The federal college of education (Technical) Asaba, Delta State, has expelled 36 students over alleged falsification of WAEC results, including other related acts and matriculated 1,500 others.
Provost of the college, Dr. Nwanze Ignatius Ezaem, said that out of 1,500 students that were matriculated, a total of 1,200 were NCE full time students, 160 part-time students while 110 were PDE full-time students, adding that 30 were part time students.
Dr. Ezoem disclosed that the 36 students expelled were found to have forged the WAEC school certificates to gain admission into the college, pointing out that the students were shown the way out instead of handing them over to the police while urging the matriculants to pursue their academic programmes with diligence. Dr. Ezoem said that if they desire to excel and graduate in flying colours, they must be prepared to burn the midnight candles.
He stressed the need for them to familiarize themselves with the students’ handbook of information which prescribes the extant rules and regulations of the college, maintaining that the college was widely acknowledged for zero tolerance for academic misconduct.
