The Nasarawa state Federal Polytechnic has expelled 66 students over examination malpractice and misconduct.
Rector of the polytechnic, Mr. Abdullahi Hassan, stated this in a statement issued on Wednesday, October 16 in Nasarawa.
“The decision to expel the students was reached and taken after thorough investigation at the special meeting of the board held on Wednesday, September 25, 2019 at the polytechnic”, the statement read.
“The expelled students are, therefore, required to handover all polytechnic property in their possession, including identity card to their Head of Departments and Units with immediate effect.”
The Rector stressed that his administration would not relent up until examination malpractice and other corrupt practices were eliminated in the institution, adding that any institution that compromised its ethical values would be unable to produce good product needed for national development.
