The Vice-Chancellor of University of Calabar, Professor Zana Akpagu has disclosed that the University of Calabar is to offer automatic employment to the 12 first class graduates who did their convocation last Saturday so as to encourage hard work and inspire other students.

The VC also informed that two lecturers of the University have been recommended for immediate sack for plagiarism.

Akpagu was speaking at a pre-Convocation news conference where he said the dismissal was in line with the school’s zero tolerance for indiscipline, forgery and examination malpractice.

According to Akpagu, his administration will not tolerate any form of indiscipline from both the academic staff, non-academic staff and students of the institution.

“We want to make a difference so, we are not ready to tolerate indiscipline, be it forgery, plagiarism, exam malpractice, stealing, rape and other vices.

“This week the Disciplinary Committee of our Governing Council concluded cases of two lecturers, accused of plagiarism. They were given a fair hearing and found guilty of plagiarism and one of them is a professor and the other a senior lecturer and the council approved that they be retired immediately.”
