The Academic Board of Kogi State Polytechnic has approved the expulsion of 10 students for examination misconduct.
The Board also reaffirmed its decision to seize the results of defaulters of school fees after the expiration of grace given to them. A statement issued by the school authority and signed by the Public Relations Officer, Omale Uredo, on Saturday, confirmed the decision of the institution on the current 2021/2022 Academic Session.
These were some of the resolutions reached at the Polytechnic’s academic board meeting held on Wednesday, February, 16, 2022 at the hall of the main campus.
The expelled students were all from different departments of the School of Management Studies, having contravened relevant sections of the revised polytechnic students’ handbook, and were found guilty.
Chairman of the Academic Board, Dr. Salisu Ogbo Usman, reiterated the management and board’s commitment on quality assurance in academics, staff and students’ welfare, as well as infrastructural development.
Dr Usman noted that the Polytechnic would continue to get rid the institution of bad elements who always try to bring its name to disrepute.
