“There shall be no absenteeism from lectures, tests and assignments. The minimum class attendance required of full-time students in a semester for each course is 75 per cent of the total contact hours for the semester,” he said.


Baba also warned students of the institution against indiscipline, adding that anyone caught violating established laws would be sanctioned.

The rector recalled how a student was recently expelled despite claiming ignorance for indulging in an “undisclosed act”.

He also called on the students to read the school’s handbook for better knowledge of the rules of conduct on campus.

“Recently we expelled a student for refusal to fill the misconduct form despite her claim of ignorance because it is clearly stated in the Student Handbook,” he added.

“Let me warn at this point that the Polytechnic will not tolerate neither will it condone any act of indiscipline on the part of any student. You are to qualify for graduation only when you have been certified both in character and in learning.”
