In 2008, former Nollywood actor established a N200 million school, St Nicholas College, 1, Raji Oladimeji Crescent, Magodo, Lagos.
He established the school with the aim of giving the Nigerian child the best education.
In his words then “Basically, I feel Nigerian youth deserve better and we are seeing how we can correct one or two anomalies in the academic sector. We have schools without laboratories, no quality class rooms, no good facilities, so we are trying our best to get Nigerian youth together.
It took me a while to complete the school…It was a huge investment. I believe in building the Nigerian youth. It’s not all about money, we are here to impact.”
Well, it appears the man who claimed not to “love money” is now obsessed with it!
Teachers & Salary/Fake Board of Directors:
A source exclusively revealed to KFB that Emeka Ike is fond of using his teachers like animals.
“He makes them go extra mile but doesn’t pay them. He owes them for months, he hasn’t paid them for six months now yet money is coming in…The school buildings are about collapsing, the roofs are leaking and he doesn’t seem to care…He doesn’t care about renovating the school, all he cares about is the money”
Also confirming the story, another source who presently works in the school disclosed that many of the good teachers had quit, while the new teachers in school are half-baked and non.professionals
“…Some don’t even have NCE yet they are teachers…No one goes into a project without benefiting from it but my oga’s intent in the education sector is just to collect money…The man is such a broke-ass. He has no business in the educational sector so he should just leave instead of destroying the lives of these young ones. The school slogan is the belief in your dream and he doesn’t even show any belief in the kids dream.”
Further revelations to KFB showed that Emeka Ike doesn’t have a proper board of directors, the names only exist on paper. “The school management team comprises of him and his wife alone….who does that ” one of my sources stated, adding that
“the annoying thing is, when teachers complain of salaries, his usual excuse is, the federal government also owes his workers, even AIT’s Dokpesi also owes his staff and they don’t complain, so get used to it.”
The longest serving teachers in the school are Mrs Ejim and Mr Odusolu….but the former left a while ago after being owed six months’salary. He even recently sacked his school principal because “he wasn’t ready to condole the wrong acts in the school and its mismanagement…”
Despite the high school fees the students pay, he fails to give them a balanced diet, sometimes their meal is a repetition of breakfast and dinner. Most times they eat without meat and fish .
“They sometimes eat rice in the morning and still take it for dinner. Anyways, the smart ones have changed to the other schools. They complained to their parents. The few ones left here are the ones I pity” the source further revealed. As a result of the mismanagement all the students in the school left leaving him with only 13 students for the third term session.”
What he spends his money on:
All he spends his money on is “IGBO cocaine and women” Oh really?!
“Yes, his tout gateman, Ahmed, who doubles as his driver and multipurpose P.A, is the one in charge of that. All he does is use the school bus which he (Emeka Ike) just bought to run errands for his boss i.e get the cocaine and the prostitutes. We all know he takes that stuff, we do…and after he sniffs it, he starts misbehaving….no wonder he has fought with all his Nollywood colleagues to the extent that they don’t feature him in their movies anymore”
“His wife, Emma, born to a German dad and a Nigerian mother, is no better. She is the proprietress. They both squander the money coming in. He beats her, damn, he beats her like crazy but when he spoils her, he spoils her with money…they have four kids, Michael, 11, Kelly, 8, Jason 5 and Andrea, 2. I really hope the situation is rectified otherwise the school should be closed down…”
Oh well…Emeka Ike!
