In a letter made available to Trojan News Media Correspondent in Ekpoma, by one of the overall best students who to ought to have benefited from the award of excellence and financial reward revealed that the money was collected from the system and shared amongst themselves with the approval of the then Acting Registrar of the Institution, Mr. Edward U.
