YABATECH Recalls "Graduate" From NYSC Camp

The management of Yaba College of Technology (YABATECH) has recalled a graduate of the College, Quadri Adewale Fasasi, from the National Youth Service Corp (NYSC).

Fasasi was alleged to have been involved in examinations fraud. 

He and another student had had outstanding cases pending. It was learnt that Fasasi was wrongly cleared for national service by the College and based on a petition, the management wrote to the Director General of NYSC, Abuja, demanding for the his recall.

The letter dated July 19, 2017 and signed by Deputy Registrar, Mrs. T.A. Obadimu, reads:
"Mr. Fasasi has a pending academic case in the college. He was wrongly listed on the graduand list for 2014/2015 academic year."

Fasasi, Higher Diploma student in Accountancy department with matriculation F/HD/12/3610016 and with call letter number NYSC/YCT 10016/373713, Daily Sun gathered, was involved in exam malpractice with another student. He was said to have used his connection to get clearance.

Fasasi, who is also a staff of the College and another student faced the Students Investigations Exam Committee and were found guilty. The panel had recommended that both should repeat HND II.

A source told Daily Sun that, "Rather than repeat HND II, he (Fasasi) used his connection as a staff and got cleared for NYSC to Ondo State. The other student found out and petitioned the management thus prompting the recall of Fasasi from NYSC."
