Kogi Poly Withdraws 217 Students Over Poor Performance

Kogi State Polytechnic, Lokoja has withdrew 217 of its students for poor academic performance 

Head, Public Relations and Protocols of the polytechnic, Mrs Uredo Omale in a statement, said that the academic board of the Institution approved the withdrawal of Provisional Admissions of the affected students 

She added that the withdrawal  was part of the decisions reached at a meeting of the board on Monday, 9th of August, 2021 at the Hall “A” of the main campus.

The statement further reads in parts: “The meeting chaired by the Rector, Dr. Salisu O. Usman, also considered and approved results of students for the second semester 2019/2020 academic session.

“The Board 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.

“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 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 statement concluded
