OrderPaperToday- Lagos State House of Assembly has ordered the Provost of Michael Otedola College of Education to release the results of its students in Ijora Badia Centre for the 2011/2012 academic session.

According to a petition titled: “Letter of Assistance On Our Long-Time Awaiting Result From Michael Otedola College of Primary Education,” the aggrieved students of the centre alleged that they have not received their statement of results,¬† despite submitting their exams scripts to the then co-ordinator of the centre, Mr. Wale, who notified them of the readiness of their results.

The students, who said they started their programme in 2008/2009, expressed surprise that despite calls for their results, they have got no response from the College of Education.

Chairman of the House Education Committee Lanre Ogunyemi who presented the report said that the school’s Director of the Programme, Dr. Olaleye G.O told the committee that the college ran a centralised system and that the petition submitted by the students was as a result of misinformation and poor orientation.

He reportedly told the Committee that the academic session 2011/2012 in question was not concluded in 2012, but in the first quarter of 2014 contrary to the normal academic calendar due to non-compliance by the co-ordinator and students, who did not meet the standards and requirements set by the institution.

The Committee stated that Olaleye emphasised that the results are ready, but that the College would take extra caution in ensuring that results are released to only eligible students, that is, those who have met the conditions stated by the school.

The House subsequently accepted the recommendations of the committee that the Centre’s Co-ordinator should liase with the Director of Part-Time Studies for release of results after proper documentation.

It was also recommended that the students should fulfill all necessary pre-requisites as stipulated by the College in order to access their results and that the communication gap between the College and its affiliated centres should be bridged.

The Assembly also directed that the College should centralize the method of payment of fees from the various centres in order to forestall cases of misappropriation/embezzlement of funds in the future.
