Dr. Rose Ugbe has been appointed as the Acting Dean of the Faculty of Law at the University of Calabar (UNICAL), according to a statement by the university’s Registrar, Mr Gabriel Egbe.
This appointment comes after the suspension of former Dean, Prof. Cyril Ndifon, due to allegations of highhandedness, including improper behavior towards female students.
A seven-man panel has been established to investigate these allegations. Dr. Ugbe’s appointment is effective from August 22nd and will continue until a permanent Dean is elected.
She will be responsible for overseeing the faculty’s academic programs and promoting a positive atmosphere for students and staff.
