The Management of the University of Calabar (UNICAL), has expelled 33 students and retired a Professor for alleged examination malpractices and plagiarism respectively.

The Vice-Chancellor, Professor Zana Akpagu, disclosed this during a briefing in Calabar while stressed that UNICAL was the only institution offering an anti-corruption course introduced in collaboration with the Independent Corrupt Practice and other Allied Matters Commission (ICPC) to inculcate good values in students.

Prof Akpagu said the expulsions and retirement were in tandem with his mission to rid the school of indiscipline and restore its academic glory. He reiterated management’s stance against corruption, saying: “The affected students and staff are shown the way out to restore discipline and integrity.”

The Pro-chancellor, Dr Emmanuel Iwuanyanwu, who is also the chairman of the Governing Council, said the council is in support of the anti-corruption crusade of the VC, noting that it was in line with President Muhammadu Buhari-led administration’s anti-graft policy.

Iwuanyanwu said: “There is corruption everywhere. Our professors and intellectuals should sit down and formulate strategies to curb academic corruption. We must create a platform to stop abuse of students by lecturers. We have to discourage sorting and bribery by academic staff. We don’t want corruption to be mentioned with the name of this University.”

Iwuanyanwu challenged the University staff and students to report corrupt practices wherever they notice any. He said such would help the management to drive its policy of making the school the best in Africa.
