This may not come as a surprise to many who are aware of the dwindling state of education in Nigeria especially admission process in some schools.
Disturbing reports have revealed that three graduates of a State University in the Southeast among the current batch of National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) members just out of orientation camps have been rejected from their places of primary assignment for inability to defend their degrees.
It was reported that one of the corps members identified as Jane could not write figures one to 10 in words; it was also noted that she could not write three states and their capitals.
She could not provide the names of two major rivers in Nigeria, just as she failed to name three countries that share border with Nigeria.
In shock the management confirmed that one of the corps members was unable to fill the registration form correctly. He also had the inability to read and write, talk more of teaching the nursery pupil that were assigned in his care.
The corps members have been unable to defend their certificates, hence further investigations have commenced place to ascertain how they obtained their degree from the institution. In the mean time, one of the corps members was sent to a bakery to continue his service.
