Chief Press Secretary to the governor, Sam Obwuemeodo, said that the four were part of the six universities, four Polytechnics and two Colleges of Education established by the government.
He said that, with the latest development, out of the six newly established universities by the administration of Governor Okorocha, four of the universities have been issued Operational Licenses.
