Change of Guard in Akwa Ibom State University

The ceremony was witnessed by a cross-section of Senior staff of the University.
On Thursday the 13th of July 2017, there was a major change in the leadership of Akwa Ibom State University (AKSU). It was the handing-over ceremony for the out-going Deputy Vice-Chancellor (DVC) Administration and Head of Obio Akpa campus - the highly respected Prof. Vincent Nyoyoko. 

Dr. Nsima Idiong of the Faculty of Agriculture has been appointed new Head of Obio Akpa campus in the state-owned varsity and is now in charge of the daily administration and the smooth running of that campus. Prof Nyoyoko was the Akwa Ibom State University’s 2nd DVC/Head of Campus and incidentally happens to be the last person to occupy that dual office. This is consequent on the decision of the University Senate/Management to separate the DVC’s office from that of the Head of Campus (HOC) and cause them to operate as 2 distinct offices. Recall that Akwa Ibom State University operates a multi-campus University system.
The Vice-Chancellor addresses the gathering
During the handing-over ceremony which was witnessed by a cross section of staff, the Vice-Chancellor of the University, Prof. Eno Ibanga, expressed profound gratitude to Prof. Nyoyoko for the many years of dedicated service he has rendered to the University community in particular. He expressed strong confidence in the performance ability of Dr. Nsima Idiong, taking into cognisance the various contributions that Dr. Nsima has made to the growth of the University right from the days of the Akwa Ibom State College of Agriculture.

While in Akwa Ibom State University, Dr. Idiong has among other things been the Dean - Faculty of Agriculture and under his astute leadership, all the courses in the Faculty have received full accreditation from National Universities Commission (NUC).

Speaking further, Prof. Eno Ibanga said that Akwa Ibom State University has grown over time and that the time was right to bring to bear in AKSU, the standard culture of conventional Universities in Nigeria. He reiterated his vision of building an Akwa Ibom State University that will be highly reputable and known all over the world.

In a related development, a new Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Administration) has been appointed for Akwa Ibom State University in the person of Prof. Idongesit Isaac. Details of that will be posted soon.
