NOUN: An open letter to Prof. Tenebe “
Corruption is the main obstacle to Nigeria’s economic and social development,” this was emphatically echoed by the Vice Chancellor of the National Open University of Nigeria (NOUN), Professor Vincent Ado Tenebe at the public presentation of a book titled, “Nigeria, The Way Through Corruption To The Well Being Of A People.” When I made up my mind to expose the corrupt practices at certain NOUN Study Centers across the country, little did I know that Professor Tenebe had previously condemned the act without mincing words. Sir, there the prevalence of pandemic corruption at some study centers of the National Open University of Nigeria (NOUN); please we all need your help.
First, students paid f or course materials at t he beginning of the semester, but ending up getting nothing; I thought the university may not have made sufficient course material, then, THIS - Uyo Study Center is riddled with acts of corruption propagated by some Admin Officers at the Uyo Study Center of NOUN. Supervisors of final year students’ projects at the Uyo Study Center of NOUN put students entrusted to their care under unwarranted tension and pressure. A supervisor would shamelessly but boldly demand that a student struggling to raise funds to see him/herself through school for the sum of N15,000 to N20,000 before a student would be given the final draft of his/her project for typing. Failure to comply, the consequences are for the students to bear. Is the honorable professor aware of these rotten eggs in his basket?
I call on these individuals at NOUN’s Uyo Study Center to be investigated; if not relieved of their duties immediately because these students in question are meant to submit their final projects to the university on 20th October, 2015 (just about a week away), but the lack of N20, 000 or the not letting go of N20, 000 could see them not graduate as at when they are meant to do so. Please Sir, the fate of these “younger people undergoing educational training” at your university is in your hands, please help!
