The immediate-past Director of the Owerri Study Centre, National Open University of Nigeria (NOUN), Dr. Theresa Ucheoma Ettu, has taken over the reins of leadership at the Port Harcourt Study Centre in Port Harcourt, Rivers State, as the acting director.

Ettu, who replaced Dr. Nnenna Nancy Chukwuma, the immediate-past director of the centre, assumed her new post on Wednesday, February 14, 2024.

The new director, who held her inaugural meeting with staff of the centre, on Friday, February 16, 2024, told NOUN News correspondent that her mission at Port Harcourt centre is to build positive, wholesome relationship among staff members and equally create a stimulating and conducive environment for staff and learners to perform optimally, with the help of the university management.

She expressed her appreciation to staff of the centre for the warm reception accorded her on arrival and said she was upbeat that together they will have a wonderful working relationship.

Ettu, who holds a PhD in Guidance and Counseling from the University of Lagos, vented her expertise as she counselled staff of the centre to embrace forgiveness and allow whatever wounded emotions they may have nursed in time past to heal.

She further charged them to draw closer to God and to eschew inordinate pursuit of illicit material gains that would fetch them untold woes. 

"It is better to have five hundred thousand naira in your account while God meets your every need than to have five million naira and incur problems worth twenty five million naira," she said.
