The management of Kogi State Polytechnic in Lokoja has withdrawn 193 students over poor academic performance in the 2019/2020 academic session.


According to NAN, Uredo Omale, the institution’s head of public relations and protocol unit, broke the news in a statement on Thursday.

Omale said the affected students were from four departments namely business administration, mathematics and statistics, science laboratory technology as well as library and information science.

She said nine students were withdrawn from ND I Mathematics and Statistics’, one from ND I Science Laboratory Technology, 130 from ND I Business Administration, 31 from HND I Business Administration, two from ND II Library and Information Science, and 20 from ND I Library Science.


Omale said the academic board of the polytechnic considered and approved the withdrawal of the students at a recent emergency meeting.

Kehinde Felix Lamidi, the deputy rector, who presided over the emergency meeting, also approved the result of the second-semester examination for the 2019/2020 academic session and other pending results.

The rector commended the central result verification committee for its efforts and thanked members of the academic board for their support.


He said the approval for withdrawal as well as the decision reached at the meeting were in continuation of the verification of results and marked the last phase of the second semester of the 2019/2020 academic session.

The development comes about two weeks after the institution also withdrew the admission of 217 students over poor grades.
