    Peaceland University Appoints Arthur Eze Pro-Chancellor

    The newly approved Peaceland University, Enugu has appointed oil mogul and philanthropist, Arthur Eze, as its pioneer pro-chancellor.

    Accepting the appointment announced and as a show of commitment, he doled out N500 million to support the development of the university.

    Peaceland University, Enugu was among the 37 new universities approved by the Federal Executive Council (FEC) last week, three years after the promoters, planning and implementation committee of the university approached National Universities Commission (NUC) for a possible establishment of a university.

    The university authorities, yesterday, said the choice of their would-be pioneer pro-chancellor was a fruit of prayer and hard search, adding that, “for several years, we searched for a man or a woman whose spirit shares with Mama Pia’s spirit that cuts across human race, colour, etc., and whose giving goes beyond the shores of a nation.”

    Addressing newsmen in Enugu, the Public Relations Officer of the institution, Ihemegbunem Okafor, said the university was an offspring of  the Peaceland project founded and funded by a Swiss mother, lover of education, Frau Pia Meier Knuesel (a.k.a. Mama Pia), adding that Eze shares much in common with the woman.

    He said: “Eze, a pillar and promoter of academic emancipation through quality education, a philanthropist of the highest order, a consummated oil magnate, humanitarian par excellence, global business guru of inter-continental connectivity, became the best choice for this prestigious position. He is indubitably and unarguably one of Nigeria’s foremost philanthropists who has provided, solidly supported and single-handedly undertaken ventures that touch human livesand put smiles on faces of both the high and the low.

    “His magnanimity and generosity cut across ethnic and religious lines, classes, climes and creeds.  There is hardly any area this great man has not beamed his light of benevolence. They include institutions of learning of all levels, rural development and infrastructure, human capital development, women and youth empowerment, church buildings, projects and programmes executions, etc.”

    “In his usual magnanimity, this simple and humble man of charity, an apostle and prince of immense grace, lover of development and progress, practical Christian and peace builder, acknowledged his appointment as the pro-chancellor of Peaceland University, Enugu and announced his support of the university, with a great sum of N5 million.”

    He expressed the gratitude of the institution to Eze and assured the public the university would be one of the universities to reckon with in the country in the shortest possible time.
