UNICAL VC Blows Whistle on Ex-Bursar over N200m Fraud

Kuni Tyessi in Abuja

The Vice-Chancellor, University of Calabar (UNICAL), Prof. Zana Akpagu, has called on the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) to arrest and prosecute the former Bursar, Mr. Peter Agi over allegations of fraud to the tune of over N200 million.

 Akpagu, who spoke through a coalition of non-governmental organisation, Transparency Initiative Nigeria, said the former bursar, who is inexperienced and haughty, had continued to dwindle the fortunes of the institution as well as frustrate infrastructural progression.

The Executive Secretary of the group, Yomi David‎, said Agi had used his position as bursar to enrich himself and acquire several posh cars, outlandish mansions and choice property across the country and thus called for sterner sanctions to enable the university recover the funds he looted.
David, who was represented by the Media Director of the group, Mr. Solomon Adodo, stated the VC deserves commendation as an internal whistle blower for refusing to cooperate with, or condone the corrupt antics of the erstwhile bursar. He said by the VC’s action, he has portrayed the true essence of the ‘Change Begins with Me’ campaign of the Muhammadu Buhari-led administration.
