The management of the Federal Polytechnic, Nekede in Imo State has launched a probe into the identity of a female student who made claims about her study on TikTok.
The student said in a post which has gone viral that she graduated with the help of God and her sexual organ.
Reacting to this, the Polytechnic’s Registrar, Eucharia Anuna, said in a statement on Monday that it was blasphemous and antithetical that the student peddled the name of God in her “deleterious act”.
She added, “Management considers the action of the student as most unacceptable and preposterous.
“The Federal Polytechnic Nekede prides itself as an institution with high academic and moral standards.
“Both staff and students are quite aware of the consequences of any misconduct.
“In an unprecedented move, management through the various disciplinary committees, had released hot lines through which students can report any act of exploitation or corruption.”
Anuna said the committees were diligent in ensuring that any staff or student found culpable was meted with appropriate punishment.
According to her, the despicable post of the supposed female student does not therefore represent the standard of our institution.
“The rector of the institution, being a clergyman, has been very committed and consistent in instilling discipline in our students through seminars, solemn assemblies, sensitisation outreaches and publications.
“When our investigations are over, we shall make our findings and pronouncements public.
“It is in our purview to ensure that only students found worthy in learning and character are certified.
“This is a commitment to which we shall remain consistently resolute,” the registrar said.
