Convocation: Minister inaugurates completed TETFund projects abandoned in UniCal

The Minister of Education, Prof. Tahir Mamman, has inaugurated some completed projects that were abandoned at the University of Calabar, (UniCal) in commemoration of the institution’s 36th convocation.

The projects, which included the Mass Communication Department building, three pavilions for lectures and examinations and two hostels, were financed by the Tertiary Education Trust Fund (TETFund).

Addressing newsmen in Calabar after the inauguration, Mamman said he was quite impressed with the completion of the projects in the institution.

According to him, “there is nothing more pleasing than to see projects completed and facilities available for students use to support academic activities.

“I am also especially happy for the hostels following the spate of insecurity in the nation.

“I encourage the present administration in the school to continue providing more facilities, and ensure the ones that have been inaugurated are maintained to keep them in top form,” he said.

He said it was important to keep the projects clean and well kept, adding that both staff and students of the institution needed environment conducive to  focus on their work.

He also appealed to the students of the institution to use the facilities responsibly.

Prof. Florence Obi, Vice Chancellor of UniCal, said she was honoured by the presence of the minister and Executive Secretary of TETFund, Mr Sonny Echono, as part of the team for the inauguration.

Obi,  however, said she expected more support from the Federal Government and TETFund to have more projects in the university.

“I am especially glad that a representative of TETFund is here, I hope having seen the projects they will be impressed to give us more interventions for more projects,” she said.

The Voice Media Trust, (VMT NEWS) reports that the inauguration preceded the convocation ceremony of 438 PhD graduands.

The first degree, Masters and Diploma graduands convocated on March 22.
