Victor Koreyo, a lecturer at the Department of Ceramics and Glass Technology, Akanu Ibiam Federal Polytechnic, Unwana, Afikpo, Ebonyi State has declared his intention to renounce his Nigerian citizenship for what he called social injustice.
In a letter to President Buhari and made available to journalists in Abuja yesterday, he said he was demoted for a period of eight years by the management of the institution and urged the President to endorse his request.

Koreyo, from Nassarawa state, said a directive was given by the Federal Government in 2007 directing all lecturers to produce additional qualification relevant to the job they do.
Against that background, the 7th Governing Council of the institution gave Koreyo two years to produce a foreign institution master degree in Ceramic Science and Engineering or he would be dismissed from service.
He said that the management of the polytechnic refused to communicate the information to him in written.
He alleged that since 2010 till date, the institutions had refused to approve his application for staff development opportunity because the Igbo constituted principal officers in the school.
Koreyo also said that several communications to the institution from the Head of Service of the Federation (HOSF), Attorney General of the Federation (AGF), Servicom and host of others, on the issue was in his favour for reinstatement.
He also accused the ministry of Education for allegedly writing a counter-directive letter to the rector to disregard the government directives issued by the HOSF and AGF.
According to him, this is social injustice that is not in line with the 1999 constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.
Quote
“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 believe this peaceful action and step of honour will prevent the rector from killing me by premeditated frustration of my constitutional rights to social justice as the citizen of Nigeria.
“I have nursed this feeling of suicide to end these eight years of frustration by the Rector and officials of the Akani Ibiam Polytechnic division of tertiary education department of the Federal Ministry of Education.
“And have decided 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,”
he said.

Is it a crime to ask you to get a maters degree as a lecturer to lecture ND and HND students? Abeg shift go one corner and stop this ranting.

its still unclear what happened, seems like he wanted to do the masters but the School forbade him from further self development, if that is the case then he could win in court, if he already started masters. but the court knows better.
