“Obong Attah is not new to the developmental needs of a university. He developed the University of Calabar Master Plan as well as the University of Port Harcourt Emergency Campus Design. His experience in helping universities to take off effectively, informed the WDU’s Board of Trustees to choose Attah as Chancellor WDU.”
