….provost fingered violating Union acts against the overall internet of union members
Sources with a reliable slug of information tipped the Management of TG NEWS (The General News) of Sex scandals, Exams malpractices, and admissions racketeering as escapades rocking Adamawa State College of Nursing, Yola under the administration of Mrs. Lami Aminu as the provost.
An investigation by TG NEWS revealed that the Provost of the institution (Nursing college), Mrs. Lami Aminu, Chairperson of the trade union in Adamawa state and is spearheading the affairs of the National Association of Nigerian Nurses and midwives (NANNW) is occupying the office illegally as alleged by some members of the union who does not want their names in print for fear of victimization.
On sundry evidence made available to this medium revealed that the trade union action is wary of the current position of Lami, holding two positions at a time (Provost college of Nursing and Chairperson of NANNW.
A careful look at Chapter 14 of the trade union act cap T14, (3,4) by TG NEWS has denied the provost the right of holding two positions at a time. The act stated as follows:
“No staff recognized as a projection of management within the management structure of any organization shall be a member of or hold office in a trade union (whether or not the members of that trade union are workers of a rank junior, equal or higher than his own) if such membership or of the holding of such office in the trade union will lead to a conflict of his loyalties to either the union or to the organization.
“For subsection (3) of this section, a person may be recognized as a projection of management within a management structure if his status, authority, powers, duties, and accountability which are reflected in his conditions of service are such as normally inhere in a person exercising executive authority (whether or not delegated) within the organization concerned.”
The Investigations by TG NEWS also revealed shocking stories of vindictiveness to some other staffs of the college by the college provost.
The case of one Julius Jefferson who was on annual leave suspended by the Provost when visited his place of work unannounced was one of the examples this medium unraveled among many others.
Audio, print, and electronics evidence made available to TG NEWS has revealed that sexual scandals under the watch of the Provost by one Kadama Birgamus, a lecturer in the college is going without stiff disciplinary measures given.
Kadama is said to be a hitman in carrying out exams malpractices, admissions racketeering is going on unabated, the criminal attitudes being displayed by the young lecturer is making many people in the state pointing on accusing fingers on the provost of downplaying the case after instituting a disciplinary committee.
During one of the meetings by the disciplinary committee under the chairmanship of one Mallam Abubakar Hamman TG NEWS gathered had the provost in attendance, Kadamas tongue-lashed the committee over his invitation to clear the allegations against his sexual involvement with one Sarah Yakubu and the provost couldn’t chastise him or halt him from calling the committee members all sort of unprintable names.
In leaked audio between Kadamas and Sarah, the duo engaged in a long conversation after their encounter with the disciplinary committee over the sex scandals revealed that it is a consented relationship their having.
Kadamas in the audio said their sexuality is base on a mutual understanding, have been dating for a long period, and were confident to say it to the committee chairman, Mr. Hamman that is still having an affair with Sarah.
Veracious Sources Spoke to TG NEWS on condition of anonymity said Kadamas is getting away with anything bad is doing in the institutions at the backing of the provost. This our source said is rocking down the school to a mere place of social life, not an academic exercise.
Our informant accused Lami of turning deaf ear to the outrageous behavior of Kadamas, a sexually harassed lecturer because is her errand Boy in the school who is loyal to her and belongs to a group answerable to the bidding of the provost.
In audio evidence at the disposal of TG NEWS also accused Birgamus of admission racketeering, collecting 150,000, to 300,000 naira for a particular admission letter. This is an issue this medium understood is making headway in the institution that admissions are only for the cash and carry not for the deserved.
Efforts to speak to the institution authority on the matter, TG NEWS on a telephone call contacted the Image maker of the college who is the information officer, Mallam Bashir Mohammed simply said:
“I’m not competent to comment on this matter, you can contact the Provost, she can give you all the details you need.”
Countless calls were made to the Provost of the college yesterday evening (Sunday) but her phone was saying “saying switched) to all her lines tried (08036248249,07082332289) I believe to be MTN and airtel numbers.
After much trial with no avail, an SMS was sent reading thus:
“Please Ma, can we talk? My name is Tom Garba, a journalist. It’s concerning the happenings in your school.”
Over twenty-four hours of waiting and no response or feedback from her, calls were later put through her lines and ringing with no one answering.
At one point the call will be on waiting but yet no one will return all the missed calls.
Our correspondent made further efforts and contacted Mr. Kadamas of who he said is not aware of anything like that but I can as while go on contacting the provost or any of the school management officers for more information.
TG NEWS is giving this report in parts, the many unraveling stories coming from the Adamawa state college of nursing will lead to other astonishing stories for the general public interest.
The view of others however suggested that the institution has lost out its moral values and its academic excellence that something urgent has to be done to salvage the situation.
Concerned citizens Called on Governor Ahmadu Umaru Fintiri to urgently do something fast about it to save the institution to fulfil his campaign promises which he promised to provide better health services to the people of the state.
