Thaddeus Ifeanyi, a 31-year-old graduate of Sociology from the Delta State University, Abraka. Matriculation Number FSS/10/11/183959. He graduated in the 2013/2014 academic session. He said the University claimed that he graduated with less than 3.0 CGPA (Cumulative Grade Point Average), which is Second Class Lower, but he strongly believe that he graduated with Second Class Upper Division.
He stated ,My grudge with the university is that I strongly believe that there was an error in the computation of my CGPA. I am not convinced that the result they gave me is correct, but all my efforts to get it corrected have proved abortive.
Uramah media further asked him why he feels that there’s a miscomputation of his result?
I kept a record of my exam results for each semester from 100 Level to my final year.From your on calculation, what CGPA were you expecting?By my own I can’t graduate with second class lower,DELSU should recalculate my CGPA –31-year-old Alumnus, Ifeanyi, it was 3.57 above. I expected at least Second Class Upper Division because I studied for it. And this is why I am calling on the general public and men of goodwill to speak up for me.Having realised that the university was not ready to listen to me, I approached the Legal Aid Council of Nigeria, Asaba and presented my complaint. On February 22, 2018, the Legal Aid Council of Nigeria promptly wrote to the Vice-Chancellor but the letter was never replied. A reminder had to be sent to the VC after some time. The university then called for my exam scripts and sent them for remarking. But after the remarking was done, the university didn’t communicate to me on the outcome; instead, they issued me a warning letter.On September 30, 2019, I wrote a letter to the Speaker of the Delta State House of Assembly and on November 12, 2019, I wrote to the Delta State Commissioner for Higher Education, calling for assistance but the ministry said it was an internal affair of the university and directed me to the VC.On December 10, 2019, I wrote a letter to the new VC, giving him a summary of the issue and appealed to him to wade into the matter. I got a reply on January 3, 2020, but it was not on the university’s letterhead and it was not stamped.When I approached the Register’s office with the letter, they denied that it was not from them. They asked me to write another letter. I did and submitted the letter on February 28, 2020. The university replied with a letter dated March 16, 2020, but I received it on September 2020 because of the COVID-19 pandemic. They stated that they had investigated my case and that my class of degree remained Second Class Lower Division and that the matter was closed. The search for justice has been associated with anguish, anxiety, depression and insomnia. I don’t know what it will cause me next. This thing is seriously affecting me. I have considered committing suicide; it is the thought of my parents that is stopping me A professor in the department once told me that because I was fighting lecturers for my result, I would not be able to do my master’s as none of them would reference me and my academic transcripts would not be released.I feel really shortchanged. I have written to Governor Ifeanyi Okowa, begging him to ask the university to produce my 400 Level exam scripts. That’s all I’m asking.
