A student of Akwa Ibom State University (AKSU), Joy Nkanang has been suspended indefinitely from the institution for allegedly calling the university Vice Chancellor ‘foolish’ on Facebook.
Nkanang who was in her 2nd year in the Department of Performing Arts was susoended from the university on the 9th of May for being rude to the VC.
Nkanang, from Akwa Ibom state, on May 5 made the following post on Facebook: “AKSU what is happening? A dry cleaners shop was robbed last night along college road….”
“No… we don’t want to spoil the schools image…foolish VC,” she wrote on her Facebook page.
The institution attention was drawn to her “foolish VC” comment which the authority, in the suspension letter, described as “gross misconduct” and a “breach of matriculation oath”.
According to report, the suspended student’s post was about the increase in cult activities and insecurity around the university campus.
The suspension letter, signed by the school registrar, John Udo, said Ms Nkanang admitted before a meeting with university officials that she did call the VC foolish.
