The University of Ibadan’s senate decreed that 408 students were not worthy to be in the university due to their academic performance and urged them to drop out.
This happened at the annual meeting for the school senate in which results of graduating and non-graduating students were considered and approved.
The most affected by this development were the students admitted to the school when the post-UTME test was not conducted because of opposition to the exercise in the 2016/2017 session.
Prof. Adeyinka Aderinto, the Deputy Vice Chancellor of the university gave a statement to journalists that the school would not lower its academic standards even with the financial difficulty it currently faces.
“The University of Ibadan will continue to uphold its standards despite dwindling funding to the university, by adhering to global standards.
“I call on parents to monitor their children to ensure that those who have been asked to withdraw from the university do not lie and continue to extort money in the name of being a student at the university.
“The conduct of UI Model of Post-UTME screening has helped to separate men from boys and helped the institution in maintaining its historical standards as a global brand.
“Being admitted to the UI is a privilege that requires students to be up and doing in their studies.
“There are minimum academic requirements a student must meet at the end of the session and those who fall short of that would have to leave the university.
“UI has been able to invent its own model of screening applicants and it has shown that those who we screened performed far better than those not subjected to our screening after taking JAMB.”
