House of Representatives Member Accused of Forging University of Jos Certificate

Published

on

A member of House of Representatives representing Ningi/Warji Federal Constituency of Bauchi State, Mallam Abdulrazak Nuhu Bature, who had reportedly said he was a holder of Advanced Diploma Certificate in Public Administration from the University of Jos has been denied by the institution.

Bature had claimed to be a 2006/2007 graduate of the ADPA programme of the institution in his curriculum vitae but the university insisted that he was never its student. The authorities of the University of Jos have disclaimed The authorities of the University of Jos through the office of the Registrar recently issued a disclaimer on the federal lawmaker in a national daily on the premise that he was never at any time a student of the university.

Surprisingly, within two weeks, there was another counter rejoinder emanating from the same institution retracting the earlier disclaimer. The purported rejoinder as published in two national dallies was said to have emanated from the office of the registrar entitled: “Re-Disclaimer,” and had claimed that the published disclaimer did not emanate from the university, urging the public to discountenance it.

Apparently worried by the rejoinder which could discredit the Institution, the university authorities, through its Deputy Registrar (Information and Publications), Mr. Steve Otowo, described the advertisement as a forgery designed to confuse the public and re-affirmed its earlier publication that the legislator was never a student of the institution, adding that the university stood by the earlier disclaimer.

According to the statement, “The recent publication claiming that the disclaimer did not emanate from the university is clearly a desperate attempt to confuse issues and it cannot stand. The person was never a student of this university… For the avoidance of doubt, I wish to reiterate that Abdulrazak Nuhu Bature never applied for, nor was he ever given admission into the ADPA Programme of this university. He, therefore, did not graduate with the 2006/2007 set as he claimed nor with any other set for that matter.

“The ADPA testimonial and certificate that the said Abdulrazak Nuhu Bature claimed to have obtained are forged as the documents did not originate from the university”, Otowo said.

FG, ASUU Talks On IPPIS, UTAS End In Deadlock

ASUU and FG

The meeting between the Federal Government and the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) on Thursday ended in a deadlock.

Although some agreements were reached at the meeting, the meeting is set to reconvene on Wednesday, October 21, 2020, by 3.00 pm after the Federal Executive Council (FEC) meeting for ASUU to report back on the decision of its NEC.

In a bid to end the strike, the federal government agreed to release N30billion for payment of arrears of earned academic allowance to the university lecturers.

The communiqué issued at the end of the meeting revealed that the release of N20 billion funds for revitalisation of public universities will be payable by the end of January 2021.

On the issue of Earned Academic Allowances(EAA), which had accumulated to N40 billion since November 2019, the Accountant General of the Federation (AGF) made a commitment to release N30 billion on or before November 6, 2020.

He said the remaining N10 billion would be spread equally over the two tranches to be paid in May 2021 and February 2022, respectively.

The communiqué also revealed that ASUU agreed to take the offer to its members for consideration and revert by Wednesday, October 21, 2020.

The issue of the implementation of the Integrated Payroll and Personnel Information System (IPPIS) almost stalled the meeting as the federal government asked that IPPIS be allowed to operate in the interim until the test run on UTAS is concluded.

But ASUU insisted on payment of outstanding salaries on the old GIFMIS platform before full implementation of UTAS.
