The Vice Chancellor, Cross River University of Technology, CRUTECH Prof. Anthony Owan Eno has charged his institution’s new Students’ Union Government, SUG team to shun cultism.
The call was made in Calabar at the inauguration ceremony of the SUG where the VC also charged the entire students to stop defacing the buildings of the school with posters by posting them at the designated places.
The VC represented by his Deputy Vice Chancellor Academics, Prof. Akon Joshua told the 11th students’ union leaders that leadership is not easy and it’s not by students might but that of God Almighty that they are called to serve and should not abuse the opportunity.
He enjoined them to take their studies serious because if they don’t organize themselves well their academics will suffer.
The Chairman Students Independent Electoral Committee, SIEC Dr. Uduak Usien Effiong, commended the students for coordinating themselves cordially during the election process.
He praised the E-voting system adopted some years back by the institution disclosing that it took five days for the election to be conducted describing the exercise as free and fair. Effiong maintained that “I am happy leaving office with my legs, hands and head intact”.
In his speech, the Emeritus SUG President, Comrade Iwara Omini lauded his exco and the university management for their immense contribution to his administration’s successful feats which he said would not have been possible if not for their cooperation.
Iwara prayed for the success of his successor and enjoined both management and students to support the new tenure even more than his administration.
In his acceptance speech, the new SUG President of CRUTECH, Comrade Idege Omang Steven pledged to lead by example in all his endeavors.
