The University of Benin has cleared the air on the rumors circulating the internet that it has requested the student who wore a t-shirt on her final examination paper branded, aggressive malpractice brought me this far, to rewrite her exams from 200L.
The student who is a lady went viral earlier this month after she pictures with the shirt and posted on Social media.
Following the wave it generated online, the varsity set up a panel on the 13th of July to investigate Ufuoma Peace who studied Microbiology for the alleged malpractice. A committee was set up in regards to this and was supposed to submit its report in a week.
Then on Wednesday, 21th of July, rumors started spreading that the school has requested that she return to the school to rewrite her exams from her 200 level.
However, the spokesperson for the University of Benin, Benedicta Adeola Ehanire, released a statement to SaharaReporters that the rumors are fake, and that the committee was yet to submit the report that was asked to the management that will review the report.
Here’s what she told SaharaReporters,
“The current report online is fake. The University is following due process; panels have been set up to investigate her claims and the panels are yet to submit their report to the management who will consider the report.
It is not something as straightforward as people are portraying it to be. The University is following due process.”
