About four students of the Cross River State College of Education, Akamkpa COE, are currently standing trial in Court for academic fraud even as the institution’s authority said that one of its lecturers had also been sent away for similar offence.
Provost of the College, Dr. James Bassey Ejue, disclosed this yesterday while briefing journalists in Calabar, the state capital.
Ejue stressed that despite all warnings by management of the institution against academic and examination foul play, the affected students still went ahead to commit the offence.
He maintained that the institution would not rest on its oars until it ensures that academic fraud was completely stamped out of the school.
The Provost maintained that one man working with a private security outfit who tried to commit theft in the school was caught and has been handed over to the police to face trial.
On the progress made by the institution to reward excellence, the Provost said that, at present, the school management is making arrangement to award scholarship to about 20 of its lecturers for overseas study.
He also maintained that the institution’s management is working hard to ensure that the school commences degree programs particularly in courses like Early Child Care and in several other areas of human endeavors that are not even offered by universities in the country.
Dr. Ejue also said that efforts are on to have hostel accomodation built for students. The project, he said, would be carried out through private partnership arrangement.
