NYSC Rejects 3 Illiterate Graduates Of Enugu State University of Science and Technology (ESUT)- Happynaija..com

Three “graduates” of Enugu State University of Science and Technology mobilized to participate in the National Youth Service Corps scheme have shown lack of competence and intelligence level expected of genuine degree holders.

According to documents obtained by ESUT NEWS ONLINE,

the three “graduates,” who are serving in ABUJA,

Lagos and KOGI states respectively, were rejected,

with formal letters sent to the state coordinators by their

areas of primary assignment and forwarded to the

NYSC headquarters in Abuja.


The Director General of NYSC, had informed the NUC of the

presence of corps members who displayed

“glaring lack of academic ability and intelligence level

expected of genuine Nigerian graduates,

which were consistently exhibited by the three students

from the Enugu State University of Science and Technology.”


Attaching copies of letters from NYSC secretariats in Abuja,

Lagos and Kogi, “As contained in the reports,

the corps members exhibited signs of incompetence and low

intelligence level which range from inability to complete registration

formats correctly to not being able to teach pupils at nursery school level.


These inadequacies led to their rejections by their employers

in their various states of deployment.”


The case, according to an insider’s account,

has baffled the National Universities Commission (NUC) and

prompted the setting up of a committee to

“verify the integrity of the degrees,”

and find out if there was collaboration by the university.


Federal education authorities are suspecting a wide-ranging

scam that might have been going on for years.


To unravel how the three corps members were mobilised,

the NUC has already set up a panel, comprising officials of NYSC,

Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB)

and the State Security Service (SSS).


The mandate of the panel,

according to a letter dated September 24, 2012 signed by

NUC Director of Quality Assurance, Professor C.F. Mafiana,

“is to fully investigate the report with a view to identifying the culprits,

including others similarly mobilised and their collaborators,

and ensuring sanctions accordingly.


The team would be chaired by a visiting professor in the NUC.”

Out of the three corps members,

Jane could hardly write the Roman figures from one to 10 in words,

just as she could not write three states and their capitals.


She could not provide the names of two major rivers in Nigeria,

just as she failed to name three countries that share border with Nigeria.


Obioma, according to the documents,

was rejected by Kings College, Lagos,

after it was discovered that she was grossly incompetent

to perform her duties.


A further test on her by the Lagos state NYSC secretariat

revealed that though a graduate of Electricals/Electronics,

she never passed any of the science subjects at the secondary school level.


The third fellow, John, who was posted to Abuja,

was rejected by a nursery/primary school known as FEMA Schools

because of his inability to read and write.


Having been rejected by two employers, he had to be reposted by

Abuja NYSC to a bakery, pending the final determination of his

case by the NYSC national headquarters.


When queried on his incompetence,

John proved his incompetence when he responded in writing:

“I awarded a degree in Enugu State University of Science and Technology

I have a probeam in my university am manegn my siefe to funsh my school.”


A source disclosed on Friday that members of the panel

would soon commence probing the circumstances under

which the “graduates” were released by the

university to participate in the NYSC scheme.
