The Federal Polytechnic Auchi, Edo State, has warned lecturers in the institution against awarding marks to students for money or sex.
Acting Rector of the institution, Sanusi Jimah, who issued the warning on Monday, said that any lecturer caught will be dealt with appropriately.
“The management of Auchi poly will deal with corrupt lecturers who are fond of extorting money from students in order to award marks, Mr Jimah said when he received executive members of the polytechnic’s Alumni Association.
“The management is keeping an eye on corrupt lecturers in the school and anyone caught would not be allowed to mark their scripts for the ongoing examination, if any case is registered against them.’’
The rector said that corruption would no longer be tolerated and vowed to fish out those who trade marks for sex and money which painted the institution in bad light.
Speaking earlier, the national president of the Alumni Association, Victor Okhaimo, pledged continued collaboration with the institution in the area of infrastructure and human capital development.
The association further drummed its support for the acting rector to reposition the institution.
