The Vice Chancellor of the University of Calabar, Prof. Florence Obi has assured the National Universities Commission (NUC) team of maximum cooperation in the ongoing Resource Verification Exercise in the institution.
Prof. Florence Obi gave the assurance at the Institution’s Council Chambers when the NUC Resource Verification team paid a working visit on her.
The First female VC of the institution who underscored the importance of the verification exercise said she would work with the NUC team to ensure a hitch-free exercise, adding that her administration would strive hard to enthrone academic excellence.
Prof. Florence who said, human and material resources are in place also lamented that the level of destruction occasioned by the #ENDSARS# protest had greatly affected some programmes, which the institution was yet to fix.
She, however, charged the team to carry out their work without fear or favor, saying her administration would not compromise standards.
Earlier, Mrs. Anthonia Bawa, an NUC staff, who spoke on behalf of the NUC team congratulated the VC on her emergence as the First female Chief Executive of the University.
He said the team was on a visit to assess the various programmes of the University to ensure it meets NUC standards.
According to him, the team was not on a witch-hunting mission, saying it would work with an open mind to assess the human and material resources available in the Faculties of Pharmacy, Education, Environmental Sciences and Social Sciences respectively.
The event was marked with a group photograph.
