A Lagos-based IT firm, NQB8 Limited, has threatened to drag Babcock University to court for breaching the terms of an agreement between the two organizations.
The company disclosed this in a statement issued on Sunday. It said it wanted the public to be informed about “the unethical conduct, unexcused failure to committed duty and perpetual violation of contract terms by the Management of Babcock University having exhausted every known avenue to make peace”
The organisation revealed that it had an agreement to design a computer application for the university but claimed that the terms of the agreement have been abused by Babcock.
The statement read in part: “On 30th July 2014, Babcock University and our organization entered into a service level agreement to develop and manage an encompassing user friendly/interactive online application form portal to ease students’ admission process of the University.
Our organization deployed human and capital resources into this task believing the institution is an ivory tower of integrity, having been advertised as one which places premium on truth, transparency and dignity in labour. Alas, we were shocked to discover the contrary,”
The IT firm further revealed that the terms of the agreement were extensively analyzed and agreed by the two parties but claimed that the university has chosen to cancel deal outside the agreed terms.
The statement added: “The said application was agreed upon via a consensual no-duress sessions and terms of the contract was reviewed extensively by the institution before execution. To our utmost dismay, our organization woke up to an email claiming arbitrary cancellation of the painstaking work without any forewarning which contravenes paragraph 8 of the service level agreement”
NQB8 said it has taken legal steps to address its grief. “Our attorney has already written to Babcock University giving the institution a 14 days ultimatum to rescind this felonious decision. This public apprise is now issued to guide members of the public in dealing with the institution”
