UNICAL Take New Step On SECURITY By Collaborating With A Special Security Agency In Cross River State
The Vice-Chancellor of the University of Calabar, PROF. FLORENCE OBI has sued for continuous collaboration with the Nigerian Airforce to curb the security challenges facing the institution.
This was made known when the Vice-Chancellor led other principal officers to pay a courtesy call on the Commander, 305 special Mobility Group, Air Commodore Adebayo Bamidele in his office.
The Vice-Chancellor said as an institution of over Fourty thousand Students there was a need for a huge security presence adding that anything that affects the population negatively will impact the entire University Community and Cross River State at large.
Aside from the tradition of visiting new Service Commanders to forge a close working relationship, She said the visit was occasioned by the spate of security challenges in the nation which has engendered an unhealthy impact on the university, resulting in loss of institutional properties hence the need for synergy.
The Commander of the 305 Special Mobility Group, Air Commodore Adebayo Bamidele in his response stated that the University of Calabar is one of the best universities in the country and that his command will work assiduously to sustain the existing partnership with the institution.
The Commander said that his command supports the need for an increased security presence in the university and will assist the institution to tackle its security challenges to ensure that the campus is safe and calm.
