Auchi Poly Expels 18 Students
The Federal Polytechnic, Auchi, Edo, says it has zero tolerance for social vices and that the management would not hesitate to sanction any student found wanting.
To prove this, the school said it expelled 18 students and rusticated 62 others for various misconducts in the 2016/2017 academic session.
The Rector of the institution, Dr Sanusi Jimah, made this known at the 36th matriculation of the 2017/2018 students in Auchi.
He warned that students who presented fake credentials to gain admission would not be comfortable in the institution.
“All the credentials you presented during the registration process will be verified.
“If the credentials are found to be fake, the penalty is expulsion from the Polytechnic," he said.
Asides advising the students to shun cultism, violence, examination malpractice and other vices, he also urged them to imbibe dialogue, peaceful co-existence, discipline and hard work to excel in their studies.
“You have come into this institution at a time that management is on a mission for transformation.
“This transformation agenda is directed at ensuring that corrupt practices are eliminated in the conduct of academic and other transactions in the polytechnic.
“The management will come down on staff who extort money from students to enhance their examination grades or request gratifications to pass students.
“Just as we hold staff accountable for proper conduct, so also management will hold students accountable for discipline and full compliance with the rules and regulations operating on campus," he said.
