EKSU-MOCPED graduates cry for certificates


Be patient —MOCPED
Until we receive bank alert —EKSU
What Adeniyi Owoduni was told when coming to Michael Otedola College of Primary Education (MOCPED), Noforija, Epe Lagos State for a degree programme was that the students of the institution enjoyed similar privilege with that of the Ekiti State University (EKSU), Ado-Ekiti. The college in additional to its regular programmes is also running some degree programmes in conjunction with EKSU leading to the award of degree certificates bearing the names of the two institutions.

With this in mind, Owodunni believed that he would collect his certificate immediately after graduation just as it is applicable to EKSU graduates. But three years down the line, the 49-year-old graduate of political science had left the college without knowing when to be issued his statement of results let alone the certificat.

“I spent six years to study political science instead of four years that the students in EKSU are spending for the same course, yet I cannot get my certificate,” he lamented. National Mirror gathered that Owodunni is not alone in the situation. Thousands of others who graduated from the college from 2010 to date are equally affected. Omola Thompson, Rofiat Ahmadu and Adeyinka Borokini who studied Political Science, Economics and Mathematics respectively are some of them. They told National Mirror that their inability to be in possession of their certificates some years after graduation is already debarring them from seeking gainful employment. “And we have appealed on several occasions to the school authority to give us our certificates without success,” Omola said. “That is why we have concluded that the leadership is not concerned about our plight.”

But the Provost of the college, Prof. Olu Akeusola debunked the students’ claim that all the 2010 set have not collected their certificates, saying some have already collected theirs while others are being processed. “So, it is a lie that we abandon them as it won’t be our pride to do so,” he said. Akeusola who said he inherited the problem in 2011 when he came on board as the provost blamed the development on poor coordination of the programme by the past administration.

He said the former administration was unable to take the results of the students down to the affiliate institution due to the failure of students to pay their school fees on time and some other discrepancies. “It was when I assumed office that I made the students realised the need for them to pay the fees which they did in 2011,” he stressed. Akeusola, a Professor of Comparative Grammar also explained that the internal crisis that engulfed the college in the last two years including student incessant protests was another serious factor that is slowing down the process that will lead to the issuance of the certificates.

Nevertheless, he said that a committee is already working to facilitate the process while appealing to the affected former students to remain calm. In their own reactions, the management of Ekiti State University (EKSU) said MOCPED had not been able to present the results to them for approval due to non remittance of funds. Speaking with National Mirror, the Deputy Director, Affiliate Colleges in EKSU, Dr. Florence Osalusi explained that the Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Patrick Aina, had visited the institution, on debt recovery and the need for the authority to present the results for senate approval but had yielded no positive results.
“And they won’t get the certificate until the college fulfill its own part of the bargain by remitting the fees to us,” she concluded.

BEFORE THINGS GO OUT OF HAND: BEING A PRESS RELEASE OF NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF NIGERIAN STUDENTS (NANS) ON THE BRUTAL ATTACK BY SECURITY MEN ORDERED ON STUDENTS OF MICHAEL OTEDOLA COLLEGE OF PRIMARY EDUCATION (MOCPED) BY THE MANAGEMENT OF THE COLLEGE


The National Association of Nigerian Students, Joint Campus Committee, Lagos State condems the brutal treatment of students of Michael Otedola College of Primary Education, affiliated to Ekiti State University during a peaceful protest over a statement released by the main campus of the affiliated college over a huge debt owned by the college. This brutal treatment is against the human rights of the students who are trying to protect their future.

NANS, without any iota of doubt, holds the Lagos State Government responsible for its negligence and carelessness in not been able to monitor the activities of the school especially on the aspect of the school management to the extent that the institution could be owing the university it is affiliated to a huge sum of money.

Therefore, the association is demanding an urgent intervention of the state government in ensuring that the results of the students are issued and also the students that were beaten and injured by the military men in the event of the peaceful protest should be compensated by either the school management or any concerned body before the over 700,000 students in Lagos troop out to stage another protest.

Furthermore, the National Association of Nigerian students, Lagos axis, frown bitterly at the uncivilized attitude of politicians as regard the forthcoming election, in which they have find it difficult in controlling their members in having peaceful campaign rallies.

The effect of the inexpert and amateurish governance of the federal government have heavy tolls on our members. We supply our own power with generators and we can’t even tell categorically the duration we use public power. 80% of our axis in states like Borno, Yobe and Adamawa are under the hostage of Boko Haram – bombings are targeted at both Christians and Muslims, churches, mosque and schools. It is even difficult to state categorically if Boko Haram is religiously or politically undertone. How many of our politicans have their children that are graduates sitting at home unemployed, bear the brunt of insecurity, send their children to public school, patronise government hospitals like we do.

The so called Nigerian polical thieves are all over in the executives, legislature and Judiciary arms of government. The student community tags them “execu-thieves, legisla-thieves and judi-sharers. They dont have a religion that has bind them together other than the religion of stealing, looting and siphoning with impunity.

National Association of Nigerian Students once again want to use this medium to notify the Ekiti state governor that the fact that the national body of NANS are obviously politically affiliated to a particular party does not mean that every of its member also should be forced to that same party, in respect to these we demand the immediate release of one of our student leaders, the National Vice President (External Affairs) Tosin Ogunkuade aka Jasper, that was arrested in Ekiti state on the order of the state governor. We would like to remind the Ekiti State governor the provision of the Nigerian constitution on Rights of the Citizens, that a citizen shall have the freedom of association. We therefore demand the immediate release of National Vice President from his unlawful detention, BEFORE THINGS GO OUT OF HAND.

Aluta continua, Victoria Ascertain

Com. Sanusi Sulaimon Chairman NANS/JCC, Lagos Axis
