The provost of the Federal Collage of Education, Pankshin, Plateau State, David Wonang, has said about 50 students of the collage were expelled for examination malpractice.
The provost stated this during a pre-convocation press briefing at the collage on Tuesday.
“We do not condone examination malpractice. Last year alone, we expelled between 40 and 50 students due to examination malpractice. We do such exercises on yearly basis,” he said.
He said the college would graduate 13,000 students from 2007 to 2013 academic sessions on Saturday.
According to the provost, of the 13,000 graduating students, 3,000 would be awarded degrees with University of Jos affiliation, while, 10,000 would be awarded NCE.
Speaking on challenges facing the institution, the provost said colleges of education in Nigeria were under-funded.
He explained that the institution had not held its convocation in the last 10 years due shortage of funds and manpower.
The provost also said the institution was lacking in students’ accommodation.
He however appreciated Tertiary Education Trust Fund for providing structures and other logistics to the institution.
