Unical Director of Information Joseph Egidi in Collaboration With Hunters Foundation to present “a one day campaign against social vices and youth restiveness”.
Social vices are deviant and immoral behaviours such as rape, drug addiction, evil, murder, examination malpractice, thuggery, cultism, kidnapping, admission racketeering and many other moral decadence rising amongst us.
Restiveness on the other hand, is a condition where one is unable to stay still, and unwilling to be controlled; most especially because one feels bored or unsatisfied with the state of affairs. Youth restiveness is therefore a condition in which youths are seemingly uncontrollable because the state of affairs in a nation or society is unsatisfactory.
Social vices and youth restiveness are fast becoming national and global trends. They cut across: ethnic nationalities, races and even religious cleavages. Some of them include
but not limited to examination malpractice, indecent dressing and prostitution, political
thuggery, cultism, drug addiction, targeted assassinations, armed robbery, pipe-line
vandalism, vandalism of electricity installations and cyber crimes.
These vices are at variance to social norms and values which include beliefs, attitudes, honesty, hard work, customs and traditions, ideals, skills and taboos which a society cherishes and passes on from one generation to another via formal and informal education.
The University of Calabar under the ever agile leadership of Prof Florence Banku Obi; the first female Vice-Chancellor of the institution is taking an intolerable look at these deviant behaviours as necessary apparatuses have been put in place to fish out perpetrators of such behaviours, if any, within the university community and bring them to book.
On the other hand, the distinguished Dean of students, Dr. Tony Enyang; the Ag. Chief Security Officer, SP. Usani Etim Okon(rtd) and the Students’ Union Government(SUG) representatives under the result oriented President, Comr. Ugah James Ugah have been workaholic and assiduous to functions.
As students representatives, we’ve heard most of these vices mentioned above are perpetuated by unscrupulous elements within the university. Therefore, without any equivocation, we’ve decided to launch this campaign to enlighten Nigerian students(Malabites & Malabresses).
The campaign is scheduled as follows:
Date: Thurs 15th April, 2021
Meeting Point: Main Gate
Time: 10:00 Am
