Again, Kogi Poly expels 193 students over poor results
Kogi State Polytechnic has expelled 193 students due to poor academic performance in the 2019/2020 academic session just weeks after compelling 217 students to withdraw for the same reason.
This was contained in a statement released by the institution’s spokesperson, Uredo Omale.
Omale disclosed that 130 of the expelled students were from ND I Business Administration.
The polytechnic spokesperson further stated that the affected students were from four departments (Business Administration, Mathematics and Statistics, Science Laboratory Technology, Library and Information Science).
She added that the Academic Board of the polytechnic considered and approved the withdrawal of the students and supplementary results at an emergency meeting.
Omale also noted that the school’s Deputy Rector, Kehinde Lamidi, who presided over the emergency meeting, approved the second-semester examination results for the 2019/2020 academic session and other pending results.
The students withdrawn were from ND I, Mathematics and Statistics, one from ND I Science Laboratory Technology, 130 from ND I Business Administration, 31 from HND I Business Administration, two from ND II Library and Information Science, and 20 from ND I Library Science.
The approval for the withdrawal was part of the verification of results, marking the last phase of the second semester of the 2019/2020 academic session.
