Dickson’s Chief Press Secretary, Mr. Daniel Iworiso-Markson, said the new appointment followed the expiration of the tenure of the former Vice-Chancellor of the institution, Prof. Humprey Ogoni, on May 17‎.

The statement said the approval was in strict compliance to the traditions of the university system which allow the deputy Vice-Chancellor in charge of administration to act until a substantive vice chancellor is appointed.


Edoumiekumo‎ was born on April 30, 1970 and obtained his First School Leaving Certificate from Akeindenowei primary school, Toru Angiama and West Africa School Certificate from Ajeromi Ifelodun High School, Lagos, in 1982 and 1988.

He holds a Bachelor of Science Degree, Master of Science Degree and two Doctor of Philosophy degrees from the University of Port Harcourt (UNIPORT) and the University of Nsukka (UNN) in Economics.
