University expels six students for exam malpractice

18 June 2012, 13:51

Ogun - The Tai Solarin University of Education (TASUED), Ijebu-Ode, Ogun, on Monday said that it expelled six students and rusticated 20 others for examination malpractice.

Prof. Segun Awonusi, the institution`s Vice-Chancellor, disclosed this.

He said the disciplinary action was taken against the students after they were found guilty of the offence by the Senate of the university.

Awonusi said that the institution had zero tolerance for examination malpractice and cultism, adding that it would not compromise its stand on it.

He said, ``We have zero tolerance for examination malpractice and cultism. It is no go area.

Once you are caught, you are on your own because that is the way we can instill discipline in our students, who we believe, will take over from us tomorrow.

“We are not saying the vices can be wiped off over night but gradually we will get there.''

On the issue of cultism, the vice-chancellor said the institution had started building hostels to curtail the menace.

He said this was because research had shown that cultism thrives more in non-residential institutions.

The vice-chancellor said, ``Research has confirmed that cultism thrives more in non residential institution than in the residential ones.

``And that is why we started building hostels for students within the campus in order to return to the residential format, which we believe will in one way or the other minimise the act of cultism.''

Awonusi said that the institution had been saved the spectacle of students' unrest in the past few years, said that the university would not allow anything that would jeopardise the peace in the institution.

The vice-chancellor, however, urged the students to desist from all acts of social vices that were capable of jeopardising their future.
