University Of Nigeria Graduate Threatens N100million Lawsuit After School Used Matric Number To Mobilise Another Student For Youth Service
A graduate of the University of Nigeria, Nsukka, Ogunbamowo Damilola, is set to sue the institution after discovering that her matriculation number was used to mobilise another student of the institution for the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) programme.
In a petition obtained by SaharaReporters, the student, a graduate of the department of Mathematics Education from the institution’s affiliate, Yaba College of Technology Satellite Campus, completed her course work in December 2018.
However, while her colleagues were mobilised for NYSC in 2019, she was not accorded similar treatment in spite of having no carry-overs at the time.
The petition initiated by the Yakubu Eleto chambers further stated that when she demanded to be sent for NYSC, the school authorities informed her that her Matric No; F/BS/14/3880001 was used by someone else for NYSC.
The chambers had since requested that the institution to immediately deploy its client for NYSC.
In the petition, the graduate also demanded the sum of N100million as damages, citing the negligent transfer of her Matric number to a third party to use for NYSC.
