Staff of the Federal College of Education Obudu recently demonstrated against the management of the institution led by the Provost, Dr. James Ejue over perceived corruption allegations.

The placards bearing staff went round the institution demanding the sack of Dr. Ejue, the Registrar and the Bursar, Mr. Sixtus Ushie.

The duo of Dr. Ejue and the Bursar, Mr. Sixtus Ushie are being investigated by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) over allegations of corruption with Mr. Ushie currently on suspension.

Meanwhile, the Governing Council of the institution in it’s last meeting held on December 14 – 15, 2017 upheld the report of its adhoc committee that suggested the suspension of the Provost.

Ejue is to proceed on a three months suspension and this will be forwarded to the Minister for Education for ratification CrossRiverWatch gathered.

Unconfirmed information suggests Dr. Ejue and Mr. Ushie are supposed to refund various sums to the tune of N25 million each.

Below are images from the demonstration…
