The University of Calabar (Unical) has announced its first female Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Florence Banku-Obi.
Unical Pro-Chancellor and Chairman Governing Council, Sen. Nkechi Nwaogu, who disclosed this on Friday in Calabar, said the process of the selection was transparent.
Nwaogu said that the Council had assured the 13 contestants for the position of a transparent, fair and just selection process.
She explained that they used the guidelines set up by the Federal Ministry of Education on the conduct of interview for the appointment of a Vice-Chancellor.
“At the end of the day, we had a brand new first female VC of the University in the last 45 years. The interview was transparent and some of the contestants are part of our council.
“What I expect of her is to look at what the outgoing VC has done because governance is a continuous process. She should invite all those who contested with her and build a team.
“No one person can execute the programmes without the integration of other erudite administrators that presented their CVs yesterday.
“She should be an integrative agent and I expect her to look inward on the areas of internally generated revenue and pluck the areas.
“She needs to motivate staff and students of the school and as an erudite Professor and a mother, I know that she will bring all these to bear,” she said.
She congratulated Banku-Obi and wished her the best in her tenure.
Speaking, Banku-Obi, said she was elated and happy, adding that she returned all the glory to God.
