CRUTECH VC To Ayade: Please Pay Workers Promptly

Acting Vice Chancellor of the Cross River University of Technology, Calabar, Prof Mrs Akon Joshua has appealed to the governor and visitor to the university, Prof Ben Ayade to consider prompt payment of salaries for workers in the institution, the same way civil servants are being paid.

The acting VC said this just as she expressed appreciation to the governor for the opportunity to serve in that capacity. She said delayed salary payment was an issue of concern to the workers.

She made this call at the official handing over by her predecessor, Prof Anthony  Owan Enoh, just as she lauded the efforts of the former VC and  pledged selfless service throughout her stay in office.

She maintained that  the services rendered to the institution by the former vice chancellor were remarkable and noted that  not everyone may be  pleased with his tenure.

“I want to thank the outgoing VC for his services rendered to the institution. Having studied psychology, I wish to tell you that not everyone is pleased with your tenure owing to the fact that individual differences are billed double of people in the world. As I thank the CRUTECH community for accepting me, I also call for your support for the period of three months I shall hold on until we elect our substantive VC”

Responding at the occasion, the outgoing vice chancellor said he remembered with nostalgia, the quality of men and women who made up the university, individuals who in their patriotism and sacrifice had always resolved to fulfil the dreams of their founding fathers.

He also   encouraged his successor  to be vibrant and discharge her duties effectively for the period she would be in the saddle of leadership. He expressed appreciation to union members and students of the institution for their support while he held sway as the university's helmsman.

“As the union invest in the quality of its membership, so has been the conduct of all co-union in the university namely ASUU, SSANU and others. From the bottom of my heart, I thank them. In a special way still, I thank my students who throughout my tenure found in me a father and a leader”

 Owan Enoh said among his many achievements, dear to his heart were his implementation of earned academic allowance in CRUTECH, infrastructural developments such as the ultra modern auditorium which serves as an event centre for extracurricular activities, establishment of new faculties and programmes amongst others as he called for these programmes to be developed and sustained.

 He celebrated leaving CRUTECH at the 44th position on the latest NUC ranking which  may push the university to  moving us to the 25th position after the university's outstanding performance in the last accreditation exercise.

On his part, the registrar, Mr Gabriel Beshel commended the outgoing vice chancellor for his outstanding efforts during his five year stint in the university.
