ABSU Disclaimer Alleged Extortion of Students by Lecturers

The attention of the governing authorities of Abia State University has been drawn to an unsubstantiated online report on social media, alleging the exploitation of Students by some lecturers of the university in form of selling of books, handouts, or compelling them to pay money to pass tests or present assignments.


This is untrue as the university has abolished all forms of selling of handouts by lecturers, while the book review committee of the university oversees all publications, and sales to Students only made through the university bookshop.

However the university management, under the able leadership of the student’ friendly and staff welfare-oriented vice Chancellor, distinguished Professor O. M Ogbulu, promises not to sweep this allegation under the carpet, as a thorough investigation will be carried out, and anyone found culpable, will be made to face the full wrath of the law, as stipulated in the university regulation.
