Unical Post UTME : VC disowns fake Facebook account

Unical VC, Prof. Zana Akpagu
The Vice Chancellor of University of Calabar (Unical), Prof Zana Akpagu has disowned a ''fake'' Facebook account bearing his name and pictures.

The VC said the social media account was created by scammers to defraud the public on admission related issues.

Akpagu in a statement on Monday urged the general public to disregard the account on Facebook and other social media platforms even as he warned perpetrators to desist from such acts or face the consequences.

The statement reads: “The attention of Prof. Zana Akapgu, the Vice Chancellor of the University of Calabar, has been drawn to the existence of accounts on Facebook, operated by unscrupulous individuals asking unsuspecting people to call one Prof. Amaru on Post UTME  related issues."

The statement adds that "this is the handiwork of mischief makers whose aim is to mislead and defraud unsuspecting members of the public."

Prof. Akpagu, the statement maintains, "remains absolutely committed to the institution's core values of integrity, fairness and transparency, and would always follow due process in the admission of new students. As a reputable institution which stands tall, as one of the foremost tertiary institutions in the country, we would not in any way compromise standards for financial gains." 

The statement reiterated that "admission would be merit-based to ensure high quality intakes and advised members of the public to disregard the claim by these faceless elements using unverified Facebook accounts to defraud unsuspecting members of the public."

The statement concludes that "Unical only publishes Post UTME admission and other activities on the university website, newspapers, credible online platforms and not on unverified social media platforms.”
