Chairman/CEO, Nigerians in Diaspora Commission (NIDCOM), Hon. Abike Dabiri-Erewa, has congratulated Dr Anne-Marie Imafidon, MBE on her appointment as the Chancellor of Glasgow Caledonian University, UK.

Director, Media, Public Relations and Protocols, NIDCOM, Abdur-Rahman Balogun, made this known in a press statement in Abuja.

He said the NIDCOM noss in a congratulatory message, described the appointment of Dr. Imafidon as a chancellor as well-deserved going by her antecedents and her quest for success.

The NIDCOM boss said Nigeria was proud of the genius achievements of Anne-Marie, breaking records and setting unimaginable standards at her young age always that has earned her the prestigious assignment to continue to serve humanity.

“While praying for her success and impactful tenure, the NiDCOM boss acknowledged the receipt of her invitation to attend the prestigious Chancellor’s installation slated for July 2, as a special guest of Dr. Anne-Marie Imafidon, saying it is a great honour to her.

“She urged her not to rest on her oars by being a trail blaizer and continue to motivate others to be the best in all their endeavours,” the statement read in part.

According to Balogun, “Dr. Imafidon, apart from being the youngest leader of a non private university and youngest scientist to become chancellor of a multidisciplinary university, has now become the youngest chancellor of a major university.

“This feat she has attained began with her siblings when they joined the ExcellenceIEducation.org.uk mentorship programme. A programme that nurtures innercity kids.

“While there, she achieved global recognition as the youngest person to attain A-Level in computing and Mathematics followed by a scholarship at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, USA at a young age of 13.”

He noted that, “Dr. Anne- Marie in a statement said “To be welcomed to an institution that stands for the common good is one of the greatest honour of my life.”
