NYSC Rejects 3 Graduates for not being able to speak ‘correct’ English

Three “graduates” of Enugu State University of Science and Technology
mobilised to participate in the National Youth Service Corps scheme have been
rejected by the NYSC for showing lack of competence and intelligence level
expected of genuine degree holders.

The three “graduates,” who are serving in Niger, Lagos and Adamawa states
respectively, were rejected, with formal letters sent to the state coordinators
by their areas of primary assignment and forwarded to the NYSC headquarters in

One of the three corps members, Okochi
could hardly write the Roman figures from one to 10 in words, just as she could
not write three states and their capitals.

She could not provide the names of two major rivers in Nigeria, just as
she failed to name three countries that share border with Nigeria.

The second corps member, Akunna was
rejected after she was made to undergo a test by the Lagos state NYSC
secretariat. Right there, it was revealed that though a graduate of
Electricals/Electronics, she never passed any of the science subjects at the
secondary school level.

The third fellow, Chukwuebuka, who
was posted to Niger state, was rejected by a nursery/primary school known as
FEMA Schools because of his inability to read and write.

Having been rejected by two employers, he had to be reposted by Niger
state NYSC to a bakery, pending the final determination of his case by the NYSC
national headquarters.

When queried on his incompetence, Chukwuebuka proved his incompetence
when he responded in writing: “I awarded a degree in Enugu State
University of Science and Technology I have a probeam in my university am
manegn my siefe to funsh my school.”  Hehehehe!

The case, according to an insider’s account, has baffled the National
Universities Commission (NUC) and prompted the setting up of a committee to
“verify the integrity of the degrees,” and find out if there was collaboration
by the university.
The three corps members are: Nwankwo Elias Chukwuebuka, a graduate of BSc Electrical/Electronics, with code number NG/11B/1660 and a NYSC call-up number NYSC/EST/2011/1777093; Mbah Linda Akunna, a graduate of BSc Electricals/Electronics with code number LA/11B/5245, a call-up number EST/2011/178882 and matriculation number ESUT/2005/96998, and Okochi Adaeze Kate, a graduate of Geography/Meteorology, with code number AD/12B/0389, call-up number EST/2012/148292 and matriculation number ESUT/2006/10400.
