University Lecturers Allegedly Use Research Grant To Furnish Expensive Lifestyle..

Comrade Samson Chijioke Ugwoke, National President of Senior Staff Association of Nigerian Universities, SSANU, has accused those saddled with the administration of universities of gradually killing education through corruption.

The SSANU National President, who is the Chairman of Joint Action Committee, JAC, comprising National Association of Academic Technologists, NAAT, Non-Academic Staff Union of Universities and Educational Institutions, NASU, and the SSANU, said some university lecturers use research grant to buy big cars, build houses and drink beer, while little or nothing is done on research.

Ugwuoke said; "We have asked government to set up Visitation Panels to all the universities that are overdue, let them study what is happening in the universities and unravel the corruption taking place because they are collecting IGR and they account to nobody. We are not even talking about sex for marks, abuse of young girls and money for marks; when some graduating students make 2:1, some of them are not even in the country, some of them are doing prostitution in Italy but they are getting 2:1. When she comes back and sends a lorry load of bags of cement to the lecturer, she will be awarded ‘A’ in his course. So many unwholesome things are happening in the system.

Let them investigate the research allowances they get which they are using to buy big cars and building houses and a lot of other works are finished at the beer parlour. By 3 o’clock they are already drinking till 11pm, that is where they do the research. These are things we know and nobody is talking. They are at the staff club drinking beer till 10, 11 pm. Is that where they do the research? Let government investigate the research allowances that are given out in the universities”. The union leader pleaded with the National Assembly to wade into corruption in the university system so as to make the place a proper place for education.

  1. Na wa. Corruption everywhere even in Federal Ministry of finance

  2. If PBM fights this particular corruption, i will respect him till he leaves.

  3. What will your respect add to Nigeria Economy?

  4. Despicable lots. I guess it’s a lot worse now. While at Unijos, it wasn’t this bad. Wow!! People delivering bags of cement to lecturers building sites or homes. Pay for play. No wonder some of our high flyers with good grades can’t even perform eventually. Nothing upstairs. Hmmmmmmm!! The senate called upon sef us kwarupt.

  5. Why can't these JAC workers sort out their issues with Fed Govt without firing shots which are ridiculous & lack evidence at ASUU?? All unions in universities are important because they have unique roles. We all know that some lecturers are guilty of victimizing students & such lecturers should be fished out & dealt with appropriately but allegations of receiving bags of cement & misusing grants just because of earned allowance shows the extremely high level of ignorance of the JAC chairman cuz he clearly doesn't know the detailed phases (pre,during & post) of grants as well as the current level of awareness+whistleblowing of students & disciplinary measures of universities management to prevent such obvious atrocities. Besides, those who live in glass houses shouldn't throw stones because JAC members are also very corrupt, over-populating the staff numbers of universities (most are illegally employed by ethnic/indigenous compensations....the Fed Govt is even making plans to reduce their numbers drastically as recommended by the NUC, Ministry of Education & NEEDS assessment report) & obtain money fraudulently from students doing clearance, collecting transcripts, certificates etc.
