The management of Federal Polytechnic, Oko (OKOPOLY) has moved to checkmate the incidence of alleged extortion of students by setting up an anti-corruption unit in the institution.
Rector of the Polytechnic, Professor
Godwin Onu, who made this disclosure during the 30th matriculation
ceremony of the institution, said that the management had observed with
dismay the increasing rate of breakdown of law and order as it concerned
directive on unauthorized sales of books, handouts and high rate of
exploitation of students by the lecturers.
According to him, extortion has shifted
to in-course assessment since it is no longer feasible for such people,
following the introduction of Computer Base Test (CBT) mode in the
institution during examinations.
He added that the management was worried and, therefore, decided to take necessary measures to stop it.
This is a welcomed development that is
long overdue in our tertiary institutions. I hope the Oko Poly
management will follow up the unit’s works and punish defaulters.
