…School in court over debts
Several illegal deals bordering on sales of National Diploma and Higher National Diploma results and certificates by the Uyo City Polytechnic, Nduetong Oku, have been reported to The GUIDE newspaper.
The deals which were leaked by a senior staff of the institution to the head of our investigations desk are cut by a “notorious” member of the school’s management team.
Our source alleged that the Polytechnic was selling off diploma certificates to members of the public for as low as N250,000, while higher national diploma certificates are sold from N350, 000 – N400,000.
The source added that a handful of graduands parading certificates of the school never enrolled for a programme in the Polytechnic.
“One very notorious member of the management team is helping people who have never attended the Polytechnic to acquire certificates once they can pay for such.
“I don’t know who and who are involved but I know that the anchor man championing these dirty deals is working with a number of people including heads of departments.
“It’s silly to tear the certificate of a school and give to someone who has never applied for admission, nor was given admission”, the source said.
Independent findings by our team of investigators revealed that exams officers, in some cases working in connivance with heads of departments have in exchange for money or sex or both cleared many students who had outstanding courses.
A few students studying for higher national diploma in the Polytechnic who spoke on plea of strict confidentiality said they have had to “sort to get some courses wiped off” for them.
“My dear, I no go lie, I have paid in kind before. I’m not the only one”, a female student of the Polytechnic said.
