Authorities at the University of Calabar have wielded the big stick with immediate removal of professor Cyril Ndifon as the Dean of law faculty.
Vice-Chancellor of the University of Calabar, Florence Obi, has approved the appointment of Rose Ugbe as his replacement
A statement by UNICAL registrar, Gabriel Egbe, said Ms Ugbe replaced Cyril Ndifon following his suspension on August 17 over sexual harassment allegations and high-handedness.
Meanwhile, a seven-man panel has been constituted to look into the allegations.
Ms Ugbe’s appointment took effect on Tuesday and would run until a substantive dean is elected for the faculty.
Ms Ugbe would take up the responsibilities and duties associated with the office and oversee the faculty’s academic programmes.
She would also foster a healthy relationship among staff and students, and create a positive environment for teaching and learning in the faculty.
Other functions include supporting faculty members in their research activities and collaborating with the University administration to implement and actualise the institution’s vision.
