Redeemer’s University Expel 28 Students for Allegedly Failing Drug Tests

Published

on

It has been revealed that no fewer than 28 students of the Redeemer’s University, have been expelled from the institution for allegedly failing drug tests.

According to the Nation, which reported news, the tests were conducted last November for 42 students, who were asked to go for “routine tests”. However, after resumption this year, some of them were told that they “tested positive” and last Friday, some of those who “tested positive” got expulsion letters, while others got theirs on Monday.

Some of the affected students spoke to The Nation, saying that the University authority never told them the purpose of the test and did not show them the results. They also claim that they were not given a fair hearing: “I only saw in the expulsion letter that I tested positive to hard drugs. I asked for the result of the test, but they didn’t show me. Even if they won’t show it to me, they should at least show my parents the result,” a student said.
“They should have at least set up a panel of enquiry and if the panel finds us guilty, so be it,” another student said.

Meanwhile, the institution’s Director of Corporate Affairs, Adetunji Adeleye, defended the institution’s decision saying it was was taken in line with the school’s religous norms and philosophy “to raise godly children”: “A student was caught with an illicit drug. He mentioned others involved and we took them to the school clinic for tests. Some of them tested positive. There is no need to show the students the results because the university cannot conspire against them.

Chris Ngige

Minister of Labour and Employment, Chris Ngige, has said that the Federal Government’s proposal to exempt members of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) from the Integrated Payroll and Personnel Information System (IPPIS) is a temporary measure.

He explained on Saturday that this measure was pending the conclusion of the integrity test on the University Transparency and Accountability Solution (UTAS).

Ngige who clarified the position of the government team during Friday’s negotiation with ASUU said that it was not true that the government had abandoned IPPIS or that ASUU should not be on IPPIS.

“I think it is better because a lot of people are quoting us out of context saying that we abandoned the IPPIS and that we said they should not be on IPPIS, it is not true.

“What we said in the meeting and what we agreed was that in the interim for the transition period that UTAS is being tested by NITDA and the Office of National Security Adviser for cybersecurity. For those transition period, ASUU members that are not yet on IPPIS will be paid through the platform with which they were paid the President’s compassionate COVID-19 payment done to them between the months of February and June.

“That platform is a hybrid platform between IPPIS and MINPSI platform for the transition period. That was what was used, it’s a hybrid.”
