  1. While congratulating the Erudite Professor and Vice Chancellor of the esteemed University of Calabar, Calabar, I wish him more fruitful years ahead. As a representative of South South in TETFund, may he shine like the star that he is. The task before him is enormous but with determination he will make it successfully to the end. Challenges, I hear are his hallmark, and like a Goldfish, he does not have a hiding place. As an enviable Ambassador, he will leave indelible footprints on the sands of time. CONGRATULATIONS ONCE AGAIN PROFESSOR ITIUNBE.
