Nigeria’s non-resident Ambassador to Fiji, Anderson Madubike, led a delegation to visit the University of the South Pacific (USP) yesterday to discuss opportunities for collaboration.
He was received by USP Deputy Vice Chancellor and Vice President (Regional Campuses and Global Engagement), Dr. Giulio Masasso Tu’ikolongahau Pāunga, who briefed Ambassador Madubike on the progress of the university and its commitment to ensuring quality education in the Pacific region.
Mr. Madubike said he was delighted to visit USP, a renowned institution that could be a catalyst for future cooperation in the education sector.
He also expressed his aspiration to work with the university on creating spaces for student exchange.
“We are here to serve humanity, and when we work together the world is a better place, so let’s share the opportunities we have to help each other.”
With over 250 universities, Ambassador Madubike said Nigeria had the platform to welcome USP students.
He hopes USP will take advantage of Nigeria’s strengths for an enriched future.
Dr Pāunga said the university is always open to new collaborations and is delighted that Ambassador Madubike has chosen to visit the Laucala campus; a testament to the USP’s position.
