Latest educational sad news reaching our news desk today, is that the management board of the Nnamdi Azikiwe University has officially sacked one lecturer, demoted 3 and meted out various punishment to four others for crime against educational excellence in the school.
This followed the report of the Senior Staff Disciplinary Committee on Investigation on sharp practice in
the Faculty of Engineering, concerning a lecturer who participant in a malpractice.
The biggest hit was the lecturer whose appointment was terminated, and we gathered information that he manipulated students examination answer scripts in the 2012/2013 academic session.
While other lecturers who were affected, are those who were penalized for offences which include the following;
Alteration of marks,
Awarding marks indiscriminately,
Inability to submit students’ attendance list,
Lack of marking schemes,
Extorting Money from students.
We hope that these lecturers learn their lesson
