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.”

One of the ‘best’ lecturers in UNILORIN allegedly steals other lecturers works

Published

on

 

Despite the fact that the University of Ilorin, UNILORIN is the first tertiary institution in Nigeria to develop a software to fight plagiarism, a disgraceful academic fraud has reportedly gone undetected in the institution.

The University’s Chairman of the Academic Staff Union of Union (ASUU) and Head of Geography and Environmental Management Department, Dr Usman Adebimpe Raheem is reportedly battling with allegations bordering on academic theft.

According to the Nation, Dr Raheem’s alleged plagiarism was found out when a graduate student of another Nigerian University used a few paragraphs from the lecturer’s works in his own Master’s degree thesis without acknowledgement.

When asked by his supervisor why he did not reference the paragraphs, the student said he got th paragraphs from earlier articles published by Dr Raheem himself which he (Dr Raheem) also used elaborately without any reference.

Sensing academic fraud, the supervisor dug deeper into Dr Raheem’s works and found out that his ”publications are generally filled with massive word-for-word copying, duplication, data fraud and so on,” the Nation reports.

Further checks on Dr Raheem’s work since 2009, also shows that the lecturer who is now an Associate Professor at UNILORIN has been practising outright duplications and self-plagiarism for years.

The ASUU Chairman UNILORIN chapter also has some academic works he attributed to himself that were reportedly copied word-for-word from other peoples’ works.

The Nation reports that an academic work published by Fatai Egberongbe (et al) in October 2006 is one of the works the UNILORIN lecturer stole.

According to the newspaper, ”One of the works that became a casualty in the itchy fingers of Dr Raheem is “Oil Spill Disaster Monitoring along Nigerian Coastline,” published by Fatai Egberongbe (et al) in October 2006 in Shaping the Change, Munich, Germany”.

Plagiarism is a very serious offence in academia and its penalties include outright expulsion and public shaming.

5 times you should never feel guilty for skipping class

Published

on

 

If skipping classes is not a thing you enjoy doing as an undergraduate, you’ll most likely feel bad when you unintentionally skip one.

When this happens, you really don’t have to shame yourself or feel so guilty to the point that you begin to feel you’re the laziest student in the world.

If you skip a class as a result of any of the following reasons, please don’t get upset with yourself.

1. When you use the lecture time for an important assignment

There’s always that assignment that is so important that you can’t afford to ignore it. If a lecture time coincides with the time for the assignment, don’t feel bad if you skip class for such an assignment.

2. When the lecture is a waste of time

Yea, some lecturers can be very lazy to come to class at the appropriate time, and when they do come they’ll come and sell books, give you handouts and end up teaching you nothing. Missing such a class shouldn’t upset you.

3. When you have a side hustle that pays your bills

Your primary purpose of being a university is to make chase your academic dreams and make fine grades, right? Yes, you also need to make money as an undergrad » . So, if a lecture disturbs a side hustle that pays your school fee, you may have to consider the side business and ignore the class but hey, don’t make it a habit.

4. When you’re not fine

When you miss a class because of health issues, don’t ever get bitter or get angry with yourself. Your well-being is more important. Even if your lecturer is aware of your state of health, he won’t advise you attend his/her class.

5. When you have a school engagement

If you’re a member of the school debate team, football team or music band and you miss a class or test while representing your school in a competition, don’t let it disturb you emotionally. Talk to the course lecturer about it and see if you have a chance to write your own test.
