About Ebonyi State University, (EBSU) Abakaliki:
The Ebonyi State University, Abakaliki was created based on the undying desire and passion of the people of Ebonyi State to have their own institution of higher learning. Just as the name implies, this University is owned and managed by the Ebonyi State Government. It was under the old Anambra State government that the history of this great school started. The school started as Anambra State University of technology.
Following the creation of Ebonyi State from the old Anambra State in 1996, the campus of Anambra State University of technology in Abakaliki was transformed to a University which is what is known today as the Ebonyi State University (EBSU).

The current Vice-Chancellor of this institution took over the leadership of the school from Prof. Fidelis Ogah in 2009, and he has brought about a remarkable turnaround in the fortunes of the institution.
