The University of Calabar Management has reiterated its earlier ban on post-exams celebration/reckless driving on campus.
The registrar of the institution, Mr. Gabriel O. Egbe, in a press release dated October 23, 2023, stated that the management has been drawn to another ugly, rowdy and disorderly scene post exams.
The statement reads “The attention of Management has again been drawn to another ugly, rowdy and disorderly scene where students were sighted in their numbers flying strange colours suspected to be secret cult regalia, while others were seen driving recklessly (presumably under the influence of alcohol and drugs) in and around the University premises. These lawless and dangerous acts being perpetuated by these students in the guise of celebrating their graduation does not portray our University in good light as our students are well known for decency, having been thoroughly trained in character and learning. For one, these acts pose grave danger to other students and members of the university community.
“Accordingly, the Vice Chancellor wishes to remind all students that the ban on unlawful gatherings after examinations, flying of colours and reckless driving in and around campus is still in force.
“All motorists are once again advised to always observe a speed limit of 40 km while driving on Campus.
The Chief Security Officer is directed to strictly enforce and to impound any vehicle that goes against this directive.
