Former dean of the School of Business and Entrepreneurship at the American University of Nigeria (AUN): Linus Osuagwu has been appointed pioneer Vice Chancellor for Eastern Palm University owned by the Imo State Government of Nigeria, licensed by the National Universities Commission (NUC) of as the 42nd state-owned university in Nigeria.
As a respected professor of the academia, his appointment has been approved by the Governor of Imo Sate and Visitor to the university, Rochas Okorocha.
