    Nice one Dino !

    I don’t know the premises of your argument but,( now that you have taken a path of justice) you will have a lot of documents to present in court. Original certificate (s) and also justify the contents of your CV.

    The solution is simple for Dino, just present your certificates. And we wont mind seeing the pictures on social media too. The moral for me in all this is- personal and professional integrity should be lived by from an early age. Imagine the embarrassment, your old classmates remembering you for stealing as their departmental president.

    It reminds me of our class rep from uni who would steal money paid to him for photocopies or things. Himself and some others also stole money for our year book. This was a large class of 100 people. Fast forward to 10 years later, a reunion is in the works and a few of us can’t forget what happened to our money. It would be foolishness to imagine giving such people ur money with their half-assed apology.

When lecturer asked him to produce the names of people who paid him he wrote the names of his friends who didn’t even pay a dime as the people who paid thats how I wrote that course as carry over. His dad died after uni, assistant course rep started asking us to make contribution I just kept calm he was forming vex that nobody came for his father’s burial. Karma is always served ??

    Dino need not bother himself.just show photocopy of your certificate to prove your integrity pending when court will see it as exhibit.Okun people are known for academic integrity some years will be a lesson to okun people to go back to history of upholding and respect for academic integrity before voting anybody.Inec should also be blamed for failing to be thorough in the discharge of their duty.nevertheless all this disrespect for honesty, academic integrity crept between 1980 and 1983 and was further boosted during the era of Gen Babaginda as head of state.Truth is always bitter.The same during president Jonathan.Any country that does not get it right in Education will always be in the situation we found ourselves.The minister of education, jamb registrar has quite a lot to do to get Nigeria back to era of worthiness in character and learning. We thank Prof ojerinde for the cbt examinations and the minister of education for cancellation of post utme which became object of manipulations by some citadels of knowledge through their accolades There is no reason why jamb registrar should not get it right the greatest part of the hurdles had been crossed by Prof ojerinde.
    Waec or Neco should also get it right to have zero tolerance fraud examinations.Let any school that aid and abet exams malpractices be closed for five years or more and such supervisor be heavily punished.Any country that does not have respect or value for academic integrity or hard work will always have crisis such like we have found ourselves.
