Kogi State Polytechnic has withdrawn 193 students due to poor academic performance in the 2019/2020 academic session just weeks after sending 217 students away for the same reason.
This was announced in a statement by the institution’s spokeswoman, Uredo Omale.
Most of the expelled students (130) were from ND I Business Administration.
Mrs Omale 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.
Mrs Omale further 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The students withdrawn were from ND I, Mathematics and Statistics, one from ND I Science Laboratory Technology, 130 from ND I Business Administration, 31 from HND I Business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.
Mrs Omale also stated that 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.
