Negligence of duty: UNICAL VC relieves Prof. Ecoma as HoD

The Vice Chancellor of the University of Calabar, (UNICAL), Prof. Florence Banku Obi has relieved the Head of Department (HoD), Fine and Applied Arts, Prof. Victor Ecoma of his appointment.

The move, which has sent shocking waves in the university community, came after Prof. Ecoma failed to present students from his department for the 36th Convocation Ceremony.

Prof Ecoma’s sack as Head of Department  was contained in a release issued by the university’s Registrar, Mr. Gabriel Egbe on Monday.

"Prof. Ecoma’s failure to fulfill his duty and ensure the participation of his students in the important academic event has been deemed a glaring act of negligence and incompetence. 

"As a result, the university administration has found it necessary to terminate his appointment with immediate effect.

"In light of this development, the Vice Chancellor has promptly directed Prof. Ecoma handed over all university properties in his possession to his successor, Prof. Echeta Christian Chemezie, who has been appointed to assume the position," the release stated.
