Professor Kingsley Moghalu, former Deputy Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria and a presidential candidate in the 2023 general elections, has been appointed as an Academic Visitor to the University of Oxford, UK.
In a recent statement made available to the press, Moghalu said that the appointment was for the period of the University’s Michelmas Term, running from October 2021 to December 2021.
“Moghalu will be an Oxford Martin Visiting Fellow hosted jointly by Oxford’s Oxford Martin School, a social science research centre, established to tackle the most pressing opportunities and challenges of the 21st century, and the Department of Politics and International Relations.
“As an academic Visitor, Prof. Moghalu will give a lecture at Oxford on a topic in political economy, lead a seminar on the Nigerian economy, and complete work on two forthcoming books.
“He will also share his knowledge and experience with students and the teaching faculty at Oxford, and hold consultations with members of the UK political, business and civil society communities,” the statement said.
Earlier this year, Moghalu joined the African Democratic Congress (ADC). He had contested for President under the umbrella of the Young Progressives Party (YPP) in 2019.
