The Academic Board of Kogi State Polytechnic, Lokoja, has withdrawn the provisional admission of 217 students over poor academic performance.
According to a breakdown of students affected, 157 of them were in ND 1 studying public administration.
The management of the Polytechnic disclosed this in a statement signed by Mrs Uredo Omale, Head, Public Relations and Protocol Unit of the institution in Lokoja.
According to Omale, the Academic Board also approved the expulsion of one Tope Atolagbe, an HND II student of the Department of Library Science with Matriculation Number 2017/HND/LIS/134, for tendering forged documents.
Omale said the decisions were reached at a meeting of the management held on Aug. 9 at the main campus of the institution.
It was chaired by the Rector, Dr Salisu Ogbo Usman.
The Board, after due consideration of the recommendations of Student Disciplinary Committee, found Atolagbe guilty of conniving with one Gbenga Ayeni Michael (2017/ND/BUS/1032) to forge documents.
