Alleged fraud: Withdrawal of Uzor-Kalu’s University certificate upheld

The withdrawal of the Bachelors’ degree certificate of the former Governor of Abia State, Senator Orji Uzor-Kalu by the Abia State University has been upheld.

It was upheld by the Owerri Division of the Court of Appeal presided over by Justice Oludotun Adefope-Okojie, on Tuesday, who also nullified the judgement of a High Court sitting in Isikwuato, Abia State.

It would be recalled that the lower court had restored the Bachelors’ degree certificate of the former governor.

Specifically in 2018, the Abia State University withdrew Senator Kalu’s certificate over allegations of fraud and breach of admission regulations concerning his graduation.

However, the former governor approached the State High Court challenging the allegations and the subsequent withdrawal of his degree by the University.

The Appellate Court decided on the reason that the State High Court lacked jurisdiction over the matter.
