The Akwa Ibom State University, AKSU, has suspended indefinitely a 200 level student of the department of Performing Arts, Faculty of Art, Nkanang Joy Ufot, for allegedly calling the Vice Chancellor of the institution, Prof. Eno Ibanga, a fool in a social media
This was contained in a letter signed by the University Registrar and Secretary to Senate, Mr. John. E. Udo and made available to journalists in Uyo on Monday.
In the letter entitled ‘Indefinite Suspension for gross Misconduct,’ Ufot with the registration number AK17/ART/FPA/024 had on her Facebook page referred the Vice Chancellor of the University, as ‘That foolish VC’
The VC, therefore, directed that the student be suspended indefinitely with immediate effect pending the outcome of investigation into the matter.
It was gathered that at a meeting of principal officers with the Dean of Students Affairs, Chief security officer, Ag. Head, Department of Performing Art, and Students Union President held on Monday, May, 06, 2019, Ufot had admitted to the act.
The letter reads in part, “In line with the University rules and regulations enshrined in the students information handbook the Vice Chancellor has directed that your studentship should be suspended indefinitely with effect from the date of this letter, for this act of gross misconduct which constitutes a breach of matriculation oath.
“This suspension is pending the outcome of the investigation by the students’ disciplinary committee. Also the Dean of your Faculty as well as the Head of your department are hereby informed to ensure strict compliance with this decision.
“The security officer is by a copy of this letter directed not to allow you entry into the University campuses during the period of your suspension unless you are expressly invited by the authorities of the University.”
