The University of Calabar, Calabar has held its 29th convocation ceremony for graduating students of the various faculties of the institutions.

The convocation ceremony which held at the Abram Ordia Stadium within the institution was host to dignitaries; from the Deputy Governor, Prof. Ivara Esu, former Governor of Cross River state Mr. Donald Duke who was awarded with a Honorary Doctorate Degree in Law, Sen. Florence Ita-Giwa also a recipient of a honorary Doctorate degree in Political science, the Speaker of both the Cross River state House of Assembly and the Akwa Ibom State House of Assembly, Hon. John Gaul and Hon. Aloysius Luke, traditional rulers, parents and staffs of the institution.

Declaring the occasion open, the Pro-chancellor of the institution, Dr. Emmanuel Iwuyanwu said the management of the institution is doing all within its powers to raise the standard of research and teaching in the institution.

He added that the management fully backs President Muhammad Buhari in his fight against corruption which he states has been militating against the growth of the nation.

“We in the University of Calabar are strongly behind the President in his fight against corruption. It was based on our zero-tolerance for corruption that we were the first school in Nigeria to offer a compulsory credit units course on anti-corruption with syllables developed by the ICPC.”

Also speaking at the ceremony, the Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Zana Akpagu said that he hopes to lift the institution which is currently ranked 9th in Nigeria to become one of the best in Africa.

“As a former student of this school, all my actions will be based on the fact that I have a responsibility to which I cannot afford to disappoint”.

He further stated that the graduates have been certified worthy in character and learning and are now deemed ready to contribute their quota to the world knowing that they are ambassadors of the school.

The institution graduated 7,222 students with 4,868 graduating with first degrees, 1,402 with Diplomas and 952 with higher degrees.
