Suspended UNICAL Dean Must Repay All Money Taken From Students-VC

Remember the story of UNICAL’s Dean of Faculty of Law, Professor Cyril Ndifon, which broke the internet last week?

The Dean was accused by female students of University of Calabar (UNICAL) for various counts which includes s3xtual harassment and extortion of money.

Students took to the university’s premises carrying placards to protest. Later on, the Dean was suspended from work and banned from entry into the school’s Premises.

According to reports reaching RantHq,the Vice Chancellor of the University of Calabar (UNICAL), Professor Florence Obi, has given a directive, which states that the embattled Dean of the Faculty of Law, refund to the very last penny all money he extorted from the aggrieved UNICAL undergraduates.

The VC also went ahead to buttress the fact that Professor Cyril Ndifon is still under investigation

In a press statement, she announced: “‘Today, I am before you with mixed feelings; feelings of sadness, that, we are on the headlines globally over a seemingly ignominious issue and on the other hand slightly glad that we have a glorious opportunity to set things right as it affects our work ethics and cherished values in the University”.

“The Dean and the Sub-Dean were directed to submit all the result scripts, questions papers, marking guides and examination attendance lists for the past two sessions to the Director of Quality Assurance; he Dean to refund all illegal monies extorted from the students under various sub-heads, among other decisions.

“Management after observing that the Dean of the Faculty was at the Centre of all the complaints and aberrations, issued the Dean with a 10-point query to be responded to within 24 hours. This was to give him a good opportunity to effectively refute the allegations or State why Management should not take the allegations of the students seriously. When he responded, his submissions in the eyes of Management were thoroughly weak and not convincing. Management was left with no other option than to set up a panel to conduct investigation. It is obvious that the Dean cannot be in office while the investigation is on,hence going by the Public Service Rules, he has been placed on suspension to allow a free investigation.
