Auchi Poly expels 74 students

23 January 2013, 16:16

Edo -  Seventy four students of Auchi Polytechnic, Edo, have been expelled by the institution over examination malpractices.

The institution's spokesperson, Mr Mustapha Oshiobugie, disclosed this in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NNA) in Auchi on Wednesday.

He said the affected students were allegedly involved in various examination misconducts during the 2011/2012 academic session.

Oshiobugie said the expelled students cut across all departments of the polytechnic.

In a related development, four Higher National Diploma (HND) II students had during the session been expelled over results falsification.

He reiterated the readiness of the institution to stamp out all forms of examination malpractices.

``That is why the management deemed it fit to deal with any erring students caught in any act of malpractice.''

Oshiobugie said the exercise was ongoing, adding that the management was also concerned about stamping out certificate forgery.

He said no stone would be left unturned in ensuring students' uprightness in their academic pursuits in the polytechnic.

``This exercise is not only a one-stop thing; that is why we always ensure students are adequately prepared for their examinations and in return we expect that they conduct themselves by not engaging in examination malpractice.

" We are also looking out for those who used forged certificates to gain admission into the institution.

``We will continue to carry out certificate verification and as we have always done, anyone caught will be shown the way out and probably be prosecuted for forgery.''
