The Student Union Government (SUG) of the Federal Polytechnic Nekede, Imo state has said the lady who claimed her successful graduation was due to the help of God and her private parts was not a student of the school.
A statement signed by the SUG president, Ahaneku Valentine on Tuesday, alleged that the student was identified as Sharon Ogechi Okoroafor from Ngor-Okpala local government area of Imo state.
The Student umbrella body said her post was “sacrilegious and condemnable”, alleging that Okoroafor did not have a matriculation number with the school. It also said she did not have any research project, let alone a supervisor.
“We have noted with grave concern a viral video of a lady claiming to be a student of Federal Polytechnic Nekede, our great institution and noble alma mater,” SUG said.
“We have conducted a background check on the said student who goes by the name, Sharon Ogechi Okoroafor from Ngor-Okpala LGA of Imo State. We wish to state, thus, that the Student Union Government views this video as sacrilegious and condemnable.
“Also, the said Sharon is not a bonafide student of the Federal Polytechnic Nekede because she has no Registration (Matriculation) Number. She also has no project or research supervisor to show she has graduated.
“Indeed, the purported student never joined others to do the defense which brought them to school because she had no work to defend. In fact, reports have it that she only came to take valedictory photos with her so-called coursemates.
“Anyone can gatecrash in lectures but only a student who has been duly registered and screened by the institution is a genuine student.’
The student union said the institution is a reputable brand in the country, and cannot condone indiscipline and immorality.
“Our institution is a reputable brand across the nation, having been rated best-performing polytechnic, and our Rector as best Rector five times. It is the same institution that has produced great minds and leaders. We can therefore not allow the name of our great institution to be taken to the mud by the accusations of a base character,” it added.
It concluded thus, “We, therefore, urge Miss Sharon Okoroafor to stop forthwith in her fraudulent claims that she is a student of Federal Polytechnic Nekede Owerri. Already she has caused great damage to the sensibilities of noble students of the polytechnic and those of the entire Nigerian students nationwide. We leave her in the hands of posterity to judge.”
