The former Director, Ikom Community Study Centre, Dr. Edwin Bassey, on Thursday, February 22, 2024 bowed out as the director of the centre as he formally handed over the reins of leadership to the centre’s most senior officer, Mr. Ibe Julius Inya, who will pilot the affairs of the centre in acting capacity.

Bassey, in his valedictory remarks at the hand-over ceremony, commended staff of Ikom Community Study Centre for the cooperation they accorded him to perform during his tenure.

He charged them to extend such cooperation to his successor and wished them God's guidance and success in their careers.


In a related development, Edwin Bassey has taken over the leadership of the South-south regional hub of the university, Uyo Study Centre, Akwa Ibom State, as director.

He replaced Prof. Charity Okonkwo, who recently was transferred to Enugu Study Centre, in Enugu State as the director.

Bassey described Okonkwo as a great achiever who has done much especially in the area of zero tolerance to exams malpractice and facility management of the centre.

He said he intends to sustain and build on his predecessor's lofty achievements.

"I need to think creatively in order to make impact and build on what Prof. Okonkwo has achieved at this centre," Bassey said.
