Recall that the university had on 31st December, 2020, constituted a high-powered committee, consisting of the University Senate members, to thoroughly investigate the allegation as presented in an anonymous petition to the Vice-Chancellor on 17th December, 2020.
Auwalu Umar, Director, Public Affairs Directorate, Ahmadu Bello University, Zaria, in a statement, stated that the eight-member committee headed by Prof. Shehu Abubakar Akuyam, Dean, Faculty of Allied Health Sciences, also discovered that based on the committee’s phone conversation with Shafa’atu Abdullahi, she alleged that she did not know anything about the purported statement of result and NYSC mobilisation.
The statement further explained that the investigation recorded from the Department of Physics, Faculty of Physical Sciences and Academic Affairs Department showed that Shafa’atu Abdullahi (Reg. No. U15PY2014) was admitted into the University in the 2015/2016 academic session at 200 level.
It also explained that she was withdrawn from the university at the end of 2016/2017 academic session due to poor academic performance.
According to the statement, the committee also established that the statement of result in question was not officially issued by ABU, stressing that Shafa’atu Abdullahi was not presented to the NYSC directorate for mobilisation for the mandatory one-year national youth service.
The statement stated that findings by the committee showed that the copy of the NYSC Green Card/Data Card as presented by the petitioners as the profile of Shafa’atu Abdullahi was cloned and looked different from the real NYSC version in both presentation and design.
The NYSC Directorate explained that Abdullahi had not been mobilised and registered by the NYSC in the 2020 Batch ‘B’ service year.
The committee, therefore, submitted its report to the Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Kabiru Bala, on 26th July, 2021. The Vice-Chancellor, expressed his gratitude to members of the committee for a “thorough investigation” into the allegation.
