This event, slated for Monday, March 4th, 2024, at the Unical International Conference Centre, promises to be a remarkable gathering of the University community and the general public.

Under the Distinguished Chairmanship of Barr Miebaka Nabiebu Ph.D, the event will unfold with a theme deeply resonant in today’s economic landscape – “University Workers In A Depressed Economy.” This choice of theme underscores the Registrar’s commitment to addressing pertinent issues facing the university’s workforce within the broader socio-economic context.

Her leadership adds a touch of prestige to the event, emphasizing the university’s dedication to fostering an environment that values both academic and administrative excellence.

Adding further distinction to the event is the Special Guest of Honour, Sen. Dr Stephen Adi Odey, Commissioner of Education, Cross River State.

A noteworthy Guest of Honour for the day is Princess Victoria Otanya Odey, a distinguished Philanthropist, Business Woman, and Politician. Her multifaceted contributions to society align with the university’s commitment to holistic development, making her an apt choice for this role.

The event’s intellectual dimension will be enriched by the presence of the Guest Speaker, Dr. Omojola Awosusi, Former Registrar of Ekiti State University, Ado-Ekiti, who takes on the topic, “University Laws, Organs, Culture and Ceremonies.” He brings a wealth of experience and insights, providing valuable perspectives on navigating the challenges faced by university workers in turbulent economic times.

Complementing the discourse is the Second Guest Speaker, Ide Owodiong Idemoko, a seasoned Security Management Consultant, Social Advocate, and Public Speaker, also scheduled to address the audience on the topic, “Terrorism And The Nigerian State: A Critical Review.” Ide Idemoko’s expertise will shed light on the broader societal implications and the role of security in fostering a conducive environment for academic and administrative functions.

Notably, the event will also recognize and celebrate outstanding staff and retirees with prizes and awards. This gesture aims to acknowledge the dedication and contributions of individuals who have significantly shaped the university’s trajectory.
