The Governing Council, Management, Staff and Students of the University of Calabar have felicitated with the CrossRiverWatch Team on the celebration of the 3rd Anniversary of the media platform.
A goodwill message signed by the Vice Chancellor of the University, Professor James Epoke says that the institution is happy with the great leap by the management and staff of CrossRiverWatch so far culminating in the celebration of their 3rd anniversary and public lecture.
Epoke explains that the University fully appreciates the cordial relations between the institution and CrossRiverWatch in the past, and that the theme of this year’s lecture “The Reality Of A Non-Oil Economy: Prospects and Challenges” chosen to draw attention to the very rich potentials of Cross River State was apt to a State that has been deprived of her oil revenue.
Part of the goodwill message reads, “The University of Calabar appreciates the mutual benefits in the relationship that exist between both organizations”, adding that the theme of the lecture “is germane to the aspirations of the Cross River state people and focus of the present state government led by His Excellency, Senator Professor Ben Ayade”.
“…Accept our sincere congratulations on your giant strides in the hope that you will continue to reach for greater heights”, Epoke maintained.
The Vice Chancellor also felicitated with the State Governor, Senator Ben Ayade on his attainment of 100 days in office, and posited that as an institution, University of Calabar remains committed to partnering with all innovations that are positive aimed at enhancing growth and development of the human race.
“The doggedness, enthusiasm, and passion with which he has applied himself to governance is indicative of better days for the generality of Cross Riverians”, he asserted.
