Nyaudoh Ndaeyo emerges as the new Vice-Chancellor of the UNIUYO
The Governing Council of the University of Uyo had, at its special meeting on Monday, approved the appointment of Professor Nyaudoh Ukpabio Ndaeyo as the 8th substantive Vice Chancellor of the University (UNIUYO).
Under Nigerian law, a vice-chancellor of a federal university is entitled to a five-year non-renewable term.
The Federal government of Nigeria converted what used to be the University of Cross River State (UNICROSS) to a federal university on October 1, 1991, and renamed it the University of Uyo [UNIUYO] (after the capital of oil-rich Akwa Ibom State, where it is located).
The university, according to Wikipedia, inherited students, staff, academic programmes and the entire facilities of the erstwhile University of Cross River State established by the Cross River State government in 1983.
Academic activities commenced during the 1991/92 academic session, with UNIUYO now having 12 faculties, a postgraduate school and a school of continuing education. It also now has a teaching hospital located a few kilometers away from its main campus.
Since its establishment, the university has had five vice-chancellors. They are Professors Fola Lasisi, Akpan Hogan Ekpo, Akaneren Essien, and Comfort Memfin Ekpo, who handed over to the incumbent, Enefiok Essien.
