Chairman of THISDAY/ARISE News Channel, Prince Nduka Obaigbena popularly known as The Duke, has donated the sum of N1 billion to Western Delta University, Oghara, Delta State, owned by former Governor of Delta State, Chief James Ibori.
Obaigbena said that the donation was made on behalf of his broadcast station, to set up Media and Technology School to enhance the school’s development.
While Speaking at 15th Founders day celebration of the University last Saturday, April 29, 2023, Obaigbena described Ibori “as a long-time friend and a people-oriented leader who is ever ready to sacrifice for the development of his people.”
The media mogul commended Ibori for his large heart and great vision for establishing the university.
He noted that running a university was money-intensive and the promoters do it virtually for development purposes and not really for profit-making.
“I’m at the 15th Founders’ Day celebration of the Western Delta University to rejoice with, and encourage, a friend who is giving back to society what it needed to grow,” Obaigbena said.
Former Governor of Ekiti State, Dr. Kayode Fayemi delivered the lecture at the event with the title, “Sub-National Governance, the Ekiti State Example.”
