The University of Calabar has bagged an Award of Bronze, coming 3rd in the nation and 1st in the South South geopolitical zone, following the just concluded Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB) Equal Opportunity Group’s (JEOG) National Conference held in Abuja.
The event which took place on Monday 25th and Tuesday 26th September 2023, at the Abuja Intercontinental Hotel, had the University of Ilorin and Nnamdi Azikiwe’s University taking first and second positions respectively in the nation’s Universities with high equal opportunities to higher education.
The conference which has the theme: “Towards Increasing Equal Opportunity of Access to Higher Education in Nigeria”, was aimed at boosting the enrollment opportunities of persons with disabilities in the Nigerian tertiary education system.
It is instructive to note that the administration of Prof. Florence Banku Obi has over time among others, given special recognition to persons with disabilities in the University of Calabar. This, in recent times, has earned her an outstanding award of patronship from the group.
