Sanusi Jimah, the acting rector of the institution, 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,” Jimah said.

“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 examination, if any case is registered against them.”
