Listen to article

The management of Nnamdi Azikiwe University, Awka, Anambra State, has announced the suspension of a member of staff of the institution, Nwafor Ogbonnaya Nwesuzor, for alleged certificate forgery.

The Eastern Updates gathered that Nwafor allegedly forged his degree and the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) exemption certificate to secure employment in the university.

But when Nwafor wrote to the institution to ask to have his degree changed, the alleged bubble popped.

The special adviser to the vice chancellor on Public Relations and Special Duties, Dr Emmanuel Ojukwu, disclosed this in a statement made available to Nigerian Tribune in Awka.

Ojukwu said Nwafor had been suspended from the service of the university for six months while his case will undergo other processes before final decision.

The statement reads in part, ‘The vice chancellor of Nnamdi Azikiwe University, Awka, Professor Charles Okechukwu Esimone, has approved the immediate suspension of Nwafor Osborne Ogbonnaya (Nwafor Ogbonnaya Nwesuzor) over allegations of presentation of forged and fake degree result to the University.

‘In a bid to secure employment in Nnamdi Azikiwe University, Nwafor Osborne Ogbonnaya whose real name is Nwafor Ogbonnaya Nwesuzor abandoned his undergraduate programme and forged the university statement of result and a letter of exclusion from the National Youth Service Corp (NYSC).

‘He later went ahead to complete, his degree programme.

‘The whole scenario emanated when Mr Nwafor Osborne Ogbonnaya wrote to the University requesting to change his degree result.

‘The new result he submitted bears a different name, Nwafor Ogbonnaya Nwesuzor and a different class of degree and this resulted in suspicion.

‘Upon further investigation, it was discovered that this staff forged his degree result and letter of exclusion from the NYSC based on the obvious disparity between the documents he submitted originally and the new documents he was trying to substitute.

‘The class of degree in both results presented varies; the forged statement of result with the name Nwafor Osborne Ogbonnaya bears second class lower division while the original result with the name Nwafor Ogbonnaya Nwesuzor bears third class.

‘In following due process, the vice chancellor in exercising his powers based on the university rules and regulation approved his immediate suspension from the employment of the University for six months while his case undergoes other processes in the University before final disposal action,’ Ojukwu added.
