Prof. Samuel Bandele, Vice-Chancellor, Ekiti State University (EKSU) declared that the era of students not writing examinations only to be awarded certificates was gone for good. Bandele revealed that a certificate racketeering syndicate has been nabbed.
Bandele added that anybody who wants the school’s certificate must be deserving of it, having worked rigorously to pass.
However, while addressing a briefing on his first three months in office, revealed that the Part Time Programmes (PTP) Unit where the scandal used to be common had been sanitised and some indicted lecturers sacked.
EKSU has begun new courses at certificate and diploma levels to give opportunities to some people to develop themselves and to generate more revenue.
