Fifteen students of the Federal University Gusau, have been expelled for poor academic performances.
Vice Chancellor of the school Prof. Magaji Garba, revealed this at a news conference shortly after the university’s matriculation ceremony on Wednesday in Gusau, Zamfara State.
According to Garba, the students of the university were expected to be serious with their studies and perform up to standard, noting that any student who scores below 1.0 Grade Point Average would be expelled.
Although he did not disclose names of the affected students, he noted that all the 27 programmes being offered by the institution would be accredited between April and May 2018.
Garba said the maiden convocation of the university would hold before the end of the year.
“We want to introduce new programmes into the university, especially engineering, which we believe is very important, considering the availability of solid minerals resources in the state,” said the Vice Chancellor of the Federal University Gusau.
“The Petroleum Technology Development Fund has sponsored five of our staff abroad for doctorate programme in engineering, to boost the capacity of our engineering department.”
