College of Agriculture: The Alumni Association of Bauchi State College of Agriculture has called on the State government to probe allegations of fake results and certificate racketeering in the college.
There were also allegations of collection of bribes to issue admissions to unqualified candidates earlier levelled against the management of the institution by the Academic Staff Union of Polytechnic (ASUP) recently.
Addressing journalists in Bauchi over the weekend, the president of the association, Salisu Yayaji and his Secretary General Umar Sanda Umar said that their call to the government was to help safeguard the image of the institution.
“Since its establishment in 1971, we are all aware that the college is considered as one of the best Agricultural institution in Nigeria. All these achievements were as a result of good management from the then leaders of the institution,” he said.
According to him, the association had attempted to meet with the management of the college on the issue on two occasions but to no avail.
“We appealled to the Bauchi State Government to appoint a high-powered Committee to investigate the allegations of giving out fake results and other allegations levelled against the management to enable the Government take appropriate measure against all perpetrators to serve as deterrence to others”, he said.
It would be recalled that the ASUP chapter of the college had accused the Provost, Registrar and Bursar of the college of giving out statements of results to students with carry-overs or concessions by taking bribes.
However, the management of the institution declined comment on the matter when contacted.
