Dr. Obiageli Ezekwesili, a former Minister of Education, has been appointed to an international position.

The former Minister is now a member of the Nexford University Board of Directors in Washington, D.C.

This was said in a statement released by the online institution on Wednesday.

The former minister’s nomination was based on her extensive experience in producing long-term value and leading strategy in the education sector, according to the institution.

Ezekwesili was named alongside other education professionals and industry executives, including Driek Desmet, a former McKinsey Senior Partner.

The nominations were made due to Oby Ezekwesili’s track record and demonstrated leadership in strategy, according to the institution.

“They also follow Nexford’s successful $10.8m pre-Series A in June 2021 and a major partnership with Sterling Bank, one of Nigeria’s largest commercial banks, in August 2021,” it added.

The Chief Executive Officer of Nexford University, Fadl Al Tarzi, said, “We are delighted to welcome Driek and Oby to the board.”

Tarzi pointed out that the deep experience of Oby Ezekwesili in creating long-term value, driving strategy and knowledge of the education sector will be invaluable to the next stage of Nexford’s growth journey.

On her part, Ezekwesili said, “Having been on Nexford University’s advisory board, I am delighted to now join its Board of Directors to help advance the mission of this innovation-pioneering institution that is setting the pace in the delivery of world-class affordable education and producing high-quality talent at scale.”

Oby Ezekwesili is the coordinator of the Bring Back Our Girl, BBOG, campaign, a group that came into existence after over 100 schoolgirls were abducted from their boarding school in Chibok, Borno State, in 2014 by members of the Boko haram terrorist group.
