Nigerian Billionaire Arthur Eze Plans To Establish A University

Image may contain: 1 person
Arthur Eze is a Nigerian businessman and philanthropist who founded an international energy company. Eze is reportedly one of the wealthiest men in Africa. As a descendent from tribal royalty, Eze is usually referred to as Prince Arthur Eze. 
In 1970, Eze attended secondary school in Nkwerre , Nigeria. He studied chemical and mechanical engineering at California State University, Long Beach from 1974 to 1978. 
In 1999, Eze founded Atlas Oranto Petroleum. The company owns assets in Nigeria, Liberia, Guinea , Gambia and the
UK .In 2010 Eze made $200M selling oil blocks in Liberia.

Nigerian billionaire, Arthur Eze reportedly has plans to establish
a University as confirmed by former Aviation Minister, Osita Chidoka in a Facebook post he shared.
According to Osita, few days ago he continued on a self imposed task of engaging Igbo Billionaires to start secondary schools, Polytechnics, Universities or adopt an existing one for full funding and it just yielded fruits. He further revealed that Arthur Eze now has plans to establish a University which he will work effortlessly on, to twin with a foreign university and ensure the Engineering school is of a world standard.

A few days ago I continued on my self imposed task of engaging Igbo Billionaires to start secondary schools, Polytechnics, Universities or adopt an existing one for full funding. I met with Prince Arthur Eze at his residence in Enugu to follow up and encourage him in his quest to establish a University. We have had this discussion over the past 5 years and gradually got to the point were he has committed to establishing one now.
Arthur is an interesting and intriguing personality. His generosity is legendary and his world view an outcome of his maverick nature.
We have an agreement. Eze na Ukpo has committed to the university project. I will help (at no cost) in the effort to twin the school with a foreign university and ensure the Engineering school is of a world standard (he is a US trained Engineer).
Before Warren Buffet started his Giving Away project,The Giving Pledge, Arthur had always talked about the futility of keeping wealth. He had always insisted that he will give away his vast fortune before death and he is doing that.
Yesterday at the Cathedral of Good Shepard Enugu he gave a Cheque of 20 million Naira and asked that the Church should take 10M and share 10M to all the poor people who came to church. Again he asked all rich people to give away to the less privileged.
The university must happen. I will continue to engage him to Stay focused and avoid the ever present distractions he faces.
Hopefully I will get the other Billionaires, known to me, to commit soon. Education is the key to the future competitiveness of the South East and Nigeria.
Investing in education or subsidizing it for those who can’t afford it, is the best investment of all times. Taa bu gbo

Nicest one

Mac David Akwuking sure, I believe the school will be cheaper

He is a great man and more than a philantropist

Endy Edeson

Onwukwe Enyinnaya Bright yes he is a great man. Venturing into education will enable him subsidise fees and make private university affordable.

Respect sir! God will bless you more...

There is no doubt, Arthur Eze is a great son of the state but sometimes, I found it difficult to reconcile his political dispensation with mine. He is always on wrong political side with mine, though I am not politician but always in love with any political alliance that protects the interests of Igbo men and women.
