Re: Alleged Certificate Racketeering In Abia State Polytechnic, Aba
The attention of the Abia Polytechnic, Aba has been drawn to a frivolous and malicious publication in both the online and mainstream media over an alleged certificate racketeering in the institution in relation to a National Diploma result issued to one Gregory Okwuchukwu Okoafor.
While the Polytechnic may not want to join issues with mischief makers, it wishes to categorically state as follows:
1) That the institution has at no time compromised it’s standard by engaging in certificate racketeering.
2) That the student in question was duly admitted by the institution and also fulfilled all conditions required for the issuance of his National Diploma Statement of result.
3) That the institution is ever ready to respond to any inquiries relating to its operations in line with laid down procedures.
4. That the institution is baffled that some media houses have thrown to the winds ethical issue of balance reportage, which requires that the positions of parties involved in an issue should be sought.
The institution hereby appeals to the public to disregard such malicious publication, and at the same time warns mischief makers to desist from dragging the hard earned image of the Polytechnic in the mud over selfish purposes and interests considering that the institution is apolitical in its operations.
Consequently, the institution has mandated its legal team to explore all legitimate options to redress the issue.
