UNIBEN Denies Ordering Graduate Who Wore ‘Malpractice Brought Me This Far’ Signing Out Shirt To Rewrite Exams From 2nd Year
University of Benin has debunked circulating reports that one of its graduate, who recently went viral for wearing a signing out shirt with the inscription “aggressive malpractice brought me this far“, has been asked to rewrite all her examinations from 2nd year.
Some days ago, a video had gone viral on social media showing the young lady, Peace Ufuoma, wearing the controversial shirt during her signing out parade recently.
Then on Tuesday, July 13, Department of Microbiology, University of Benin constituted a committee to probe the results of a female student, who marked her graduation in a controversial shirt.
The memo sighted online was signed by the department’s head, S.E Omonigho, and directed to one Prof I. O Enabulele to head the committee which was given one week to submit a report to the Head of Department.
To investigate her involvement in any examination malpractice; to investigate what transpired about the online publications; to scrutinize all her results till date, including all exam scripts; to scrutinize all marking schemes for all her courses; how true is the inscription on her shirt…?
It was also alleged that the school management is of the opinion that Peace Ufuoma be used as a scapegoat to tell every student of the University of Benin that examination malpractices are not allowed within its walls.
However, spokesperson for the University of Benin, Benedicta Adeola Ehanire, according to SaharaReporters, said there is no report yet from the panel set up to investigate Ufuoma.
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.
