It is with a very heavy heart but with total submission to the will of God, the Creator and Manager of life that I received the news of the unfortunate demise of my immediate boss and predecessor, the 5th Vice-Chancellor of our great University, Professor Francis Ogbonnaya Otunta. I am in grief; the entire University is in grief.
Prof. Otunta, who left here just a month ago, was a strong energetic man who believed in doing things the right way at all times. He was full of energy and brought positive change and reforms to our academic system. He will be sorely missed.
On behalf of the Council, Senate, Staff and students of Michael Okpara University of Agriculture, Umudike, I condole with his family, his community, Nkpoghoro Ehugbo, his State, Ebonyi, his home University, the University of Benin (where he was a Professor of Mathematics), and pray to God to give all of us the fortitude to bear the heavy loss occasioned by his death.
May we at this point consider the words of Job, “Naked I came from my mother’s womb, and naked shall I return there. The Lord gave, and the Lord has taken away, Blessed be the name of the Lord” (Job 1:21), and be consoled.

Professor Maduebibisi Ofo Iwe
