University of Lomé Gets New Chancellor

(Togo First) - The University of Lomé (UL) has a new Chancellor: Prof. Adama Mawulé Kpodar. He has just been appointed and will be taking the place of Prof. Komla Dodzi Kokoroko, who headed the university for seven years. 

Before his appointment, Prof. Kpodar was the director general of the National School of Administration or Ecole National d’Administration (ENA). 

Dodzi Kokoroko was Chancellor of the UL for two terms. During the period, several projects aimed at modernizing the university were carried out. These include construction and rehabilitation works, and curricular improvements. The Polytechnic School of Lomé was established within the period. Prof. Kokoroko is also the Minister of Primary, Secondary, and Technical Education, and Craftsmanship as well. 

Under Kokoroko, and in three years only, the UL gained 38 places in Africa’s top universities ranking. It is now among the top 200 universities on the continent. 

In parallel to the appointment of Prof. Adama Kpodar, who replaces Prof. Kokoroko, Prof. Tachriè Kokou was called to head the University of Kara in the north. Kokou, who is also the president of the Société des Sciences Mathématiques du Togo (SSMaT) and Professor Emeritus in Mathematics, replaces Prof. Komlan Sanda as Chancellor.
