Koereyo, an indigene of Nasarawa state says the Polytechnic management refused to approve his application for staff development opportunity because they are Igbo.

A lecturer at the Department of Ceramics and Glass Technology, Akanu Ibiam Federal Polytechnic, Victor Koreyo has threatened to renounce his citizenship over what he called social injustice.
In a letter to President Muhammadu Buhari, made available to the News Agency of Nigeria, Koreyo said he was demoted by the school management for eight years.

However, investigation shows that a directive was given by the federal government in 2007 asking lecturers to produce additional qualification relevant to the job they do.

According to NAN, the 7th Governing Council of the institution also gave Koreyo two years to produce a foreign institution-issued master’s degree in Ceramic Science and Engineering or he would be dismissed from service.

But Koreyo said the Polytechnic management refused to communicate the information to him in writing, alleging that the management since 2010 had refused to approve his application for staff development opportunity because the Igbo constituted principal officers in the school

The lecturer also said that several communications to the institution variously from the Head of Service of the Federation, Attorney General of the Federation, Servicom and a host of others, on the issue were in his favour for reinstatement.

The letter reads in part:
“I love to continue as citizen of this great nation on earth. But since I do not have the financial power or connection to challenge the rector to obey the Federal Government’s directives in my favour, I decided to take this peaceful action.

“I have decided that the renunciation of my citizenship by birth will be the best way to peacefully end my quest for social justice at the ministry of education and finally resign from Federal Public Service of Nigeria,”

Ministry of Education reacts
Meanwhile, a staff of the ministry of education told NAN, on condition of anonymity, that the ministry was already looking into the matter.

According to him, the matter is also before the newly constituted council of the institution.

He, therefore, urged Koreyo to be patient, as the new council would resolve the problem.
