Unical VC Makes U-turn, Refunds CBT, EDC Levies Among Others To Students

The Vice-Chancellor of the University of Calabar, Professor Florence Obi has reversed the payment of both General Studies and Communication Skills (GSS) and Computer Based Test (CBT) registration charges and as such assured that those involved will get refunds.

The Vice-Chancellor said this during an interactive session with leaders of the Student Union Government (SUG) while responding to issues making rounds on media about incessant increment on levies that required a swift and immediate response from the management of the institution. The meeting was a follow up on the one held earlier on Wednesday, 7th July 2021

Prof. Obi said that Students’ Union leaders must have a constructive engagement with their colleagues and management of their institutions to promote an enabling atmosphere for learning.

On increment of the hostel accommodation from the sum of N16,500 to N21,000, the Vice-Chancellor alluded to the last meeting with the leaders where it was agreed by both parties to reflect current economic realities for those who want to genuinely reside in the hostels.

Prof. Obi added that for the Entrepreneurial Development Centre (EDC) levy paid by students who were not in the practical year class, the affected students have started receiving refunds and that there is proof of payment to show that over 147 students have received their monies. She, therefore, urged other affected students to apply as soon as possible to get their money back.

The management of the institution will also address other issues in the next meeting with the student leaders, to promote peace, stability on campus and also engender oneness in the pursuit of giving the University of Calabar its pride of place among universities in the country.

Obi has also charged students to feel free to speak up when issues arise through the right channels to avoid unwholesome practices.
