Final Year UNIZIK Student Considers Suicide


A final year student of the University of Nnamdi Azikwe (UNIZIK), is contemplating suicide after his HOD from the Physics department allegedly hinders his graduation.
The story was made available to an online platform by his friend on Wednesday. According to her friend, Austin Mapka (real name) with the reg number 2009244618 in Nnamdi Azikiwe University, Awka was transferred from an engineering department into the Department of physics and Industrial physics due to poor run of results, which is completely legal by the school rules and regulations.
”In his final year he was elected the president of his department, at this point his problem with the HOD started. She tormented him day and night threatening to make him spend extra years every time he questions her actions concerning the students of the department,” the friend noted.
The letter also stated that after Austin completed his program with a CGPA of 4.02, he was told that he is not eligible to graduate due to the carry overs he had in engineering before transferring.
Reports gathered that it is up to 4 months and nothing has been done to rectify the issue and no decision or directive has been made on the matter.
”Registrar of the University who is supposed to decide in his case knows that’s there is no need to rewrite those courses as it was in engineering department that he failed the said courses, the failed courses isn’t needed or connected to his present department, and more over he repeated a year when he got into physics department and was given fresh courses to write by the department of which he passed all of them, but he can’t act on it because the HOD knows a few people at the top that can stall this case.”
The students, however, urged the University management to do the needful, ”as I am talking to you my friend is at a breaking point and thinking of committing suicide and I know he can do such because I know how this issue has gotten to him,” the friend added.
