The attention of Clifford University, Owerrinta and Ihie campuses, has been drawn to a false and misleading fabrication published by an Umuahia-based online platform, wherein the news platform alleged an attempt by an undisclosed bank to interfere in the activities of the Clifford University over debt.
In a release made available to www.newsmirrorng.com and signed by the registrar of the school, Dr. E. E. Eko says; “It is unfortunate that a body that calls itself a news platform can publish such an unprofessional and unguarded report that has no reference to any credible source or evidence”
Dr. Eko is worried why no single name, person or bank was quoted as a source or a confirmation of the report, describing all the lines of the report, the online platform published as outright falsehood and wondered why it flagrantly resorted to blackmail and defamation.
The Registrar of Clifford University added that, there is a clear inclination to communicate malice and a meditated intention to destroy the soaring reputation of the young university by the writer.
” We are therefore using this medium to refute this falsehood and also confirming to the general public that there is no such incident with any bank and no crisis of any sort bedeviling the school”, he added.
“The allegations are the figment of the imagination of platform and her sponsors.
Dr. Eko said, it’s on record that Clifford University is a Christian University that is wholly owned by the Seventh Day Adventist Church and that it has maintained a consistent growth index since its inception five years ago, while urging the public to dismiss the report as a baseless reportage.
