Suspended Students Plead for Amnesty, Begs Senate to Reconsider Stand °Say suspension is double punishment

By Ofim, Kelechi Ofim

The students who were recently disciplined by the Senate for evading payment of school fees have cried out to Nasarawa State University authorities, pleading that they should be forgiven their action since they were made to pay additional N10,000 as was directed by the Committee that investigated their case.

Some of the students who contacted this writer, pleading anonymity, said it is unfair for the management to still go ahead to suspend them having been made to paid for the punishment.

“We were asked to pay extra 10K beside the main fee”, one of the affected students said, believing that to be enough reprimand for fake registration.

“Even when we told them that some of us fell into the hands of scammers; I personally, wouldn't engage in sabotaging the system and having been made to pay extra fee I think they should temper Justice with mercy”, another student lamented.

The Senate of Nasarawa State University, Keffi, recently punished more than 300 students for several offences, including fake registration, who were either suspended or rusticated for not less than a semester.

The implication of the suspension is that the affected students will repeat a semester or a session, depending on his or her offence. The student will also pay the school fees for that session and forfeit graduating with his set.

There are indications that more students are still being investigated and may soon face similar consequences as soon as Senate ratifies committee's recommendations.
