by Sahara Reporters Jun 21, 2021 A final-year student of the Akwa Ibom State University, Ekpo Iniobong Isang, has taken the university to court over his unfair suspension and expulsion for criticising Governor Emmanuel Udom.SaharaReporters learnt that the 500-level student of the Department of Agricultural Engineering, through his lawyers, has sent a pre-action notice to the Vice-Chancellor, dated June 18.’ Governor Emmanuel, who was represented at the event by the honourable commissioner for Trade and Investment, Otuekong Ukpong Akpabio said through the Akwa Ibom State Youths Entrepreneurial Development Programme, the state government has demonstrated its readiness to properly equip her citizens with entrepreneurial skills so as to enable them play in the big leagues of business and enterprise.Isang with Matriculation Number, AK15/ENG/AEE/013, was expelled on April 9, 2021, in a letter signed by John Udo, the Registrar and the Secretary to the Senate, titled,"Expulsion for Gross Misconduct.The Ambassador also presented a UN SDGs Champion Laurel to the Governor for aligning with the organisation’s Sustainable Development Goals in his investment drive." "At its 69th meeting held on Wednesday, March 31, the Senate of the university deliberated on the report from the Students Disciplinary Committee.In his remarks, the senior special assistant to the governor on Marketing and Brand Management, Mr Ime Uwah, lauded governor Emmanuel for his passion for youths’ development, and entrepreneurial education, epitomised in the conceptualisation and execution of the Akwa Ibom State Youths Entrepreneurial Development Programme.You will recall that you had appeared before the said committee on a case of publication of derogatory and defamatory article on Facebook platform about the Executive Governor of Akwa Ibom State and Visitor to the university.Apart from Mr Akpan who has confessed to the rape and killing of Miss Umoren, another suspect in the case is his father.

"This act constitutes a breach of the Matriculation Oath and violation of the university rules and regulations enshrined in the student information handbook.His words, “anyway, anyhow you can help us, we are honestly looking up to it.You are hereby expelled from the university for this act of gross misconduct which constitutes a breach of the Matriculation Oath," the Registrar said in the letter.In the pre-action letter by his lawyer, Inibehe Effiong, Isang is asking for"the immediate and unconditional reinstatement of our client" among other demands.The lawyer said,"At no time did the Akwa Ibom University invite or summon our client to appear before the university's Students Disciplinary Committee prior to his indefinite suspension.He added that such would boost tourism as well as the economy in the state.Our client was not shown, confronted or availed with the purported abusive post.If a suspect in a criminal investigation is taken into custody by the SSS, the SSS would eventually have to return them to the police, the lawyer said.

"It is apparent that the university acted in contravention of Section 36 of the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria 1999 as amended and Article 7 of the African Charter on Human and People's Rights."Despite repeated entreaties by our client to be given a fair hearing, the university failed or refused to address his grievances and unfair treatment..Our client was not given a reasonable and air opportunity to defend himself before he was expelled."Consequently.We hereby demand the following; one, immediate and unconditional reinstatement of our client, two; restoration of all studentship rights accruable to all students of the university.“None of the agencies can handle it.

"Three, a special opportunity and waiver for our client to write all the the tests and examinations which he registered and paid for but was prevented from writing."Four, the payment of the sum of N20 million to our client representing damages for the gross breach of our client's fundamental human rights and the resultant depression he has suffered."Please take note that we have the firm instruction of our client to commence legal proceedings against the university if the above demands are not met within seven days of the receipt of this letter.".
