The Vice-Chancellor, University of Uyo (Uniuyo) Prof. (Mrs) Comfort Ekpo, has said that the college has recorded remarkable achievements in the last 12 years since the introduction of covenant service in the campus.
Prof. Ekpo made the remark recently at the ELF Lecture Theatre in the university during the 12th Anniversary of the Covenant Service Instituted by the former vice-chancellor, Prof. Akpan Ekpo in 2002.
She said “I want to announce that despite the June 12, 13 mayhem and arson which had engulfed the university of uyo, such great strides included the resumption of works on all capital projects, university table water factory, signing of MOU with various corporate bodies for collaboration, National and International awards of excellence by staff and students, and the movement of the university administration to the Main Campus among other feast”.
The Vice chancellor who described the covenant service as a “Life Changing Fellowship” urged the university community to keep faith with God and remain focused and read the path of growth and progress.
She regretted the ugly event of June 12, 2013 and stressed that it could have been worse but for God’s Favour and mercy upon the university.
Earlier, the Registrar Mrs. Edak Umondak explained that April 11 had become a memorable date in the university calendar to commemorate the formal handing over of the university to God in a convent service in the work of cultism and other vices which engulfed the university.
