The Kogi State Polytechnic has expelled 25 students over their alleged involvement in various forms of examination malpractice.
The institution disclosed this in a statement issued by its Head of Public Relations and Protocol Unit, Mrs. Uredo Omale, on Saturday in Lokoja.
Omale said the decision was taken at the meeting of the institution’s Governing Board held on August 13.
According to her, the decision was in line with the recommendation of the Students Examination Malpractice Committee.
She said the students were found guilty of various forms of examination misconduct during the second-semester examination for the 2018/2019 academic session.
The spokesperson said the board had during the meeting also approved backlog of results across all schools, beginning from the 2016/2017 academic session.
“The meeting also considered and approved the establishment of the School of Agricultural Technology at the Itakpe campus of the polytechnic,” Omale said.
She said the newly-approved school would commence academic activities with National Diploma (ND) programmes in the 2020/2021 session.
