Buhari Orders VCs to Expel Students With Less Than 0.5 CGPA!!!

President Muhammadu Buhari yesterday gave
vice chancellors a marching order to expel
students with less than 0.5 Cumulative Grade
Point Average (CGPA) from next academic
session. Such students, he said, are unserious
with school and therefore should not be
accommodated any longer in higher institutions.

The President cautioned governing councils and
managements of universities against muzzle-
flexing and ego-tripping, which he said had
thrown affected universities into avoidable
crises. Buhari spoke at the 31st convocation of
the University of Port Harcourt (UNIPORT).

He
further assured his administration was
committed to the 2009 agreement entered into
with the Academic Staff Union of Universities
(ASUU).

This, he noted, led to the recent setting up of a
committee to renegotiate the contentious
agreement. Buhari, who was represented by the
Minister of State for Education, Prof. Anthony
Onwuka, told vice-chancellors and their
managements to practice transparency,
accountability, fairness and ensure discipline.

He said: “We must a stop to continue housing
adventurers, who have no business remaining in
the universities beyond the time specified for
their studies in the universities. In that wise, it is
being proposed that at the end of this academic
year, any student with less than 0.5 CGPA should
cease to be a student of the university and
should be shown the way out.

The universities
must continue to have people who are serious in
what they have come to do in school. If you have
less than 0.5 in your CGPA, you are out. You are
out for good so that the space will be left for
those who have come to do serious business”.
On governing council, he charged them to avoid
unnecessary muzzle-flexing and ego-tripping that
throw affected universities into avoidable crises.

They must look after the welfare of staff and
students and ensure proper development of their
universities.
On the contentious 2009 agreement with ASUU,
Buhari pleaded with the lecturers to give peace a
chance, by coming to the negotiation table in
the best interest of higher education. He
reassured ASUU and other unions that
government was committed to quality education
in the universities and other layers of the
education sector, including the welfare of staff in
the system.
