NNAMDI AZIKIWE UNIVERSITY, AWKA
GOVERNING COUNCIL OF NNAMDI AZIKIWE UNIVERSITY INTERDICTS DR. PETER EKEMEZIE
The Governing Council, at its 117th General Meeting held on Wednesday, 26th June, 2019, considered the Report of Appeals and Petitions Committee on the Petitions against his person titled “Fraudulent Claim of Patent by Dr. Peter Ekemezie and other Irregularities in his Current Appraisal”. Council noted that the matter which has lingered for more than five (5) years was a criminal case, pending before the Court of Law. It, therefore, resolved to suspend deliberations on it.
Guided by the provisions of section 13.1.5 of Nnamdi Azikiwe University Senior Staff Conditions of Service, the Governing Council decided to interdict Dr. Peter Ekemezie from his duties in the University with effect from Wednesday, 26th June, 2019.
Council, thereafter, directed as follows:
i. He shall be entitled to one-half of his salary;
ii. He is required-to handover all the University
property in his possession to his Head of Department; and
iii. He is forbidden from carrying out his duties or visiting the University except with the express permission of the Vice-Chancellor.
