UNICAL Students Protest Poor Welfare

University of Calabar, UNICAL students staged a protest against neglect of their welfare by the authorities of the university.


Major roads in Calabar, the Cross River State capital in Nigeria’s South-south region were blocked earlier on Monday by undergraduates of the university.

The protest, which began at about 5.30 a.m., created panic as workers and traders got stranded at roads linking the university, including Etta Agbor, IBB Way and Mary Slessor Road.

The placards read: “VC, give us water and light, students cannot study without light and water, electricity and water is our right,’’ among others.

The students appealed to the Federal Government to intervene and ensure better living and study conditions in the institution.
