Parents whose children chose Aflon Digital Institute on the list of the joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB) to pursue an Ordinary National Diploma (OND) in digital multimedia technology are angry with the institute for alleged educational fraud.

Many of the parents whose children and wards chose the institute were disappointed when they got to the school’s premises only to be told that there is no such course – even that the school is not a tertiary institute that should have been on the JAMB list.

Aflon Digital Institute, located along the Nigeria Customs Service Barracks in Kuje Area Council of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Abuja, according to information reaching us, offers only nursery, primary and secondary educational facilities. It was discovered from the website of the institute that students from Senior Secondary Certificate (SSC) levels, each pay a total of over N600,000 per annum.

Information on the website is completely silent on the issue of OND or any form of higher educational level other than the fact that it has vocational section without stating what certificate it offers after student might have attended such vocational education.

A parent who traveled with his son from Ibadan, and who gave his name simply as Adebayo, expressed disappointment that the school feigned ignorant of the damage it is doing to students who have the thirst for multimedia technology education and gladly chose the school.

“Such students, like my own, come to the school only to find out that it is just a secondary education institute. One wonders how it managed to get to the JAMB brochure thereby confusing parents and their ambitious children,” he said.

Another parent, who was advised by the principal of the school to seek admission in other higher institution, expressed surprise that an Institute that prides itself as tertiary one would feel comfortable turning away students that had gone for admission, based on their conviction that the school is real, since it is there on JAMB list. 

Many other parents expressed similar sentiment over the Institute’s deceptive posture regarding what it is not and called on the federal ministry of education to investigate its activities. Most of such parents travel from far distances only to go back disappointed.

However, the Proprietor and Executive Director of Aflon Schools, Dr. Akin Fapohunda, said via sms that the OND programme on Digital Multimedia Technology has since been discontinued because it was not viable.

“The programme was discontinued because we discovered that only those who fail want to do it. Every good student wants university at all costs. So to us, it is a waste of time,” he said.

When his attention was drawn to the fact that it is still on the JAMB list, as a result of which many students chose it for their higher educational pursuit, Dr. Fapohunda responded by saying that he wrote to the JAMB and the NBTE (National Board for Technical Education) to de-list the Institute from their list, but had not done so.

“I wrote to JAMB and NBTE but the two bodies are delinquent. Don’t blame me,” he stated.
