An ex-student has taken legal action against the Enugu State University of Science and Technology (ESUT) for administrative incompetence in incorrectly grading his Final Cumulative Grade Point Average.
ESUT has a reputation for operating without accountability and disregarding the concerns of students. However, the plaintiff’s lawsuit challenges this narrative.
The plaintiff has filed a suit at the Enugu State High Court, numbered AGB/30/2022, against ESUT, the Vice Chancellor, Registrar, and Dean of Law Faculty as the 1st-4th defendants, requesting that the court mandate ESUT to recalculate his FCGPA to reflect his true academic performance.
The defendants had previously ignored the plaintiff’s requests for correction, citing administrative incompetence, and further argued that the mistake had been necessary for the plaintiff to graduate from a different grade level.
ESUT is known for recurring incidents of this nature, with many ex-students regretting their decision to attend such an institution with high levels of administrative incompetence and negligence.
The plaintiff expressed concern for current and future students, questioning how ESUT qualifies as an institution of higher learning. The plaintiff also criticized the lack of ethics, corruption, disdain and neglect for students, and general incompetence displayed by ESUT.
The plaintiff urged others to speak up against ESUT’s incompetence, citing the need to correct the institution’s anomalies for the benefit of all students. The plaintiff acknowledged that the lawsuit was not only about personal gain but also about challenging ESUT’s incompetence and preventing similar incidents from recurring in the future.
The papers have been served, and the case has been fixed for hearing, but the defendants are yet to file any papers in court.
