The Senate of the Ladoke Akintola University of Technology (LAUTECH), Ogbomoso, has approved the withdrawal of certificate issued to one of the institution’s students, Oluwanisola Femi Akeju, for not appearing before panels raised to investigate his allegations of victimisation at several times.
The student, who graduated from the Department of Computer Science and Engineering in 2013/2014 academic year with the matriculation number 083659, claimed an unnamed lecturer in the Department of Pure and Applied Biology of the institution failed him in a particular Biology course for six yeaars.
The management of LAUTECH, however, said that efforts made to ensure Akeju explains his allegations in a publication of March 15, 2018, on Naijaloaded proved abortive as he refused to show up before various panels.
According to LAUTECH, Akeju claimed that he sat for BIO 101, 102, 104 and 106 and scored grade ‘A’ in all of the courses which contradicts the grades awarded by the school were he scored BIO 101 (E), 102 (E), 103 (E).
The institution, however, expalined that Akeju, did not register for BIO 104 in his first year in the university until the second semester of his extra year in 2013/2014 session and passed with grade ‘E’.
LAUTECH said it was worried by the ‘unfounded’ allegations on its profile and decided that “all rights and privileges extended to Akeju as alumnus of this university stand suspended”.
“Other sanctions approved by the University’s Senate are the issuance of the academic transcript to him is suspended forthwhile. The statement of results issued by the university to Akeju be immediately invalidated, and that his academic certificate be withheld until further notice,” LAUTECH spokesman said in a statement.
