The Akwa Ibom state University AKSU has suspended indefinitely one Nkanang Joy Ufot, a 200level student of the department of Performing Arts, Faculty of Arts for calling the school’s Vice-Chancellor, Professor Eno Ibanga ‘foolish VC’.
The student is said to have posted the insult on the VC on her Facebook wall resulting in her indefinite suspension over what the institution termed ‘gross misconduct’.

The letter titled, “Indefinite Suspension for Gross misconduct” said the VC has directed that the student be suspended indefinitely with immediate effect pending the outcome of investigation into the matter.
It noted that at meeting of principal officers with the Dean of Students Affairs, Chief security officer, Ag. Head, department of Performing Art, and Students Union President held on Monday, May 06, 2019, Ufot had admitted to the act.
The letter reads in part, “In line with the University rules and regulations enshrined in the students information handbook, the Vice Chancellor has directed that your studentship should be suspended indefinitely with effect from the date of this letter, for this act of gross misconduct which constitutes a breach of matriculation oath.
“This suspension is pending the outcome of the investigation by the students disciplinary committee. Also, the Dean of your Faculty, as well as the Head of your department, are hereby informed to ensure strict compliance with this decision.
