The former female student of Federal Polytechnic Nekede Owerri, who claimed to have graduated by the help of God and her private part did not mean to defame the institution.
This is the assertion of her lawyer, Ikechukwu Nwopara in a letter to the Rector of the polytechnic, Michael Arimanwa.
Nwopara added that Okoroafor Ogechi Sharon had a slip of tongue which made her to pronounce pussy instead of pupsy.
The letter reads;”We are solicitors to OKEREAFOR OGECHI SHARON (our Client under our Pro Bono (Free Legal Services) on whose behalf we write this memo to you.
“We are aware that she will be facing the school disciplinary panel this morning and we wish to use this medium to express our confidence that the panel will carry out their duties in compliance with the principles of Fair hearing, Good conscience and Natural Justice devoid of harassment, intimidation and threats.
“We have met and discussed with our client and evidence before us shows that she has no intention to defame the character, standard and integrity of the institution.
“In her words what happened in the said viral video was a slip of tongue as a result of her uncontrollable ecstacy over her graduation. Her intended words were “God and Pupsy”(Not P*ssy) in appreciation of the almighty God and her Dad.
“It is clear therefore, that she had no intention whatsoever to use such a “foul word” in the said viral video to cajole or blackmail the institution as no lecturer or name of the institution was mentioned or referred in the said viral video.
“Our lawyers are already on ground at the institution now to follow up the proceedings at the panel against any form of intimidation or harassment. The integrity and standard of the said institution is not in doubt especially since my Senior brother, Rev Dr Arimanwa took over as the Rector.”
