The University of Calabar (UNICAL) has announced 20 March as the new resumption date for academic activities following the postponement of the gubernatorial and state house of assembly elections by INEC.
In a release issued by the Registrar of the institution, Gabriel Egbe, the new date for the resumption of academic activities is now 20th March as against the earlier date of 14 March.
“In line with the Independent National Electoral Commission’s decision to shift the Gubernatorial and State Houses of Assembly election, the Vice Chancellor has approved the extension of the academic break embarked upon by members of the University of Calabar community.
“Accordingly, staff and students are now to return to the campus on March 20, 2023, when academic activities are expected to fully resume.
Staff on essential duties are, however, advised to continue to discharge their official duties as scheduled.
“Meanwhile, members of the expanded management are please enjoined to use this break period to put necessary machinery in place for full academic activities upon resumption.
“On behalf of the Vice Chancellor, I pray for very peaceful and successful elections while advising all our staff who would be engaged as INEC ad-hoc staff to remain good ambassadors of our prestigious university, as they discharge such responsibilities,” he said.
