UNICAL VC, Florence Obi Asks Final Year Students To Return To 200 Level by Olayiide: 7:56pm On Apr 13
Anger, Frustration As University Of Calabar's VC Asks Final-Year Students To Return To 200-Level

Some students of the University of Calabar, Cross River State have called out the institution's new Vice-Chancellor, Florence Obi, for asking final-year students in some selected departments to go back to 200-level due to non-accreditation of their courses by the National Universities Commission.

The students, who spoke on condition of anonymity, told SaharaReporters that the courses have gulped millions of naira taken from their families.

They, therefore, described the VC's decision as inhumane and inconsiderate.

The students explained that courses affected by the accreditation issue include Fine and Applied Arts, Mass Communication, and Music.

According to them, the affected courses were newly introduced during the administration of the immediate past Vice-Chancellor of the school, Zana Akpagu.

They alleged that the new Vice-Chancellor of the institution had personal scores to settle with the former Vice-Chancellor and that the animosity was taking a toll on students' lives.

One of the respondents said, “I have an issue in my school and I don't know where it is heading to. I am a final-year student in the Fine and Applied Arts department at the University of Calabar but the Vice-Chancellor is telling us to go back to Year two so that NUC will recognise us. This is after paying school fees for four years and wasting money for materials which have so far, amounted to millions of naira. The new VC is now telling us we have to comply with this directive else we will not have a result.”

Another student described the VC's directive as unfair, saying the issue should be reconsidered for the sake of the students.

He said, “There's an issue going on that is really unfair. We are students of the University of Calabar. We have been in the school from 100 level to final year. For some of us in selected departments such as Fine & Applied Arts, Mass Communication and the rest, the VC is are telling us that we have to go back to 200 level and we are already in the final year.

“We have spent money; Fine and Applied Arts gulps a lot of money, we are in final year and now they are telling us to go back to 200 level and it is just an accreditation issued by the NUC and now the new VC does not want to consider people. Something has to be done.”

When asked if the VC promised a tuition waiver for the students, he replied that school fees were the least of his worries but rather the time and efforts wasted over the years.

He continued, “Paying school fees is not an issue, we are not worried about that. Do you know, sometimes, in a day we spend like N5, 000 to N6, 000 in buying chemicals and the rest and we did this for four years. We are planning on taking legal steps against them.

“Our set is the first set of Fine & Applied Arts in UNICAL alongside Mass Communication and Music, they were not taking the course before now, they just registered it.

“The former VC, we believe has an issue with the new VC and this new VC cannot go and settle the issues they have so we can graduate in peace, they are making it to affect us. The former VC introduced the courses. We cannot suffer because of someone else's personal problems.”

My brain is fatigued from thinking how Nigeria is in a downward spiral with things deteriorating at a rapid rate.

When I read these now incessant bad news, I just shrug it off and await the next one to shrug off.

This can only happen in Nigeria.

In my own opinion I think the best idea is that the final year students should be distributed across other universities in Nigeria that has fine and Applied art accreditation. Just that their certificate might bear the new institutions name and they might have to go back a year compared to two years.

I could remember years back at Uni we have some final year engineering students from Uniabuja that has this accreditation problem too. Their school distributed them across other Universities in Nigeria. Just that they have to go back a year
