VC signs 40,000 certificates for 1 decade of students
Examination malpractice is dying a natural death at UNIMAID after the introduction of electronic examination by the institution's management
According to reports, Njodi who resumed as Vice Chancellor of the North Eastern University on the 3rd of June 2014, inherited 10 decades of unsigned certificates.
An unnamed source quoted in several reports said "the backlog stretches as far back as one decade" and has left many graduates stranded in the labour market.
An academic staff quoted by Leadership said Prof Njodi has unified the university's once-chaotic academic calendar.
"Do you know that before the arrival of Prof Njodi as VC, our graduates could not collect their hard-earned certificates even after many years of graduation?
"But Njodi has reversed all that rot.
"He has signed so many certificates: I know, because some of my former students visited me after collecting their precious certificates."
Members of the university community are hopeful that the Vice Chancellor will continue running the institution with such efficiency.
