It is with great joy and thanksgiving to God that I, Prof. Zana Itiunbe Akpagu, Vice Chancellor, University of Calabar, on behalf of the University Governing Council and Management heartily welcome all of us; staff, students and the entire University community back from the yuletide vacation. As we commence the 2019/2020 academic session, let me use this medium, to thank all of us, who in various ways have continued to support and contribute towards the actualization of the vision and aspirations of the present Management under my headship. I enjoin us all to rededicate ourselves to growing Unical into a high-end knowledge generation, dissemination and distribution vehicle that produces highly knowledgeable and skilled students with the competitive edge. My prayer, as always, is that, we all key into the vision of driving the Institution to an enviable height while also sustaining and building, on the progress already made, as well as, institutionalizing integrity and academic excellence. I implore us to work harmoniously and diligently towards raising the present standard of our University’s ranking, administrative effectiveness and staff/students welfare. I strongly believe in our collective ability and count on all of us, as we brace up to new challenges, pursuant to making this present administration a distinctive one. Let me reassure us that the Administration will continue to take deliberate steps to improve staff and students welfare so as to engender commitment and motivate staff to put in their best and infuse in our students a new enthusiasm and zeal in the pursuit of academic excellence. Have a fruitful academic session! Once again, welcome and happy New Year!! Thank you all and God bless.
