The Federal Polytechnic Auchi, Edo on Monday, warned that it would henceforth sanction lecturers in the who are in the habit of awarding marks to students for money or sex.
The Acting Rector of the institution, Dr. Sanusi Jimah, made the commitment when he received executive members of the polytechnic’s alumni association.
“The management of Auchi Poly will deal with corrupt lecturers who are fond of extorting money from students in order to award marks.
“The management is keeping an eye on corrupt lecturers in the school and anyone caught would not be allowed to mark their scripts for the ongoing examinations if any case is registered against them,’’ Jimah said.
The rector said that corruption would no longer be tolerated and vowed to fish out those who trade marks for sex and money, a phenomenon he said had painted the institution in bad light.
Earlier, the national president of the association, Mr. Victor Okhaimo, had pledged continued collaboration with the institution in the area of infrastructure and human capital development.
He said the association had confidence in the new rector to re-position the institution to greater heights.
Okhaimo commended the rector for restoring peace in the institution, and assured that the association would continue to play its role as a mediator between the union and the management in times of crisis.
