University Of Nigeria Graduate Sues School For N100m


A student of the University of Nigeria, Nsukka, has decided to sue her institution for using her matriculation number to mobilize another student for the National Youth Service Corps(NYSC).
The student identified as Ogunbamowo Damilola sued the institution after discovering that her Matric No was used to mobilize another student for NYSC.

Ogunbamowo who is a graduate of the department of Mathematics Education completed her studies in December 2018.
In 2019 her course mates were mobilized for NYSC but her name was missing from the list.

When she demanded an explanation from the school she was told that her matric number had been used to mobilize someone else.
In a petition obtained by Saharareporters, the graduate requested immediate deployment and demanded the sum of N100million as damages.
The petition reads: “The above subject matter refers. We are the solicitors to Ogunbamowo Damilola Abigail, a 2017/2018 graduate of Mathematics Education with Matric No: F/BS/14/3880001 (hereinafter referred to as “our clients”) and on whose instructions we hereby write this letter of demand.

“Our clients briefed us as follows; That she was offered admission on a full-time basis as could be deduced from her admission letter into Mathematics Education with the University of Nigeria, Nsukka, Yabatech Satellite Campus. The said course of study was completed in December 2018.

”It is our brief that our client successfully completed her course of study in the University of Nigeria, Nsukka, Yabatech Satellite Campus in flying colours and her name was cleared as not having any outstanding (Carryovers).
It is our further brief that our client’s co-graduates of the same Academic Session from other Departments and the domicile department of the University of Nigeria Nsukka, Yabatech Satellite Campus were mobilized in 2019 for National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) without according our client similar treatment.

“It is also our brief that when our client demanded to be sent to NYSC, the school authority rather came up with strange news by saying that our clients Matric No; F/BS/14/3880001 was used by someone else for NYSC.

“Regrettably, this development has left our client in a state of frustration, stagnation and dilemma, as she cannot gain employment in Nigeria without her NYSC discharge or exemption certificates (of which you are aware), after spending huge sums of money and wasting the vital years of her youthful life pursuing a career of her choice.
TAKE NOTICE therefore that we have our client’s authority to demand and we hereby demand that you send our client to NYSC without further delay because she was offered admission on a full-time basis deserving of NYSC and on the representation that her Matric No; F/BS/14/3880001 can’t be shared with anyone which is the standard all over the world, we are now emphatically demanding the sum of N100,000,000.00 (Hundred Million Naira) as damages suffered by our client by negligently transferring her Matric No: to a third party to use for NYSC.

“This is an act deliberately orchestrated to frustrate our client’s four years of devoted study in YABATECH, the trauma of wasted years and fraud perpetuated on her. TAKE FURTHER NOTICE that should you fail and/or neglect to heed our demand within Seven (7) days of the receipt of this letter, we shall have no other option than to perfect our client’s further instruction. Be properly guided.”
