Nasarawa Poly Consultancy Unit threatens to sack lecturers over extortion
The Consultancy Unit of Nasarawa State Polytechnic, Lafia, has warned lecturers against extorting money from students.
The Director, Mr. Ibrahim Dauda, who gave the warning yesterday in an interview with The Guardian, said any lecturer or staff caught extorting students would be sanctioned.
“Any staff in this unit caught collecting money from students as gratification or under any guise would be shown the way out of this institution.
“Any students caught offering money or any gift as gratification to get favour from the lecturers would equally be sanctioned,” he added.
He urged the students to shun all social vices, as anyone caught would face disciplinary action.
Dauda assured that as part of efforts to encourage students, the management has decided to offer automatic employment to any Higher National Diploma (HND) student who graduates with good grade to boost their performance and justify the value the polytechnic attaches to the certificate.
The director further added that the unit has commenced full National Diploma (ND) programme, 13 years after establishment, saying the introduction of the programme become necessary to augment the carrying capacity of the polytechnic’s regular programmes, with ongoing plans to introduce part-time ND and HND programmes that would span three years, instead of the two years for regular ND programme.
