As the prestigious institution, Olabisi Onabanjo University completed its screening weeks ago, it's not novel seeing idolent and fraudulent minds parading around to hoodwink unsuspecting aspirants.
It is no lie to state that securing admission in Nigeria is anything but easy. Yet, it is a sacred truth that some unscrupulous individuals are using that as an avenue to dupe aspirants that are so desperate for admission.
Admission is free in OOU. The school does not seek money from anyone to facilitate admission. Even as published on the school website, the school has no agent that help in getting funds from individuals to facilitate admission.
Dear aspirants, please, never you pay huge money to ghost men that claim to dine and wine with the Vice Chancellor. They are fraudsters. If you pay huge amount and you are not later admitted, you've only taken avoidable risk.
I've seen a friend that paid exorbitant amount to an "agent" that made claims amidst being the father of the Registrar and was later denied admission. Just last week, an aspirant called me and reported a Pastor who claims to work at The Admin block. The Pastor promised to facilitate her admission should she pay #400,000. After serious negotiations between the aspirant's parents and the Pastor, the "administrative charge" was billed down to #250,000. She told me she's paying the money the next day. Let me withhold the pastor's name, as pleaded by the aspirant.
I got uncontrollably livid. "How would you charge such huge amount for a less competitive course? It is nothing but fraud", I thundered. These are thieving means.
This is just one in a million cases of fraudulence practices during this critical time.
A word is enough for the wise.Never you fall for scam. May you never fill the big basket with water during harmattan.
I wish you the very best.
Please share with others. Save a soul!
