Asari-Dokubo establishes own university

The leader of the Niger Delta People's Volunteer Force, NDPVF, Mr. Muhajid Asari- Dokubo has joined the swelling rank of private university proprietors with his establishment of a university in the neighbouring Republic of Benin, PREMIUM TIMES reported on Friday.

Asari-Dokubo, who already owns a soccer academy in the West African country and another one in Abuja, Nigeria, said the university, which will be known as King Amachree African University, KAAU, had already been accredited to commence degree programmes beginning September 2014.

According to PREMIUM TIMES, Asari-Dokubo disclosed in an interview in Abuja that the proposed university, named after his ancestor, was a product of his two existing institutions in Benin Republic, namely King Amachree Automobile/ICT Royal Academy and King Amachree Arts Academy. Both of them, he added, currently award Diploma to their students.

Asari-Dokubo said he chose to establish the institutions in Benin Republic because he did not only live there, but had adopted it as his country.

"What we have now, we are awarding only diploma now. By next September, Insha Allah, the university will start," said Asari-Dokubo, who dropped out of the University of Calabar.

"For now we have King Amachree Automobile/ICT Royal Academy and King Amachree Arts Academy. Two of them were merged. We have merged the two of them into King Amachree African University. King Amachree is my great ancestor. He was King of the Kingdom of new Calabar."
