It is wonderful that after the first floor of a building is set, that very structure takes another architectural design. This is just the case with UNICAL Alumni uncompleted building, a project started about five years ago.

The said building was to serve as the secretariat of the Alumni of University of Calabar for convening of meetings, clearance of Alumni dues, and lots more.

Unfortunately, the purpose of this building has been defeated because of lack of management and unconcerned leaders.

The building has been ignored by management of the school and the leaders of the alumni. Seriously beaten by the elements over the past years, the structure has finally collapse.

Some students who spoke with our reporter blamed the development on the management of the institution who they accuse of wasting and mismanaging alumni funds.

“Apart from the millions of Naira pumped into the Association by illustrious members, every graduating student of the University pays an alumni fee of two thousand Naira, and yet the body has nothing to show for it.” One of them said.

Attempts to get reaction from the management of the school on the development were still unsuccessful at the time of filing this report as none of the management staff contacted was willing to comment.

It will be recalled that prominent Nigerians and top politicians like, Senator Godswill Akpabio (Senate Minority Leader), Senator Ita Enang, (Senior Special Adviser to the President on National Assembly Matters), Kate Henshaw, Barrister Efiok Cobham, immediate past Deputy Governor of Cross River State, Mr. Reuben Abati, SA Media and Publicity to the former President, are all alumni of the University of Calabar who are one time or the other have made contributions to the development of the association.
