IMOPOLY Corpers Sent Packing From NYSC Camp Over Non-Accreditation

Really some sad news, as graduates of the Imo State polytechnic, Umuagwo, were dismissed from the 2013 Batch ‘C’ National Youth Service Corps, NYSC orientation camps across all camps in Nigeria for non-accreditation of their courses of study.

The aggrieved graduates yesterday visit the Government House, Owerri, to protest their plight.

The aggrieved students, some of whom were putting on NYSC uniforms, were grieved over what they described as delay by the management of their academic institution to intervene in the matter.

While addressing the protesting students, the governor of Imo State, governor Rochas Okorocha reassured the students that his government would quickly resolve the matter immediately.

The governor was also astonished that the graduates were dismissed from various NYSC orientation camps across the nation.

Some of the enraged graduates started narrating their ordeals, some of them explained that they were dismissed from the orientation camps because the courses they studied were not accredited by the National Board for Technical Education, NBTE.

However, one of the graduates told the governor that he was one of the many posted to Plateau State, adding after all the necessary documentations, students of Imo State
polytechnic were ordered to go to the administrative block with their statement of

He also disclosed this and we quote him in his word:
“We obeyed and they brought out their master List and started cross checking our files. Our statement of result tallied with our various fields but our call up letters bore different courses.

“They ended up accusing us that we forged our results and sent us packing from NYSC orientation camp,” the aggrieved youth told Okorocha.

“The officials were insistent that would not work with what we presented. They asked us to go and meet the school management. They threw all of us out and collected our kits,” the boy lamented.

We just hope that the governor do something really fast, these students/graduates time should not be put to waste.
