…Urges staff to eschew inordinate pursuit of illicit material gains

The immediate-past Director of the Owerri Study Centre, National Open University of Nigeria (NOUN), Dr. Theresa Ucheoma Ettu, has urged the staff of Port Harcourt Study Centre in Port Harcourt, Rivers State to draw closer to their creator and eschew the pursuit of mundane things that profit less.

The immediate past Director of Owerri study centre, Imo State gave this charge during her inaugural meeting with staff of Port Harcourt Centre, Friday, February 16, 2024, as she took over the mantle 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 reiterated that her mission at Port Harcourt centre was to build a positive, wholesome relationship among staff members.

She added that she was bent on creating a stimulating and conducive environment for staff and learners to perform optimally, with the help of the university management.

Meanwhile, the renowned preacher of the gospel of Christ expressed her profound gratitude to the staff of the centre for the warm reception accorded her on arrival as she expressed optimism that together “we 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 the 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.
