Pioneered by a group of the first alumni of the University of Nigeria, Nsukka (UNN), the University of Nigeria
Alumni Association (UNAA), Nsukka was formed in 1963. Mr. B. I. C. Ijomah (as he then was, but now late, a Professor of Political Sociology)
was the President. He was also the first National President of the Association following its inaugural National Convention at the Nsukka
campus of the University on 29th August, 1965, which marked the formal establishment of the National body of the University of Nigeria
Alumni Association (UNAA). Over the years, the Association has continued to increase in branches in different parts of the country and
in diaspora. The spread of the Association is global, having over forty branches across Nigeria including Cameroon, the United Kingdom and
about five states in the United States of America. It is one of the most virile, vibrant, fastest and leading alumni movements in Nigeria
with its members found in all spheres of human endeavours contributing significantly to national development.
