Admission Scam Rocks Nasarawa University, VC Allots 2,483 Slots to Himself
The Chairman of the Ad Hoc Committee on Education, Hon. Daniel Oga Ogazy has told the State Assembly that embattled Vice Chancellor of Nasarawa State University, Professor Mainoma Mohammed Akaro, allocated 2,483 admission slots to himself.
Hon. Ogazy made the damning disclosure on the floor of the Nasarawa State House of Assembly while presenting his committee report on admission irregularities in the University on Monday.
There had been much dust on the admission racket trending for years in the state university prompting the Assembly to set up the committee to investigate admission for 2015/2016 session. The adhoc committee investigating the scam has just tendered its reports.
According to the report, the Vice Chancellor, Prof Akaro, sidelined the Registrar of the University, Dr Dalhatu Mamman and other principal officers in the admission process.
The report also noted that the Vice Chancellor expelled 17 law students of the institution without following due process.
On the process of admission, it was discovered that non-indigenes were offered admissions using indigene certificates of various Local Government Areas of the state.
The committee therefore, recommended that desk officers should be appointed to the University from the various Local Government Areas to ascertain the indigeneship status of the candidates from the state seeking admission into the university.
Hon. Ogazy assured that the full report would be released to the public ahead of the release of the supplementary admission list.
