FUTO TRANSCRIPT PROCESSING SYSTEM: A THUG OF WAR GAME
The prestigious Federal University of Technology Owerri which proudly stands as the Alma Mater of many great citizens resident in Nigeria and abroad has over time begin to decline in the quality of service they deliver to their students and alumni in general. As a university of technology and a center of excellence at that, it is expected that the quality of service delivered will be matchless and second to none.
Sadly, it is no longer that way. Most especially, the Records and Statistics Unit, where the academic transcript of alumni are been processed. The fact that the quest for knowledge never ends, the need to continue acquiring knowledge is on the increase. Graduates press harder to obtain their Masters’ degree, while masters’ degree holders press harder to acquire their PhD. As a result of that, the need for academic transcript has increased immensely. Seeing that for you to enroll into a higher level of programme, the transcript of the passed level is demanded. This has made the Records and Statistics department of the Federal University of Technology Owerri highly flooded with alumni who come to process their transcript.
Sadly, overtime, the transcript processing system of the Federal University of Technology Owerri has become a night mare and a thug of war game. It now takes a very long period of time to acquire your academic transcript. Because of the time it takes, many students has lost their admissions because they were not able to provide their transcript as at when due.
In FUTO, the processes involved in acquiring an academic transcript are summarized in these steps;
Register on the website at www.tps.futo.edu.ng
Make your payment
Submit your printout to your schedule officer of your department in the records and statistics unit.
These are the steps the students have to take. The rest will be the responsibility of the unit. The schedule officer compiles your result and forwards them to the Secretary who in turn minutes it for typing. In the end, the coordinator of the unit will approve and sign then the student will collect. Sadly, the time it takes for this process to be completed has become something else. There are lots of transcript applications that have lingered for more than 6 months.
What then is the issue? The unit complains of poor power supply which prevents them from typing those transcripts. But then, what does it actually cost for a Federal University of Technology which is popularly known as the Centre of Excellence to supply light to a sensitive unit as this. The cost of applying for a local transcript in the Federal University of Technology Owerri (FUTO) is ₦17,500 while the cost of applying for international transcript varies from ₦30,000-₦35,000 depending on the destination. Then imagine after paying such a heavy amount of money, you still wait for as long as unexpected to receive the same transcript you paid for. Then the only reason that will be provided to you is that there is no light to power the computers. This is seriously a frustrating process because many students have lost their admissions while waiting for their transcript to be ready. But then, processing and preparing a transcript could take as short as two weeks for a center of excellence, where efficiency and effectiveness is the watchword.
We therefore (the Alumni of the Federal University of Technology Owerri), use this medium to call on the Minister of Education, Minister of state for education and the Governing council to look into this matter and call the outgoing vice chancellor to order so that he can carefully look into this issue before the expiration of his tenure.

Mediocrity and ineptitude thrive in Nigeria. Meanwhile, the right phrase is TUG of war, tug in this case meaning to pull at something.
