• The management of Nnamdi Azikiwe University, Awka has suspended five lecturers from the institution for various cases of examination misconduct.

    The UNIZIK Director of Publications, Mr Emma Ojukwu, who confirmed the suspension in Awka on Tuesday, said that the lecturers were suspended on March 2nd for three months with half salaries pending the outcome of the Senior Staff Disciplinary Committee Report.

    He said lecturers were from the Department of Pure and Industrial Chemistry and the Department of Electronics and Computer Engineering.

    Ojukwu said that they were found culpable in the first semester of 2013/2014 academic session for assisting students in answering questions and frivolous award of marks to undeserving students.

    The other offences were failing to submit examination attendance list, collection of money from students for upgrading of results, sharp practices and irregularities in result sheets.

    He said that the administrative verifications would soon be conducted in other departments to fish out such culprits.
