Prof. Amalo Ndu Dibofori-Orji: AdasiScience True African Hero of the Month- Feb 2021

“He makes everything beautiful in His appointed time” are the graceful words on the lips of every member of Commodore (Engr.) J.C. Orji’s family as they give thanks to God on Sunday, 28th February, 2021 in Port-Harcourt, specially for the elevation of their Queen to the rank of a Professor! Indeed, only God could have made this dream come true!


The story of Amalo Ndu fondly called ‘Amy’ by her loved ones is that of a young Nigerian girl who found favour in the sight of God and men, held on to her dreams despite all odds to ascend to the zenith of her chosen career; making her a symbol of hope and success to every God fearing and determined African child!


Professor Dibofori-Orji, Amalo Ndu, was born on 3rd April, 1963 to the family of late Chief Ndu Dibofori and late Mrs. Arlene Dibofori, (Nee Osigwe) both of Mbiama-Engenni in Ahoada West Local Government Area of Rivers State.


‘Amy’ was a favorite child of her parents, cool headed yet a ‘stubborn goal-getter’. She will settle at nothing until she achieve her goals. After her elementary and secondary education, she never gave up her desire for higher studies but kept pressing on.
