Court Affirms Orji Kalu's University Certificate Withdrawal Due To Alleged Fraud

On Tuesday, a court of appeal in Owerri, Imo State, affirmed Abia State University’s decision to revoke Senator Orji Uzo Kalu’s bachelor’s degree certificate.

Justice Oludotun Adefope-Okojie, the sitting judge, overturned a high court decision in Isikwuato, Abia State, that had reinstated the former governor’s bachelor’s degree certificate.

Senator Kalu’s degree was revoked by the University in 2018 due to suspicions of fraud and violations of admissions regulations relating to his graduation.

Following this, the former governor went to a state high court in Isikwuato, Abia State, to contest the claims and the university’s subsequent removal of his degree.

The appellate court’s judgment on Tuesday, however, was based on the fact that the state high court in Isikwuato lacked jurisdiction in the case.
