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.

Sex-For-Marks Scandal: ‘How I Was Seduced By My Student’ – Dismissed OAU Professor Tells His Own Story

Published

on

According to a report by New Telegraph, the Professor of Management Accounting at the Obafemi Awolowo University (OAU), Ile-Ife, Richard Akindele, who was recently dismissed for s*xually harassing a postgraduate student of the institution, Ms. Monica Osagie, has said he was only trapped by the student.
In his reply to query issued to him by the university, which was exclusively obtained by New Telegraph, Prof. Akindele explained that the five rounds of s*x demand from Monica, as revealed by the leaked audio conversation between them, was a deliberate attempt to discourage the student and at the same time invite her to his office to obtain evidence.
The embattled professor, who also submitted screenshots of earlier WhatsApp conversations including nude pictures allegedly belonging to Ms. Osagie exchanged between them, said the student had, sometimes in November 2017, sexually harassed him in his office by pulling off her dress and revealing her body from chest to toes.
According to the WhatsApp messages presented by the lecturer, which New Telegraph also obtained through a source, Ms. Osagie had allegedly initiated conversation with the lecturer at about 5:52a.m. on Sunday, February 25, 2018, declaring her interest in the lecturer, and sent him seductive messages, including nude photos.
Akindele wrote: “I know the lady in the audio recording to be an MBA regular student.
I recall sometimes in November 2017 when she came to my office in company of some of her other MBA students/colleagues to inform me they failed a course that I took with another lecturer and pleaded that they should be upgraded. But I informed them that it was not possible because the result has been submitted and approved by the department.
They left my office, but the lady returned alone to my office some few minutes after they had left begging me to upgrade her to an “A.” She confessed that she did not fail the course, but that she had two other courses in the Department that she failed (not any of which that I am involved) but that she would need an “A” in my own course to boost her CGPA to get to an average of 50 to enable her obtain an MBA Degree. “I promptly turned down her request.
She knelt down and held my legs pretending to be begging me, but was actually romancing me. I shouted at her to stop her madness, but she immediately stood up, raised her gown up to cover her face and I noticed she was not wearing any pant.
“I was afraid she could shout to attract other people and it may be difficult for me to defend myself of sexual assault. So I had to gently tell her to calm down and that we will do it five times on another day and place to which she agreed and gently left my office.
I had to do that to save myself from any possible accusation of sexual assault which may be difficult to prove if she had shouted on that day. Of course, she attempted calling me at other times and seeing me after that day, but I kept avoiding her.
“Since then, she kept sending messages to me regularly describing how good she is in bed and how badly she needs to sleep with me and get an “A” in the course, all of which I resisted.”
Akindele explained that the day the leaked phone call was recorded, he had deliberately played along because on the said day, two unknown vehicles with unidentified men and a lady suspected to be Ms. Osagie had trailed him from OAU campus to Moro Campus, where the MBA programme was being run.
He said: “On that fateful morning, I left my office on campus for Centre for Distance Learning (CDL), Moro to go for the MBA lecture. As I was driving out of the university, I noticed two vehicles following… I was somehow scared and wondered what the occupants in the cars were up to. While still wondering, my phone rang and it was the lady in question calling, but I did not pick.
“When the phone rang the third time, I picked and sensing danger with cars behind me, I decided to play along with her request, and that was what led me to demand five times of sex and for her to come to my office.
“I have evidence and proof that she naked herself and harassed me sexually and I have a naked picture she sent to my WhatsApp contact, pressing that she wanted to have sexual intercourse with me. I have known this lady to be a bad behaved lady and as if she is a psychotic person….”
Akindele said if truly he had wanted to sleep with the student, he would not have demanded five times of sex rounds at a go, saying dating a girl would not ordinarily begin with the request for five times.
The dismissed professor said it was only unfortunate that the girl was faster in implicating him. In the screenshots of WhatsApp messages of February 25 allegedly exchanged between Prof. Akindele and Ms. Osagie, which was exclusively obtained by New Telegraph, the conversations went follows:
Ms. Osagie: So ure awake by dis tym. Dis will b a good time to giv u a blowjob
Akindele: Yes. Meaning?
Ms. Osagie: Suck ur cock.
Akindele: Haa
Ms. Osagie: Stop saying haa. So wen u are wit a woman u just climb on her nd finish?
Akindele: Huuuu
Ms. Osagie: Just saying. Mayb we can try d 69 position 1 day.
Akindele: Meaning
Ms. Osagie: Dis one is ur assignment google and find out wat it means.
Then Prof. Akindele sent two pictures wishing her happy Sunday and saying good morning. But enraged by these messages from the lecturer, the student replied as follows:
Ms. Osagie: Are u kiddin me. I thought u were goin 2 send me pictures of a man suckin a girl’s pussy while she sucks the man’s dick.
Akindele: Ok.
Ms. Osagie: No, it is not okk, let me send u mine but you won’t show anybody ooo
Akindele: Ok.
Ms. Osagie: Promise?
Akindele: Yes.
Following this pledge, Monica sent in pictures of her private parts and was followed by other conversations.
But Monica has refused to comment on the matter, querying reasons behind the introduction of the evidences at this stage. Speaking through her counsel and the Executive Director, Women Advocates, Research and Documentation (WARDC), Dr. Abiola Akiode-Afolabi, Osagie accused the media of attempting to wage a media war against her, saying she had been traumatised enough to warrant another round of public disgrace.
According to Akiode- Afolabi, the university has exonerated Osagie after reviewing all evidences tendered before it, and so would not tolerate any fresh facts, which she described as an afterthought.
She said: “Which fresh facts again? Did you see the school’s conclusion? Because the school came to the conclusion that she did not harass the man. Where did you now get your own facts? I hope it is not that the media want to feed fat on this story.
“But if you have facts, disclose now but we won’t hesitate to go to court o. This is because the girl has been embarrassed a lot and so if you people bring it up again and embarrass her, we would not take it lightly. She cannot comment on this matter any longer because the case is even before the court. So she cannot start denying anything. If you guys have anything, bring it out.
“The school did a factfinding of three levels and came to the conclusion that she didn’t harass anybody. “I am aware of all these messages you are saying, but please check your facts very well and look at the time you want to be bringing them out. So I am not going to speak to you on this, if you have your facts, bring them out and we will reply at the appropriate time. If we need to go to court, we will go to court.”
Meanwhile, efforts to speak to Osagie herself proved abortive as her line has remained permanently switched off.
But in his response to enquiries from New Telegraph, the university’s Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Eyitope Ogunbodede,confirmed that the institutions received the seductive messages by Ms. Osagie to Prof. Akindele as part of the lecturer’s responses to his query, but that they were not sufficient enough to exonerate him. According to Ogunbodede, the evidences showed that the two were found culpable, but that in the circumstance, there was a weaker partner and a stronger partner.
He said: “Prof. Akindele provided information that Ms. Osagie sent him nude pictures, but the panel did not consider that as sufficient justification for his actions and inaction.”
The OAU VC added that all laid down procedures were followed before reaching the conclusion. Asked why the university maintained silence on the allegation against the student, the Vice-Chancellor explained that the panel had also considered punishing Ms. Osagie, but found out that she was no longer the university’s student because she had overstayed on her MBA programme and so had lost her studentship.
The VC said: “Let me tell you that the university was not silent on the lady. If you read the press release, you would see that we really mentioned something relating to her in the report, but lecturers are supposed to act ‘in loco parentis’ for students. Even though Prof. Akindele provided the nude pictures, the right thing for him to do would have been to report her to appropriate authorities. And even as a stronger partner, Prof. Akindele had every right to discipline the student.
“And honestly, if our student had also been found culpable, the ideal thing would be to discipline the student. But in this case, this lady is no longer with us. The lady came for a programme, but she did not complete her programme within the stipulated time, and so she is not a registered student of our school. As at the time the issue came up, she was trying to resolve her failed courses, but could no longer come in to register. So the situation would have been different if she was our student.
But in this case, the lady is not entitled to our certificate.”
Meanwhile, New Telegraph has learnt that the Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission (ICPC) has intervened on the matter. Both Professor Akindele and Osagie had been invited by the ICPC. The anti-graft agency has conducted forensic audit on all evidences tendered by the two parties.
