About seventy four students of Auchi Polytechnic, Edo State, have been expelled by the institution over examination malpractices.
The spokesperson of the institution, Mr Mustapha Oshiobugie, disclosed this in an interview in Auchi on Wednesday.
According to the spokes person, the affected students were allegedly involved in various examination misconducts during the 2011/2012 academic session. He further said that 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.
Quoting Mr. Oshiobugie “This exercise is not only a one-stop thing; that is why we always ensure that 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.” (NAN)
