Prof Florence Obi, the current Vice Chancellor of the University Of Calabar (UNICAL) has called on the Tertiary Education Trust Fund (TETFUND) and Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC) to come to their aid in the construction of a new library for the institution.
She said that the concern and worry of the university were on the state of the library stressing that the library has deteriorated badly.
According to Prof. Obi, the 13th Governing Council of the university was also disturbed about the state of the library, hence members gave their commitment to its rehabilitation.
Obi in a chat with VANGUARD said: ”I want to call on TETFUND, Ministry of Education, NDDC and alumnus of the University of Calabar to come to support the university in rehabilitating the university’s library“.
“For now, that is where our worry and concern is because we do not have a library.
Our library over the years deteriorated and nothing was done to revive it, so we need to revive it, hence we need the support of all relevant agencies to see that our library is upstanding“.
