An appeal Court sitting in Owerri, Imo State, has nullified the judgement of an Isuikwuato High Court which restored a bachelors degree certificate of the Senate Chief Whip, Orji Uzor Kalu, which was earlier stripped by Abia State University.

The court said the trial court lacked jurisdiction over the matter.

Delivering judgement in Owerri, the Imo State capital, Justice Adefope-Okojie upheld the withdrawal of Orji Uzor Kalu’s certificate by the university.

The Appeal Court said the respondent ought to have exhausted all the remedies available to him before approaching the court to challenge the decision of the Senate of Abia state University.

Abia State University through its Registrar in March 2, 2013 withdrew the Certificate awarded to Orji Uzor Kalu for violating university’s admission and graduation extant rules and regulations

Reacting to the judgement, counsel to the appellant, Jesse Nwaenyo said the institution received the judgement with joy, noting that it had further proven that the respondent, Orji Uzor Kalu, did not merit the certificate.

In March 2013, Abia State University (ABSU) stripped Orji Uzor Kalu of its degree certificate on the premise that he spent only two semesters in school instead of six, and that his Admission-by-Transfer, violated the Academic Regulations of the University, its hard-earned reputation and the credibility of the certificates it awards.”

Orji Uzor Kalu later approached the Court to restore his Degree Certificate, and an Abia State High Court, sitting in Isuikwuato restored Kalu’s bachelors degree certificate, stating that ABSU denied him fair hearing.
