Ebonyi lecturer renounces Nigerian citizenship

Published

on

Victor Koreyo, a lecturer at the department of ceramics and glass technology, Akanu Ibiam federal polytechnic, Afikpo, Ebonyi state, has written to President Muhammadu Buhari to renounce his Nigerian citizenship.

Koreyo said he arrived at the decision following what he described as eight years of frustration.

He said he was demoted for a period of eight years by the management of the institution.

He alleged that since 2010 till date, the institutions had refused to approve his application for staff development opportunity because of “ethnic politics” in the school.

“I love to continue as a citizen of this great nation on earth. But since I do not have the financial power or connection to challenge the rector to obey the federal government’s directives in my favour, I decided to take this peaceful action,” he said.

“I believe this peaceful action and step of honour will prevent the rector from killing me by premeditated frustration of my constitutional rights to social justice as the citizen of Nigeria. I have nursed this feeling of suicide to end these eight years of frustration by the rector and officials of the Akanu Ibiam polytechnic division of tertiary education department of the federal ministry of education.

“And have decided the renunciation of my citizenship by birth will be the best way to peacefully end my quest for social justice at the ministry of education and finally resign from federal public service of Nigeria.”

Published

on

The National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) has confirmed July 24 for the commencement of orientation course for prospective Stream 1, Batch ‘B’ corps members nationwide.
The spokesperson of the agency, Adenike Adeyemi, disclosed this in a press statement Wednesday.
She said the orientation course for the batch will hold from July 24 to August 13.
According to the statement, the Director-General of the Scheme, Suleiman Kazaure, disclosed the information at a pre-orientation meeting of the NYSC Management with state coordinators and Camp Commandants in Abuja on Tuesday.
According to the spokesperson, Mr Kazaure said details regarding the conduct of the stream II edition of the orientation course would be released later.
The Director-General urged the coordinators to communicate policy issues discussed at the meeting to camp officials for effective conduct of the programme.
He also directed the coordinators to pay adequate attention to issues of security and general welfare of corps members, noting they must ensure strict compliance with the Management’s directives on healthcare, feeding, accommodation and camp sanitation, amongst others.
He also urged them to step up efforts at sensitising state governments and other stakeholders on their statutory responsibilities to NYSC, especially in the provision and upgrading of camp facilities.
The NYSC scheme was created in 1973 to reconstruct, reconcile and rebuild the country after the Nigerian civil war.
According to the NYSC, the purpose of the scheme is primarily to inculcate in Nigerian youth the spirit of selfless service to the community, and to emphasise the spirit of oneness and brotherhood of all Nigerians, irrespective of cultural or social background.

Why Kemi Adeosun’s ‘exemption certificate’ is fake — Ex-NYSC Director

Published

on

A retired Director of Mobilisation at the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC), Anthony Ani, has cited reasons why the purported ‘Certificate of Exemption’ owned by Nigeria’s Minister of Finance, Kemi Adeosun, is not genuine and “wouldn’t have emanated from the NYSC”.
Mrs Adeosun became enmeshed in an embarrassing forgery scandal after this newspaper
exclusively reported that she skipped Nigeria’s mandatory national youth service youth
and then proceeded to procure a fake certificate to cover her tracks.
Authorities at the NYSC, who appears to be plotting a cover-up of the scandal, on Monday issued a rather vague press statement distancing itself from the certificate paraded by Mrs Adeosun, but at the same time claiming it was investigating the source of the document.
Mrs Adeosun is yet to respond to the issues raised, over 100 hours after the story broke.
PREMIUM TIMES reported on Tuesday that the NYSC issued the statement after top government officials desperate to cover-up the embattled minister. pressured its Director General, Suleiman Kazaure.
Mr Ani, who appeared on
Channels Television’s breakfast show, Sunrise Daily, said the certificate has footprints of a fake NYSC certificate.
He insisted that there was no way the NYSC would issue Certificate of Exemption to anyone who graduated before 30 years of age.
The retired director also faulted the supposed process of application for Certificate of Exemption that NYSC claimed Mrs Adeosun did.
He said applying for any certificate from NYSC is alien to the Corps, explaining that prospective corps members only present their credentials.
“You don’t apply for either NYSC certificate or NYSC certificate of national service or certificate of exemption, you present yourself for mobilisation. The system will determine whether you are to be exempted or you are not to be exempted,” he explained.
Answering another question, Mr Ani insisted that “[by] the NYSC procedure, you don’t apply for exemption and expect a certificate. You make yourself available [for mobilisation], when you are mobilised, those who are to be exempted are exempted and those who are to be deployed are deployed.”

Important things to take note when registering for your post UTME
The time we all waited for, has come.
It is no longer news that different schools like UNN, UNIPORT, OOU, UNIBEN and others, have released their Post UTME form. So, what does this tells you?
You can answer that yourself.
Before I focus on the topic of this post, i will love to advise you (aspirants) to take your time and read on tips to pass your post UTME and some other important info on this blog.
Also you can get a post UTME compiled past questions from us for free, all you have to do is to comment your email address on this blog and i will send the pdf format as soon as possible.
Now back to the topic of the post, “Important things to take note when registering for post UTME “.
Alot of students make mistakes whenever they are registering for post UTME online. This post will shed more light on the mistakes and corrections to them.
1. Your Name Must Be Spelt Correctly-
This is the number one and most common mistake made by aspirants when registering for post UTME. Spelling your name wrongly might be a very big problem on the day of your exam. Post UTME is not like JAMB where you can correct your mistake after you have successfully registered. So you have to be very careful when registering online.
2. Use the same name you used in your birth cert. , WAEC , JAMB –
I have seen occasions where an aspirant use , for example, “Olaniyi Adeola Gloria” in the WAEC registration and later use , for example, ” Olaniyi Adeola Bukola” in the JAMB registration .
This will be a very big problem to you either during your post UTME registration or during registration after being admitted. Also, you should arrange the name in the same way it was arranged in your birth cert. and other vital documents.
3. Input Your Correct O’level Result –
This shouldn’t be a new thing to aspirants , although it might be intentional or a mistake, either both sides, it is a big offence. Alot of UNILORIN newly admitted students who were caught in the act were sent home after being admitted. I know you don’t want to be in that same situation, then do the right thing.
4. Online payment during registration of post UTME-
This is sometimes, a big problem to the aspirants who are registering for the post UTME online because you will be asked to pay some fee for the registration. I will advise you to do this in a cybercafe where you know is safe, don’t take the risk of paying online with your smartphone.
I have received complains from aspirants in the past about not receiving RRR pin after the money have been deducted from your bank account, allowing to pay twice. I know you don’t want that, do you?
and the most important part;
5. Read the instructions before registering online-
I will advise you to read the guidelines before registering so as to avoid any form of mistakes that can cost you your chance of being admitted this year. Be careful.
In conclusion, never allow anyone to register for you in your absence, make sure you are there to access any error before the registration is being submitted.
You have any question to ask? Then comment below and I will reply you as soon as possible.
