The Vice Chancellor, Cross River University of Technology, Prof. Augustine Oko Angba, has rounded off his 2nd Anniversary Celebration as Vice Chancellor of the institution.
The ceremony which kick-started with the November 4, 2022 edition of the institution's Prayer summit held at the New Cafeteria, Calabar Campus, was capped on Sunday, November 6, 2022, with a thanks-giving service held at the Redeem Christian Church of God, Kings Court Province 5, Calabar-Calabar Roundabout, Ikot Ishie, Calabar.
During the colourful outings, the Vice Chancellor made bare the plethora of his achievements which included, among others; staff and students' welfare, the provision of viable security and infrastructural development.
Prof. Angba who currently floats a pivotal scholarship scheme to serve as a reward system for hard work, maintained that the scheme was targeted at students with the highest CGPA and well-behaved students across the four University campuses.
The Chief Executive revealed that CRUTECH has demonstrated excellence in the realm of research and had won National and International laurels in this regard.
He passionately sued for continued cooperation from staff and students in order to grow the University.
The CRUTECH boss whose speech at the Church thanks-giving service was significantly coated with striking family and personal testimonials, said though his developmental vision for CRUTECH was temporarily disrupted by the Covid-19 lockdown and the just-suspended protracted National strike by University unions, his administration has momentarily placed an array of achievements on CRUTECH record, within the space of the first two years of his tenure.
He felt ultimately thankful for God’s faithfulness in his life.
The events were graced by CRUTECH Management, the crème de la crème of the University community and close associates of the Vice Chancellor.
Highpoint of the ceremony was; offering of thanks giving prayers, presentation of ‘’FOTOS’’ Awards and cultural dance performance by the University Staff School.
A Team from MTN, Nigeria has paid a courtesy visit on the Vice Chancellor of Cross River University of Technology, Professor Augustine Oko Angba, in his office.
Based on previous interactions and mutually beneficial engagements between the Vice Chancellor's office and the Service provider, MTN Nigeria has expressed willingness to partner with Crutech.
Speaking in the Vice Chancellor's Office on Thursday November 10, the Team Leader, Chika Menegbo, who is the MTN Regional Sales Manager, South-South Region, intimated the Vice Chancellor that the company was interested in cooperating with the University in the provision of high speed internet services for all the campuses; the provision of MTN Closed User Group (CUG) services, for the thousands of CRUTECH students to communicate cheaply and easily among themselves; as well as the execution of Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) projects in CRUTECH.
The MTN Team promised to work in sync with the University Management to actualise the dream of internet connectivity in all the four campuses.
Responding, the Vice Chancellor, thanked the Team for the visit and expressed hope over the gains expected from this synergy between MTN Nigeria and Crutech.
