New UNIUYO VC pledges to follow predecessor's footsteps

The new Vice-Chancellor of the University of Uyo (UNIUYO), Prof Nyaudoh Ndaeyo has said he would follow in the footsteps of his predecessor, Prof Enefiok Essien, who stepped down December 1, 2020.

It can be recalled that in the early days of October, the Governing Council of the federal university approved the appointment of Nyaudoh Ukpabio Ndaeyo as the 8th substantive Vice-Chancellor of UNIUYO.

On Tuesday, Prof Ndaeyo, while speaking at a reception organised by the Faculty of Law in honour of Prof Essien, said his administration would ensure the completion of the Faculty building initiated by the immediate past Vice-Chancellor.

The new VC said his plan of action would be anchored on the existing plan with rooms for modifications.

He described the Faculty of Law as his second home, saying he was proud of his predecessor, whose administration he noted, had raised the standard of the University of Uyo.

It was a homecoming for Prof Essien, a Senior Advocate of Nigeria, who had served the Faculty of Law as Dean for 14 years before his elevation to the top job.

Also speaking, the incumbent Dean, Prof Aniedi Ikpang, paid tribute to Prof Essien and acknowledged his giant strides in academic and infrastructure development.

Prof Ikpang noted that it was during the tenure of Prof Essien as VC that the Faculty of Law represented Nigeria in both national and international Law competitions, coming back home with laurels.

He also saluted the outgone Vice-Chancellor for the promotion of staff, saying the Faculty of Law was happy to welcome back Prof Essien after a successful outing.

The highlight of the event was the presentation of a gift to Prof Essien by Law students led by the LAWSAN President, Comrade Godwin Abraham.
