The Graduate School of the University of Calabar has said that a suspended lecturer, Mr. Joseph Odok failed to meet the requirements for the award of a PhD.

As part of the process of preparing students for convocation, the graduate school is compiling records of students who have met the requirements for the March 2018, convocation of the University.

The Graduate School in a memo signed by the Ag. Dean, Professor Arikpo Arikpo, to the Vice Chancellor, Professor Zana Akpagu, said the sources of obtaining such records include Head of Departments and the Bursary and Zellence Nigeria Limited.

According to the memo which was obtained by CrossRiverWatch, Odok “failed to meet the prescribed requirement both on adequate school fees payment and prescribed academic records as contained in the relevant sections of the 2016 hand book for the Graduate School operation.

“Consequently, his status as a Graduate School student is recommended to be suspended.”

The letter which was copied to the DVC, Academic was further minuted to the Dean Graduate School, on January 28, 2018 with a charge to “Pls handle and report to me on actions taken.”

The Dean in his comments on the memo said, “Recommendation approved. Graduate School studentship suspended. Pls convey to all concerned.”

Details of the issues are contained in the attached bromide copy of the memo.

Joseph Odok was first suspended from his job in UNICAL for insubordination and was later recalled but allegedly refused to resume work pleading his absence on ill health and a medical report.

He was again suspended for a second time after launching a barage of allegations against the VC of the University on social media.
