Governor Nyesom Wike has offered James Daniel, a disabled student of the Rivers State University with N50 million and automatic appointment as a university lecturer for bagging a Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) degree.

Mr Wike announced the monetary reward and appointment on Saturday at the 33rd convocation of the state university in Port Harcourt.

He said the honour bestowed on Mr Daniel was in recognition of his academic excellence and for being an inspiration to other disabled persons.

The governor cautioned state-owned universities to stop indiscriminate conferment of doctoral degrees on all manner of questionable candidates and people of material influence.

He emphasised that serious universities guard their reputation jealousy and award doctoral degrees only to students who have gone through years of rigorous intellectual research and interrogation and whose dissertation is independently adjudged to be sound and contributory to new learning.

He described as unfortunate, the current trend and practice in universities to award doctoral degrees indiscriminately, like chieftaincy titles, to all manner of questionable candidates.

Mr Wike also assured that the infrastructural development in the university started by his administration, including the four new campuses at Ahoada, Emohua, Ebara and Sakpenwa, will be completed by the second quarter of 2022.
