How Federal Government Dissolved UNIPORT And OAU’s Governing Council
The Federal Government through the Minister of Education Mallam Adamu Adamu has announced the dissolution of the Governing Council of Obafemi Awolowo University (OAU) and University of Port harcourt (UNIPORT).
The announcement was made yesterday on the network news of the Nigerian Television Authority (NTA).
This followed the agitation that followed the appointment of new VC’s in the institutions.
The announcement equally directs the immediate suspension of the appointment of VCs in the institutions.
Since its founding in 1971 Uniport has grown fast due to global containerisation.
Uniport was founded in 1971. At the time the company was located near Schiehaven and specialised in the handling of general cargo. In the early seventies Uniport grew fast due to global containerisation.
Because of this expansion and because of various take-overs Uniport decided to move to its current location at Waalhaven in 1996. Here Uniport developed into a versatile terminal for both short sea and deep sea. The terminal currently handles over 800.000 TEU per year. Uniport is part of C. Steinweg Handelsveem B.V.
