The Imo State Polytechnic, Umuagwo in Ohaji/Egbema Local Government Area, has expelled 389 students over alleged examination malpractice and admission racketeering.
This was promulgate to schoolwatch.com.ng grapevine by the Rector of the institution, Rev. Fr. Wence Madu.
Speaking exclusively to our correspondent in Owerri yesterday, Madu said that some of the affected students engaged in examination malpractice, some did not enter the school through the right way while some others failed to abide by the institution’s rules and regulations.
The Rector maintained that measures have been put in place to fish out all those who entered the institution through the backdoor, stressing that anyone caught will be shown the way out.
Fr. Madu, who reaffirmed the institution’s zero tolerance for examination malpractice, cultism and other vices, said the management is poised to repositioning the polytechnic so that its graduates can effectively compete favourably in the labour market.
He said the era of sorting/ bribery for admission is over and charged students and those seeking to enter the school to concentrate on their studies so that they can earn good scores by merit rather than by hook and crook.
