Federal University of Gusau rusticates 15, expels 2 others for misconduct
The governing council of the Federal University Gusau, Zamfara has rusticated 15, and expelled 2 students of the institution over examination malpractice as a deterrent to other students who might indulge in such practice.
News Agency of Nigeria, (NAN) reports that the Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Magaji Garbage, made it known to NAN while inspecting the ongoing Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) in Gusau on Tuesday.
He said that University Governing Board took the measure to serve as deterrent to other students who might indulge in examination malpractice.
“Out of the 17 students that were caught in examination misconduct, only two students did not appear at the Senate meeting for interrogation; and so, they were expelled.”
“The remaining 15 students were rusticated, which means they will miss one academic session, and will resume after serving their punishment.”
“This will serve as a lesson to other students to behave themselves, study well and be of good behaviour,’’ he said.
The Vice Chancellor, who serves as JAMB Chief External Examiner for the 2017 UTME in the state, said the examination was going on peacefully and smoothly in all the centres.
