FUTO students cry to JAMB, VC over inability to go for NYSC.
*Former VC, Francis Eze fingered
A clarion call has been made to the management of Joint Admissions And Matriculation Board, (JAMB), Owerri branch by students of Federal University of Technology Owerri, (FUTO), who graduated since the year 2017/2018 upwards
over alleged failure to upload their Regularization Data necessary to facilitate their participation in the Nation Youths Service Corp, (NYSC).
It would be recalled that the admission body had introduced the ‘REGULARIZATION PROCESS’ in the recent past to get Admission Letters, which is needed for NYSC mobilization.
However, Campus Life reporter told Famousreporters.com that in JAMB office Owerri, “it is only one staff that is assigned the duties of uploading students data to JAMB website for onward processing/printing of such letters.
According to Campus Life reporter who has been monitoring the said insensitivity/poor service delivery recently, “no day passes by without thousands of students besieging JAMB office Owerri to get this letters to no avail.One Miss Uju a graduate of Dental Technology FUTO said”Since 2018 we graduated none of my course mates have been mobilized for NYSC because of Regularization.
Continuing, the source said: “The delay first started with our immediate Vice Chancellor Prof. Francis Eze who could not send our data to JAMB earlier until now we got a female VC Prof.Nnenna OTI who when we besieged her office early July 2021,compiled and sent our names to Owerri JAMB office that’s mandated to do the uploading to national office where the final letter needed will be processed. But my thrice visit here shows that nothing has been done so far owing to the fact that only one staff is assigned uploading the data of students from my school, IMSU, ALVAN, POLYNEK, IMO POLY etc,it is high wickedness and unfortunate of JAMB. So many of us since after graduation have reached the age 30 and cannot serve again,some have lost jobs which requires NYSC and some have traveled oversees forgetting totally about mandatory one year NYSC,we Futoites are mostly affected”.
Similarly, another FUTO graduate from Building Technology who spoke anonymously said:
“I come here every six months since 2019 to see updates as regards my Regularization Letter, but all to no avail. I plead with our new female VC to help us in her motherly care talk to this JAMB people to process this letter for us,am almost tired.
Corroborating, a staff of JAMB, Owerri office regretted that “the fault is from the director here who only assigned one staff to be doing the uploading work.”
