Professor of Education, Prof Florence Obi has emerged the 11th Vice-Chancellor of the University of Calabar.
Prof Obi, defeated about 12 other contestants to emerge the first female Vice-Chancellor of the 45-year-old institution.
She succeeds Professor Zana Akpagu and is expected to assume office on the 1st of December 2020.
Speaking after the selection, the Chairman of the Governing Council of the institution and Pro-Chancellor, Senator Nkechi Nwaogu said the exercise was transparent and followed the guidelines laid by the Ministry of Education.
She said Professor Obi’s emergence is a victory for the women and said the 10th Governing Council expects her to build on what the outgoing Vice-Chancellor had done.
“What we assured the university community is that we were going to be transparent, open, fair and just.
“There is a guideline from the Ministry of Education as to how to interview for the appointment and there are so many parameters we had to look into and that is exactly what we did.
“What I expect from her is to look at what the outgoing Vice-Chancellor has done, governance is a continuum, start from where he has stopped and ensure there is integration even amongst all the people that contested with her”, Senator Nwaogu said.
In her remarks, Professor Obi said she gives all the glory to God and promised to run an inclusive administration.
”I’m happy and return all the glory to God.
“Just received my appointment letter from the 12th Council as Vice-Chancellor elect. The process was free and fair, and I promise to run an inclusive administration”, Professor Obi said.
