Education is still relevant in Nigeria despite the dilemma of unemployed graduates in the country. Therefore, anybody that is interested in going to school to acquire education should be encouraged and supported.
A staff of Nasarawa State Polytechnic, Lafia, collected N15, 000 from a candidate to secure admission for her but has failed to do so. Initially, Federal Polytechnic in Lafia was the candidate’s choice and she was informed by a source to come over for screening.
On getting to Lafia, she ignorantly went to the state polytechnic and thereafter discovered she was misinformed since the Federal Polytechnic Lafia was not conducting any screening for the intended students at that moment but there was an ongoing screening of incoming students at the state polytechnic.
My investigation has shown that the man who informed and directed the candidate thought the state polytechnic was her choice. Instead of going back to wait for the screening at the Federal Polytechnic, the man advised her to do change of institution and leave the rest to him which she did.
After that he demanded for N15, 000 as fees before he could ensure the admission for her. But he failed to secure the admission. The management of Nasarawa State Polytechnic should do the needful by calling the lecturer to order and ensuring refund of the money.
