Nigerian students call for former coordinator to be reinstated.


Sharon Brathwaite


Yet another twist has developed in the saga involving the Nigerian students due to take up studies at the Barbados Community College (BCC).

They are now calling for the reinstatement of former coordinator Sharon Brathwaite, who was suspended from the post several weeks ago.

The students say they also remain dissatisfied with their accommodation at the Casa Grande Hotel in St Philip.

And they also want problems relating to food, computers and cell phones resolved prior to the commencement of classes at the BCC.

The grouses are outlined in a five-page joint statement issued by the attorney-at-law for the 66 students, Douglas Trotman, and R.E Guyson Mayers, the attorney-at-law for the Brathwaite.

In the document, the attorneys say Brathwaite has not misused $1 million from the Delta State Programme.

In fact, they have given assurances that the money could be traced.

“On studying Ms Brathwaite’s account, we are satisfied that the monies she received (US$758,515) and her legitimate expenditure or transfer of funds on the project and/or the direct instructions of Ms St Hill has been accounted for,” the statement said.

Additionally, they say she was defamed by numerous comments made on the matter

“The defamation laws of Barbados, in doing no more applying common sense, allow for the identification of a person whose character has been defamed, although that persons has not been named. We believe that Ms Brathwaite has suffered this fate,” the attorneys said.

While making a number of accusations, they say they would welcome a thorough investigation by the Nigerian Government through the office of its High Commission in Trinidad into the recent events.

    I am tired of this MESS now, stealing in this country has become quite common place I guess it is best to blame her because she is at the bottom of the totem pole.

    Students need to settle down and make the best of their opportunity and let the authority deal with the other problems. Apart from the money issue which can easily be traced ,I read a part where it says MS.Brathwaite went to Nigeria to try to replace MS.St.Hill if the Nigerian officials are satisfied ,what is the problem .

    The real victims here are the students. It is unfortunate how they are being manipulated from all angles.

    Ms. Brathwaite has been cleared of any wrong doing, and she probably will file a lawsuit a la Shanique Myrie, whom Sharon Brathwaite very much resembles. Are they related. Just asking.
