Unical VC Visits Student Involved In Auto Crash, Offers Financial Assistance


The Vice Chancellor of the University of Calabar, Prof. Florence Banku Obi, has visited a year-one student of the institution, Likita Desmond, who was involved in an auto crash along Ikom-Calabar highway on January 8, 2023.

Desmond left Makurdi to Calabar for school resumption before the unfortunate incident occurred.

The VC, who visited the student at the University of Calabar Teaching Hospital, offered financial assistance to him for his medication.

Prof. Obi, thereafter, directed the Director of UNICAL Medical Centre to liaise with the management of UCTH for his treatment.

While wishing Desmond a quick recovery, the VC urged students of the institution to take advantage of the T-Ship programme for their medical needs.

She stressed that the university under her administration places premium on the health of students, hence the need for them to visit the institution’s medical center for their medication and other health issues.

Desmond’s mother, who responded on behalf of her son, thanked the VC for the show of motherly love for his son and for coming to the hospital to visit them.
