Ambassador Anderson Madubike, Nigeria’s High Commissioner to Australia, New Zealand, Fiji Islands, Papua New Guinea, Vanatu and the Pacifics, disclosed this during a courtesy visit to the University of Ibadan on Tuesday.

Madubike, who was received on behalf of the Vice Chancellor, Prof. Kayode O. Adebowale, by the Deputy Vice Chancellor (Administration), Prof. Ezekiel Olusola Ayoola, said his visit was to encourage the students/lecturers’ exchange programmes between UI and Australian universities.

He said that a special delegation from Australia would be in UI, Obafemi Awolowo University, OAU, University of Lagos (UNILAG) and University of Nigeria, Nsukka, in October 2023, to further explore opportunities of collaboration and partnerships.

Ayoola, who assured the visitor that UI was always ready to collaborate with other universities, added that the current management of the university was building upon the achievements of the past administrations with a view to laying a solid foundation for the future of the university.
