Oludare Alaba, a graduate of Ladoke Akintola University of Technology (LAUTECH), Ogbomoso, returned his diploma and demanded a reimbursement of his tuition. He claims he did this since the degree had no bearing on his life.
The graduate of Agricultural Extension and Rural Development claimed that his suffering was made worse by his failure to provide for his wife and children’s needs as well as those of his 90-year-old father, who had taken out a loan to pay for his education.
Despite being a graduate, Oludare, who claimed to be an award-winning entertainer, grew disillusioned with his inability to lead a fulfilling life.
He added that he is tempted to perform money rituals but resists doing so.
Oludare said: “I returned the certificate because it has no impact on my existence. I asked for a refund of the fees paid in school so I can use it to build my talent and live a meaningful life.
“I am an entertainer and even won the MTN talent hunt award during my service year in 2016.
“I have continued to struggle in life such that the opportunities I am getting is to do money rituals but I don’t want to do such. I want to be useful to Nigeria, my family, myself and to God.
“I am married with two kids; my dad is 90 years old, but I continue to borrow money from him rather than give him. He told me that he took loans to fund my education and hasn’t refunded it and cannot continue to borrow money to give me.
“I ask for help in any form. I want to pursue my entertainment career. I don’t want my career wasted.”
