Who will win the coveted prize, a Hyundai i10 was the question on the lips of students of the University of Calabar as the Cliqfest campus train berthed in their school. For two days the University community was agog as Cliqfest provided a beautiful blend of education & entertainment (edutainment) sponsored by Nigeria’s innovative and youth centric company, Etisalat.

The fun-filled campus tour had a life inspiring seminar anchored by motivational speaker, Niyi Adesanya who dished out success tips for life after school. Students were also treated to a football match, a music rap contest, dancing competition and a raffle draw where lots of exciting gifts such as phones and laptops were won.

The climax of the event was the emergence of Violet Ukama, a 400 Level student of Soil Science as winner of the star prize, a Hyundai i10 car. Speaking after receiving her car key, an overwhelmed Ukama thanked Etisalat for the “unbelievable gift.” Her words: “I just finished my exams yesterday and here I am winning a car today. It is unbelievable! I am so excited I really don’t know what to say. A very big thank you to Etisalat for giving me this opportunity.”
There was also a concert headlined by the winners of season 4 and 5 of Etisalat-Sponsored Nigerian Idol, Evelle and K-Peace as well as the respective runners up of both seasons, Idowu Odugbemi known as Eye-D and Dolu.
The Dean, Student Affairs, Prof.  Eyong Ubana was full of praises for Etisalat, “I am happy that a student has won this car, we will encourage our students to subscribe more to the Etisalat brand and we are hopeful that they will come again next year with more than one car to present to two of my students.
