The College of Education, Akwanga, Nasarawa State, has sacked a lecturer found to have collected money to clear students who had carry-overs in some courses.
Rebecca Umaru, Provost of the college, disclosed to the News Agency of Nigeria on Tuesday in Akwanga that Paul Madela, the lecturer, who is the institution’s examination officer, extracted money from students that had failed some courses and were expected to carry them over.
“The Governing Council of the college approved his sack when a committee set up to investigate the allegation found him culpable,” Mr. Umaru said.
Ms. Umaru said that two other lecturers, Musa Agwadu and Ibrahim Shakaro, were also being investigated for diverting registration money they allegedly collected from students.
“If the two lecturers are found guilty, we shall apply appropriate sanctions in line with the law,” she said.
