Okorocha Rochas, Imo State Governor To Build First Free University In Nigeria
The Rochas Foundation, a charity organization dedicated to the educational development of the less-privileged, is developing facilities to open Nigeria’s first free university. The Foundation currently owns and runs five secondary schools around the country offering free education to indigent students. The schools are located in Ogboko (in Imo State); Owerri, Kano, Ibadan, and Jos. The Principal of the Rochas Foundation College in Jos, Mr Ugbobor Daniel, spoke of the ongoing preparation to establish the free university while receiving a bus donated to the Jos College yesterday. Daniel said the university is to be sited in Ogboko, the birthplace of founder of the Rochas Foundation Inc., Chief Rochas Okorocha.
