According to a statement by the Registrar, Mr Onuoha...He stated..

“On the strength of the findings and recommendations of an investigative panel into allegations of breach of the extant Academic Regulations of Abia State University, in the admission process of the admission and graduation of Kalu, Orji Uzor in the discipline of Government and Public Administration, of matriculation number 00/42226, the Senate of Abia State University at its resumed 69th Extra-Ordinary meeting of Friday 1st March 2013 and by a vote of eighty-eight (88) against three (3) dissenting voices only, approved  the cancellation and withdrawal of the degree result and certificate awarded to him.

“The decision of Senate was based on the following grounds among others:
-The violation of the Academic Regulations of the university on Admission-by-Transfer, which rendered the offer irregular, ab initio.
-The non-completion of the mandatory six (6) semesters (i.e. three academic years of study), before he was awarded a degree of the university. He spent only two semesters in all.

“The university Senate maintained that its action, aforesaid, derived from the exercise of its onerous statutory responsibility to guard and maintain , at all times, the Academic Regulations of the University, its hard-earned reputation and the credibility of the certificates it awards.”

Mr Kalu dropped out of University of Maiduguri but re-enrolled into ABSU while he was governor.  There are indications that this may have been as a result of the face-off between the former governor and his successor, Theodore Orji.
