The Student Union Government (SUG) of the Federal Polytechnic, Nekede, Imo State, has denied knowing a young lady, now identified as Sharon Ogechi Okoroafor, who has been trending on social media for claims that she just graduated from the institution through God’s grace and the help of her private part.
Speaking in a viral TikTok video, Monday, the young girl, who hails from Ngor Okpala Local Government Area of Imo State, expressed her joy at successfully defending her project. Her exact words were: ‘Omo, today is the final day. Mehn! Nekede bye-bye. This Nekede stress, it ends today. Nekede stress ends today.Finally, I’m now a graduate of Federal Polytechnic, Nekede. It can only be God ooo. It can only be God and my p*ssy.’
The management of the Federal Polytechnic, Nekede has begun to probe Sharon Ogechi Okoroafor over the claims made by her, describing it as unacceptable and preposterous. The SUG has however said that she is not a student of the institution. They stated that she does not have a matriculation number or a project written by her or even a research supervisor that proves that she has graduated from the institution.
A statement by the SUG on the matter reads: ‘We have noted with grave concern a viral video of a lady claiming to be a student of Federal Polytechnic Nekede, our great institution and noble alma mater’, said the SUG.
‘We have conducted a background check on the said student who goes by the name, Sharon Ogechi Okoroafor from Ngor-Okpala LGA of Imo State. We wish to state, thus, that the Student Union Government views this video as sacrilegious and condemnable.
‘Also, the said Sharon is not a bonafide student of the Federal Polytechnic Nekede because she has no Registration (Matriculation) Number. She also has no project or research supervisor to show she has graduated.’
‘Indeed, the purported student never joined others to do the defense which brought them to school because she had no work to defend. In fact, reports have it that she only came to take valedictory photos with her so-called coursemates.’
‘Anyone can gatecrash in lectures but only a student who has been duly registered and screened by the institution is a genuine student.’
‘Our institution is a reputable brand across the nation, having been rated best-performing polytechnic, and our Rector as best Rector five times. It is the same institution that has produced great minds and leaders. We can therefore not allow the name of our great institution to be taken to the mud by the accusations of a base character’.
They advised the young lady in question to henceforth, put an end to her fraudulent claims of being a student of the esteemed Federal Polytechnic, Nekede, having already caused great damage to the psyche of both students of the institution and other Nigerian students nationwide .
