No fewer than 459 students of the Federal Polytechnic, Unwana Afikpo, Ebonyi State have been expelled by the management following their alleged involvement in exam malpractices, fighting, cult-related offences and gaining admission into the institution with fake certificates.
The Rector of the institution Dr. Francis Otunta,
who disclosed this during the 12th convocation of the institution at its
premises, said the polytechnic promotes discipline to stop students
from cheating during exams.
According to Otunta, "In a bid to
maintain academic excellence, we promote stringent discipline so that
our students reconsider cutting corners during examination, since no
short cut is a good one. The structure we have in place also discourages
undesirable learner behaviour so that we may enjoy peaceful coexistence
as one big team, where no one is oppressed or marginalised.”.......................Full Story
