UNICAL Post Graduate President and entire Exco Suspended for Alleged Embezzlement of N1.7m


Alas! The sledge hammer of the  Nwuyi Okori Sam-Uket  led Senate of UNICAL Post-Graduate Students Government (PGSG) has fallen on The Comrade Bassey Williams-led Executive Council of the Post-Graduate Students Government (PGSG) of the University of Calabar, Calabar (UNICAL), Thursday, when the senate slammed an indefinite suspension on the entire Executive council.
TDN can confidently report.

Sitting at the PGSG Common Lounge, Ali Monguno Republic, University of Calabar in the course of its plenary, the 15-member Senate of PGSG UNICAL unanimoursly agreed to suspend the entire executive, while the welfare committee of the Union was saddled with the responsibility piloting the affairs of the executive arm of the union pending when the investigative committee set up by the Senate President comes out with their report.

This suspension was to determine the alleged misappropriation of N1.2 million and 'disappearance' of N500,000 from the 6000873861(?) Heritage Bank account of PGSG, UNICAL by Comr Williams EXCO.

Recall that TDN had reported that about the N1.7 million was misappropriated by Comr.Bassey Williams’ led executive who was sworn into office on the second of August 2017, barley one month ago.

A 3-man Senate Adhoc Committee comprising Okii James(Chair), Mark Abuo, Akan Ime was constituted to determine the alleged misappropriation and embezzlement of the sum of N1.7 million. 

However,  what TDN do not seem to understand is why the entire executive council members were suspended, because the financial scandal ropes round the President and his financial executive members. i.e the Financial Secretary and the Treasurer.

The other executive members also collected their take off grant from the president just as the senate President and his senators did, so why suspend them for collecting the same money you collected?
Or are there other reasons the senate president has for suspending the entire executive council members? As someone rightly asked is the Senate President interested in the running of the executive arm of the union also?

What is worth doing is worth doing well!!!
