My name is Lydia Lawal, I studied Economics at Federal University lokoja.
After 4 years of blood and sweat my university handed me an expulsion letter unjustly. Please I want all well meaning Nigerians to help share my story till we get justice.
I gained admission to Federal
University lokoja in 2013, as an orphan I had to work in Lagos during the long vacations to pay my school fees. And from my first semester to 400 level first semester I was on second class upper with a 4 point cgpa. The issue that led to the expulsion of 13 students in my class
started during my final exams when there was an alleged examination leakage where some students were said to have bought questions from a driver. I happened to be the departmental president at the time of the crises and I was called by my head of department to answer some
with less than a week’s notice. The university management refused to release the result of the new exam, refused to convok my department with others and didn’t mobilize us for NYSC. I was shocked that after almost 9months the university management called 13 of us which includes
the best student in my class with a cgpa of 4.9 to come and pick up an expulsion letter, and our names pasted all over the school as expelled students. The Vice chancellor claims that as long as you were invited to the exam malpractice committee, then it’s enough reason
to believe one is involved.Please I am asking for an human right activist to take up our case. My mother is a poor widow that cannot afford the services of a lawyer.
Please don’t let this injustice be swept under carpet , we believe they are playing politics with our live
