The Federal Polytechnic Nasarawa has expelled 51 students for examination malpractice during the 2019/2020 academic session.

This is contained in a statement issued on Wednesday by Uba Mana, the polytechnic’s director of information, publicity, and protocol.

Mr Mana added that the affected students were expelled following approval by the academic board of the institution.

“The affected students were expelled on the ground of various offences of examination misconduct that involved both full-time and part-time students,” he stated. “The students expelled are from the Higher National Diploma and National Diploma in Engineering courses, Accounting, Science Lab Tech, Library and Information Science, Mass Communication among others.”

Mr Mana further noted that the institution’s rector, Abdullahi Ahmed, had directed the expelled students to hand over all documents belonging to the polytechnic to their departmental heads.

The rector enjoined the polytechnic students to shun examination malpractice and other social vices to strengthen the growth and development of the institution.
