A man, who has been in a battle for his result with University of Uyo authorities since he graduated in 2008, finally received his result in 2017 and he took to Facebook to narrate the gruelling battle that lasted almost 10 years. Uduakobong Nquot said his result, a 2nd Class Honours in Accounting, was approved in 2008 but the university refused to give him his result, instead, they claimed he had abandoned his studies in 2006.
He claimed they went on to try various means to frustrate him, including a forgery allegation. He told reporters: “The Senate of this UNIUYO issued an official statement that I abandoned my studies in 2006 but that is a big lie. I have documents to show, in the long run, my result Bsc Accounting 2nd Class Honours had been in the University all these years.
“I feel so bad that the University has covered all that transpired. They even forged a new Master Mark Sheet in 2016 to cancel my original result in 2008. They also tampered with my files and removed my course forms and lying that I didn’t submit my course forms. “In all these the truths came out and my result was given to me close to 10 years. The trauma I went through can’t be imagined.”
Mr Nquot also shared a lengthy Facebook post narrating what transpired between him and his university.
He wrote: Look at the document attached: 1.No official letterhead of the University of Uyo 2.No reference number. Meaning of “forgery” –by virtue of section of 465 of the Criminal Code Law a person who makes a false document or writing knowing it to be false, and with intent that it may in any way be used or acted upon as genuine, whether in the state or otherwise, to the prejudice of any person, or with intent that any person may, in the belief that it is genuine, be induced to do or refrain from doing any act, whether in the state or elsewhere, is said to forge the document or writing.
This is the extent Officials of the University of Uyo can go” FORGERY”. 1. The Senate issued an official statement that I abandoned studies, which is a lie. 2. Officials of this University destroyed my course forms which I had submitted during my studentship.. 3.This same University produced an illegal Master Mark Sheet in 2017 with Second Class Honours in a bid to cancel my original result which was approved in 2008.
All their plans failed and they were put to shame. God was/is with me and I defeated them. God taught me about the Freedom of Information Act 2011. He directed me to apply under the FOI Act for my examination scripts, the illegal master mark sheet with Second Class Honours and other documents.
The next day, the Head of Examinations Mrs Akpan called me and said: “your result has been in this school for many years”.The University refused writing to me but resorted to phone calls. So that I will not have more written evidence. Finally, I received my result despite their criminal negligence, deceit, concealment, abuse of office, victimization, theft, alteration, forgery and violation of freedom of information act.
The question to the Senate of UNIUYO is how did a student whom you had issued an official statement that he abandoned school in 2006, received a Bachelor of Science Degree with 2nd Class Honours in 2017? A result which was approved on 7th November 2008 but released by #UNIYO on 6th September 2017.
Back to this forged letter of 9th August 2018. I received this forged letter of invitation to appear before a panel. In fact, one of the staff called me that I should be at the panel. I got to the Council Chambers and met with four strange men! These men had my file and documents. They asked for my name, which I gave them and started asking questions. A closer look at the Invitation Letter revealed this invitation was forged.
I asked a simple question “please can you introduce yourselves? They refused, the one who claimed to be Chairman said we should continue because they are the “Management of the University of Uyo”. I presented this forged letter and asked ” why is there no letterhead and reference number of UNIUYO on this letter? They were dumbfounded, the one who claimed he is the Chairman told me” the issue is that you have honoured the invitation of UNIUYO through the Office of the Registrar, so let us continue.
I was shocked and it dawned on me that these men were criminally minded. I took my phone to record, one of them said ” Mr Chairman, does he have the right to record what we are doing here? He told me “you cannot record what we are doing here”.He further stated, ” the Secretary of this Panel is writing everything “. Hmmm, I was shocked- Forgery in the Council Chambers of the University of Uyo?A Public Institution funded by the Federal Republic of Nigeria?
I left and immediately wrote to the Vice Chancellor of UNIUYO stating among other things ” This letter without reference number and logo is a deliberate act by the University of Uyo. Any invitation or meeting without a Reference Number and Official Logo of the University of Uyo as a Public Institution is null and void”. It is almost a year now, the University of Uyo has been silent about this letter and what transpired in the Council Chambers on 14th August 2018. For their information, UNIUYO is a Public Institution and open to investigation by security agencies. Lastly, you can NEVER fight and win God.HE defeated the Senate of UNIUYO, the Professors and turned their wisdom to foolishness.
