Kogi Poly Expels Student; Withdraws 217 Over Poor Academic Performance

The Kogi State Polytechnic, on Tuesday, announced the expulsion of Mr. Tope Atolagbe, HND II student of the Department of Library Science (2017/HND/LIS/134), for tendering forged documents.

The Polytechnic equally withdrew the provisional admissions of 217 students of the institution for poor academic performance.

In a statement sent to newsmen on Tuesday evening, the Polytechnic Head, Public Relations and Protocol Unit, Mrs. Uredo Omale said the decision to expel and withdraw the affected students was reached at a meeting by the Academic Board held on Monday, 9th August 2021.

She explained that the meeting was chaired by the Rector of the Polytechnic Dr. Salisu O. Usman.

The statement reads in part “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 a 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.”
