ICPC Compels Benue Polytechnic to Award Certificate to Student 7 Years after Graduation
The Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission
(ICPC) has facilitated the release of the Statement of Result to a
former student of the Benue State Polytechnic, Mrs. Monica Kyasamkombo,
after seven years delay.
Mrs. Kyasakombo who read Marketing at
the Makurdi Study Centre of the Ugbokolo based school in 2008, had her
certificate wrongly withheld by the school management after completion
of the programme.
Mrs. Kyasakombo, in her petition to ICPC,
disclosed that she had enrolled as a Higher National Diploma (HND)
student in the institution in January, 2007. At the completion of her
studies in December, 2008 the institution failed to issue her any
evidence of having attended the school or completing her studies there.
Her repeated efforts to get the school to release her Statement of Result or certificate failed prompting her to petition ICPC.
on the petition, ICPC launched an investigation into the matter and
directed the institution to issue the petitioner her statement of result
pending the release of her certificate.
Out of gratitude, Mrs.
Kyasakombo wrote a letter of appreciation to the Commission, expressing
her gratitude for the prompt attention her petition received which has
led to the issuance of her statement of result.
ICPC Chairman, Mr. Ekpo Nta has directed that steps should be taken
(through the National Board for Technical Education) to prevent such
occurrences in the issuance of certificates to graduands in all
polytechnics across the nation.
