The Post Graduate School Government (PGSG) President, University of Calabar (UNICAL) Mr. Akpo Pius Undie has described the accusation of five hundred thousand naira (500.000) misappropriation labeled against him as “conspiracy cooked to destroy his reputation.”
Mr. Pius Undie, is accused of misappropriating funds belonging to the students body amounting to about 500, 000 naira.
The allegations were made in letter addressed to the Dean of Students Affairs signed by the Vice President of the body Miss Nyakno Asuquo and Speaker of the Senate, Senator Utsu Emmanuel.
Reacting to the issue, the Dean of student affairs Prof. Enang Udah said, “President, all seven members out of ten of your Exco members could not have conspired against you along side the Parliamentarians if you worked and related well with them.
“After listening to all parties involved, I may have to recommend that this matter be taken up to the ICPC for further investigation”. He suggested.
However, this position was objected by the aggrieved members for fear of bureaucratic bottle neck that could frustrate their effort and ridicule their determination to put an end to such practices.
Senator Akan cited instances of past Senate Presidents such as Williams who misappropriated monies and was simply compelled to refund to the last kobo, suggesting that this should be the norm, as it has the potency of deterring others nursing same intention of running for office merely to mismanage public funds.
