Family of Alhaji Suleiman Ahmad has denied reports that said their daughter was impregnated by Principal of Federal Government College, FGC, Jos, Plateau State, saying it was an “attempt to defame the character and image of their daughter, and her principal.”‬
‪Some dailies newspapers (not Nigerian Pilot), had reported that the principal impregnated his student, aged 17 and had offered to marry her.‬
‪Denying the reports, head of the family, who is also the biological father of Aisha, 19 year-old and SS3 final year student with the Federal Government College, Jos said the reports were “mere allegations intended to tarnish the good moral training of my daughter.”‬
‪According to Ahmad, there was no plan by him to marry Aisha to the school principal, and there was no relationship that could lead to marital engagement between her and the principal, adding ; “All I know is that the grandfather of Muhammad Manko and my daughter’s grandfather on the side of her mother were relations.”‬
‪He stressed: “When she was a boarding student I made Muhammad to be her guardian and up till now Muhammad is her guardian; so I can say that is the relationship that exists among them and not the issue of marriage.‬
‪“I know that the principal is very much aware of the rule that says he cannot seek marital relationship with any of his students and therefore cannot venture into it.”‬
‪On the alleged impregnation of his daughter, the father told our correspondent at his Ali Kazaure residence, Saturday night that, “Aisha is very healthy and not pregnant. As you can see, is there any sign of pregnancy?” he asked.‬
‪He therefore challenged anybody accusing his daughter of pregnancy to come forward and conduct pregnancy test on her in any hospital of his choice.‬
‪“The reports said she is 17 years of age but they are lying; my daughter is 19 years old. She will, by the 11th of this month graduate from the Federal Government College,” he said, threatening to sue the media outfit which published the said report.
