Agi loses bid to reverse sack in Appeal Court

Mr. Peter Agi, Unical former Bursar 
The former Bursar of the University of Calabar, Unical, Mr. Peter Agi's bid to reverse his sack by the institution has suffered a huge set back as the Appeal Court in Calabar has dismissed his suit challenging the judgment of National Industrial Court which upheld his dismissal.

The Calabar Division of the National Industrial Court had ruled in favour of the University's decision to fire the ex-bursar last year.

The court held that Mr. Agi did not exhaust the internal mechanisms of the school for resolution of dispute before rushing to court therefore, violated Section 80 of the University of Calabar Act, 1979.

Agi was dismissed by the University over allegedly operating a secret school fees payment portal, insubordination, disrespect for constituted authority amongst others.

Unical head of Legal Department, Barr Jonas Abuo when contacted declined making any comment on the issue as he was not directed by the University authority to do so.

He said that “I cannot make any comments unless I have been directed by the authorities to do so.”

Efforts to get Agi or his counsel to react to the judgement was unsuccessful at news time.
