As part of measures to contain the spread of the Corona Virus (COVID-19) in Nigeria, the Federal Government has granted approval for all schools in the country to shut down for one month.
Accordingly, the Vice Chancellor has directed staff and students of the University of Calabar to proceed on break for a period of one month beginning from Monday, March 23, 2020 and to resume from Friday, April 24, 2020.
Staff on essential duties are however directed to continue to discharge their official duties as scheduled. The Chief Security Officer will ensure adequate security coverage on Campus throughout the period.
On behalf of the Vice Chancellor, I wish members of the University community safety while praying for a quick solution to this global health challenge.
