Abia state University has withdrawn the degree certificate awarded to former Governor and businessman, Orji Uzor Kalu.
The Registrar of the University, Mr. O. Onuoha made this known on Saturday, after the University Senate had convened for an emergency meeting. According to Onuoha, Orji Kalu’s certificate was withdrawn because he did not complete the required number of semesters and he was an Absentee student.
In Onuoha’s words: The decision of Senate was based on the following grounds among others: The violation of the academic regulations of the university on Admission-by-Transfer, which rendered the offer irregular, ab initio and the he non-completion of the mandatory six semesters (i.e. three academic years of study), before he was awarded a degree of the university. He spent only two semesters in all.
