He said: “By a letter from the Federal Ministry of Education dated May 29, Prof. Regina Ogali, a Deputy Vice Chancellor (Administration) will oversee the affairs of UNIPORT.

“Ogali will oversee the affairs of the university while the incumbent vice chancellor, Prof. Ndowa Lale, proceeds on his leave starting June 12.

The university spokesman said that Mr Lale was appointed vice chancellor of the university on July 2015 for a single five-year tenure

“A letter signed on behalf of Minister of Education, Adamu Adamu by the Permanent Secretary in the ministry, Sonny Echono announced Ogali’s appointment.

“The minister wished Lale well in his future endeavours following his successful tenure in office as the 8th vice chancellor of UNIPORT,” Wodi said.
