“We are pleading to the NTI to let us know where we are and how we are going to get our results,” she added.

“We are still investigating the identity of Mrs Rabiat Sideeq, one of the graduates because we could not find her name on our register, either as a student or staff member. If she has other details that will help the Institute identify her, please we are waiting.
