ANSU now Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu University COOU
The Anambra House of Assembly has effected the name change of Anambra State University (ANSU) to Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu University (COOU).
The legislation was approved on Thursday, 11th September, 2014 after the house committee on Education submitted it report which recommended the name change.
The Chairman, House Committee on Education, Mrs Rita Maduagwu (APGA Nnewi South 2), who recalled that the bill had been read the second time on the floor of the house on 17th December, 2013, said that the change of name is to honour the former Biafra hero.
In her reaction, the Speaker ANHA, Mrs Chinwe Nwaebili, said that the university would be a multi-campus institution located in Awka, Igbariam and Uli.
She said members of the committee on education did a good work and urged others to prove their worth on any assignment given at committee level or otherwise.
