The management of University of Benin has played down media reports currently in circulation that a recent graduate who rocked a controversial t-shirt with an inscription, “aggressive malpractice brought me this far” has been asked to rewrite her exams from 200 level.
Recall that the graduate identified as Peace Ufuoma became a trend earlier this month after she wore the controversial t-shirt after her final exam.
Uniben then set up a panel on July 13 to investigate Ufuoma for alleged malpractice. The committee was given one week to submit its report to the Microbiology Head of Department
Reports began circulating online on Wednesday, July 21, that the committee has concluded that Ufuoma rewrites all her exams from 200 level.
However, the spokesperson for the University of Benin, Benedicta Adeola Ehanire, has said there is no report yet from the panel set up to investigate Peace Ufuoma, who is under probe for alleged exam malpractice.
Ehanire 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.”
