Following series of petitions and alleged sabotage of the Rescue Mission Free Education Policy, the newly re-inaugurated Governor, Owelle Rochas Okorocha, in a swift move, yesterday Monday June 1, 2015, appointed, Prof. (Mrs.) Adaobi Obasi as Acting Vice-Chancellor of the Imo State University (IMSU) Owerri. She replaces the embattled Professor of landscape Architecture, Aloysius Ukachukwu Awuzie whose tenure has been turbulent with several allegations of attempt to scuttle and discredit the well thought-out free education policy of the present administration.

Contrary to rumours making round in the Imo State University environment that the ten day old strike of lecturers has been called off, the Academic Staff Union of Universities in the campus have denied calling off the strike and has threatened to deal with any of its members that defies the union directives.
