National Teachers� Institute Kaduna, Revenue Centre

By Abdullahi Nathaniel

This is a wakeup call to the Ministry of Education that the National Teachers' Institute is fast becoming a revenue centre at the detriment of students. The NTI currently runs a PGDE programme by distance learning, this development is a good one as it affords working class people the opportunity to earn certificate while they go about their normal work.

But the problem is on how the NTI evaluates the performance of students (examination), the situation where because of #10,000 that is to be paid by students if they fail a course makes the body to mark the answer sheets of students anyhow without taking into cognizance the fact that many of those who embark in this programme strife to see that they pay the fees.

The last result released by the body (2013 first semester for PGDE) confirms the cry of many Nigerians that NTI is now interested in the failure of students just because of the #10,000 to be paid. I am not saying that students are not suppose to fail exams but when it becomes the order of the day that in a centre of about 135 students only 24 can be cleared of no carryover then questions should be asked if at all these students were properly taught or maybe the evaluation method adopted should be revisited.

Apart from the failure rate, the facilitators in these centres do complain of not being adequately remunerated despite the huge amount of money being paid and the influx of students. I see no reason why NTI should be paying PHD holders peanuts when the coordinators who do nothing get the elephant share.

Please this issue should be looked into before the purpose for which it was created is defeated.

The 2015 pgde students were forced to pay for tablet..It was so bad that they could not even register their school fees online unless they paid for the tablet and registered it first. Now almost half of the students are yet to get those same tablets despite having finished paying. Some finished payments as far back as July yet NTI is still talking not ready. The programme is almost over and I am afraid that they will not give the tablets again despite having collected the money.

MAMMAN ITOPA MUTALIB | 7/26/2017 2:01:00 PM
Without mincing words,I have come to conclusion that NTI programme in Nigeria is a mess.How can we explain a situation where I registered for PGDE programme and paid since march,2015 and uptill now,the 26th July 2017 I can not collect my first semester result .pls NTI release my result.NTI/PGDE/2015/14079,Futa centre,Akure,Ondo State.
MAMMAN ITOPA MUTALIB | 7/26/2017 2:11:00 PM
That I couldn't load the first semester pin on time before closing date after paying first semester tuition fees in the bank should not be a reason for sending carryover in all first semester courses.How on Earth,a student will pass all seven courses of second semester and fail all 12 courses of first semester without showing the score.I think NTI programme is illegal,a total disgrace to our country.
MAMMAN ITOPA MUTALIB | 7/26/2017 2:18:00 PM
The same programme that releases to us in 2015 tablet for 45000 and later crack.I had to pay 10000 again back to them to fix it. I can use it again now as it has start developing fault. I now hold faulty tablet without the result after all the rigorous lecture,assignment,test and Exam.NUC please come to my rescue.08131651228.
MAMMAN ITOPA MUTALIB | 7/26/2017 2:25:00 PM
How long does it take u guys to search for 12 courses Exam Script of Mamman Itopa mutalib,NTI/PGDE/2015/14079,first semester and coalate the score and send it down to Akure centre.
MAMMAN ITOPA MUTALIB | 7/26/2017 9:33:00 PM
NTI PGDE should be nullified in my own opinion.A programme that is holding peoples result. I have come to believe the words of NUC saying that NTI programme is illegal.

Zedef | 11/30/2017 1:49:00 PM
There’s a very rude and saucy Muslim lady at that NTI office in ogba, precisely Room 7. I went to collect my certificate from previous years and she said I had to produce my statement of result, which I didn’t come with. I then asked her if there are other documents I need to get so I can be adequately prepared when next I’m coming and she just started to rant that she’s not giving me any information that I should leave her alone and get out of the office that I should only return to her when I’m ready and I asked her again that I’m just asking for clarification of things to bring along and she gave me a response that she want talking to me. If you have been kept at s desk to perform a job why can’t you be of assistance to people rather than being a source of pain. She really needs to be removed if she can’t do her job. I’ve asked other colleges about her and they say she’s notorious at that ogba office. Quite a shame!!!
JOY | 12/1/2017 9:58:00 PM
I embarked on this pgde program hopping to get the result by April 2017 for a job but NTI have just frustrated all my plans now. I regret ever enrolling in that so called NTI.
