Poor Academic Performance: Kogi Poly Withdraws 217 Students, Expels 1 For Forgery

Abuja – The Kogi State Polytechnic, Lokoja, has approved the withdrawal of Provisional Admissions of 217 students of the institution for poor academic performance.

It also approved the expulsion of one Mr Tope Atolagbe, HND II student of the Department of Library Science (2017/HND/LIS/134), for tendering forged documents.

This was contained in a press statement issued by Head, Public and Protocol Unit, Mrs Uredo Omale, on Wednesday.

The decision was reached at the meeting held last Monday by the management of the institution chaired by the Rector, Dr Salisu Usman.

The management also considered and approved the results of students for the second semester 2019/2020 academic session.

“The Board, after due consideration of the recommendations of Student Disciplinary Committee, found Mr Atolagbe guilty of conniving with one Mr Gbenga Ayeni Michael (2017/ND/BUS/1032) who illegally tendered forged documents to obtain the statement of results which they also used to dupe other students.

“Consequently, the board approved that the result of Mr Gbenga Ayeni Micheal who is at large be withheld until he appears before the disciplinary committee for interrogation.

“The rector used the occasion to disclose that the Dean, Students Services, Engineer Salawu Salihu Ijiji, has been redeployed as Director, Kogi Poly Consults while Mr John Friday Otaru who was the Director of the Poly Consults would now be the Dean, Students Services.

“The rector who thanked the board for the continued support, however, charged members who are heads of Schools, Departments and Units to always provide dependable leadership at all times,” the statement added.
