On Orji Kalu’s Certificate Withdrawal By Abia State University


Its no longer news that the Abia State University has withdrawn the degree certificate it awarded to a former governor of the state, Uzor Orji Kalu.

Premium Times reports that the university in a statement by its Registrar, O. E. Onuoha, on Saturday said the decision was taken after an emergency meeting of the university senate which considered the recommendations of a panel which investigated the allegations levelled against Kalu.

allegations of breach of the extant academic regulations of Abia State University, in the admission process of the admission and graduation of Kalu Orji Uzor in the discipline of Government and Public Administration, of matriculation number 00/42226. He was a visitor to the University at the time he enrolled as a student into the university

In actual fact the University has already made mockery of herself, to have awarded the degree to the governor and withdraw it after years of findings (If Orji is still the governor of Abia State, most likely he would have bagged the highest acedemic award of the university)

It is not a new practice for universities to confer awards on political office holders, not all of them deserve it but because of His/Her gesture to such institution, they bag such awards

Orji has responded that his lawyer would ensure that the university’s governing council reverse her decision.

Lets see how this goes.
