GUU honours jurist, Izima, posthumously
The Management of Gregory University, Uturu, Abia State, has named the institution’s Board of Trustees and Governing Council’s chamber after a renowned jurist, Justice Cyprain Izima.
Chancellor and proprietor of the university, Dr. Gregory Ibe, who spoke at the formal presentation ceremony eulogised the unique distinguished lifestyle of the late legal luminary, who while alive, epitomised the virtues of honesty, morality and integrity in the conduct of his legal profession.
Recalling the supportive role, played by the late jurist during the formative phase of the young institution, Ibe enjoined his descendants to sustain the sterling qualities and numerous legacies of their father.
In his opening address, registrar of the institution, Dr. Austin Orisakwe, informed the gathering that the late high court judge, apart from functioning as the pioneer chancellor of the Anglican Diocese of Aba-Ngwa North, also had the rare honour of administering the statutory oath of office on the premiere board of trustees and governing council of the university.
Speaking on behalf of late Justice Izima’s family, his son, Obinna Izima, an engineer, appreciated the chancellor and the entire GUU community for the honour bestowed on their family, pledging to uphold the values and principles their late father lived for.
