UNICAL re-suspend Lecturer Joseph Odok

Information reaching CALABAR REPORTERS News desk states that, a lecturer at the University of Calabar, UNICAL has undergone another resuspension, prior to a written letter from the varsity.

Barely few months after his suspension over an alleged incitement of the public against his employer was lifted, Barr. Joseph Odok, a Lecturer in the department of Philosophy, University of Calabar (UNICAL) has found himself in fresh trouble as the university has slammed him with another suspension.

In a letter signed by the University’s Registrar, Moses Abang and dated January 19, 2018, Odok was suspended over his posts on social media where he allegedly made some “wild allegations” against the Vice Chancellor.

It will be recalled that Odok has made series of allegations against the Vice Chancellor, VC, Prof. Zana Akpagu including describing him as an “arrogant and greedy” administrator. In one of his posts, he alleged that the University lost accreditation in Law but the VC deceived prospective candidates to apply and he is now “running helte-skelter to JAMB to bribe them”.

He also accused the VC of sacking people who criticise him while recruiting people without following due process amongst others.

The University has however, come out to deny all the allegations while advising the public to disregard the information being peddled by Odok against the leadership of the institution.

According to Odok’s suspension letter, the University regretted that it is “quite disheartening, unthinkable and unbelievable” for an officer of Odok’s ranking to make such “wild, unsubstantiated and sweeping allegations” capable of inciting the public against the institution and its leadership.

The letter however added that Odok will be invited by the Senior Staff Disciplinary Committee to defend his “spurious” allegations against the Vice Chancellor and the University.

CALABAR REPORTERS is yet to reach Odok over the new incitement from the University.
