Lady Cries Out After She Was “Unjustly” Expelled From Federal University Lokoja

An Economics graduate of Federal University Lokoja, Lydia Lawal has cried out after being expelled by the institution.

According to her, she was expelled alongside 13 other students. Read her story below…

“My name is Lydia Lawal, I studied Economics at Federal University lokoja.
After 4 years of blood and sweat my university handed me an expulsion
letter unjustly. Please I want all well meaning Nigerians to help share
my story till we get justice.
I gained admission to Federal University lokoja in 2013, as an orphan I
had to work in Lagos during the long vacations to pay my school fees.

And from my first semester to 400 level first semester I was on
second class upper with a 4 point cgpa. The issue that led to the
expulsion of 13 students in my class started during my final exams when
there was an alleged examination leakage where some students were said
to have bought questions from a driver.

I happened to be the departmental president at the time of the crises
and I was called by my head of department to answer some with less than
a week’s notice.

The university management refused to release the result of the new
exam, refused to convok my department with others and didn’t mobilize us
for NYSC. I was shocked that after almost 9months the university
management called 13 of us which includes the best student in my class
with a cgpa of 4.9 to come and pick up an expulsion letter, and our
names pasted all over the school as expelled students. The Vice
chancellor claims that as long as you were invited to the exam
malpractice committee, then it’s enough reason to believe one is
involved.Please I am asking for an human right activist to take up our

Please I cannot afford the services of a lawyer.
Please don’t let this injustice be swept under carpet , we believe they are playing politics with our lives”
