The Peaceland University (PU), Enugu, one of the newly approved university, has appointed Arthur Eze as its pioneer Pro-Chancellor.
Peaceland University was among the 37 new institutions approved by the Federal Executive Council (FEC), three years after the promoters, planning and implementation committee of the university approached the National Universities Commission (NUC).
Addressing newsmen, the Public Relations Officer of the institution, Ihemegbunem Okafor, said Peaceland University was an offspring of the Peaceland project founded and funded by a Swiss mother and lover of education, Frau Pia Meier Knuesel, adding that Eze shares much in common with the woman.
He said Eze is unarguably one of Nigeria’s foremost philanthropists who has supported and single-handedly undertaken ventures that touch human lives and put smiles on faces of both the high and low.
He expressed the gratitude of the institution to Eze and assured the public that Peaceland University would be one of the universities to reckon with in the country in the shortest possible time.
