Education professor Professor Florence Obi has become the 11th Vice Chancellor of the University of Calabar.

Professor Obi defeated 12 other contestants to emerge as the 45-year-old institution’s first female vice-chancellor.

She succeeds Professor Zana Akpagu and is expected to take office on December 1, 2020.

In statements after the selection, the president of the Governing Council of the institution and pro-chancellor, Senator Nkechi Nwaogu said that the exercise was transparent and followed the guidelines established by the Ministry of Education.

He said the emergence of Professor Obi is a victory for women and said the Tenth Governing Council hopes it will build on what the outgoing Vice Chancellor has done.

“What we assured the university community is that we were going to be transparent, open, fair and just.

“There is a guide from the Ministry of Education on how to interview for the appointment and there are so many parameters that we had to analyze and that is exactly what we did.

“What I expect from her is that she looks at what the outgoing Vice Chancellor has done, governance is a continuum, starting from where she left off and ensuring that there is integration even among all the people who disputed with her,” Senator Nwaogu said.

In her comments, Professor Obi said that she gives all the glory to God and vowed to lead an inclusive administration.

“I am happy and I return all the glory to God.

“I just received my appointment letter from the 12th Council as Vice Chancellor-elect. The process was free and fair, and I promise to lead an inclusive administration, ”said Professor Obi.
