Buhari Orders VCs via Minister “Expel Students With Less Than 0.5 CGPA”

President Muhammadu Buhari has advised vice chancellors of universities to expel students with less than 0.5 cumulative grade point average (CGPA).

Speaking on Sunday at the 31st convocation of the University of Port Harcourt (UNIPORT), Buhari said such students should not be allowed to loiter around in higher institutions.

Buhari, who was represented by Anthony Onwuka, minister of state for education, said: “We must stop to continue housing adventurers, who have no business remaining in the universities beyond the time specified for their studies in the universities.”

“In that wise, it is being proposed that at the end of this academic year, any student with less than 0.5 CGPA should cease to be a student of the university and should be shown the way out.

“The universities must continue to have people who are serious in what they have come to do.

“If you have less than 0.5 in your CGPA, you are out. You are out for good so that the space will be left for those who have come to do serious business.”

Buhari also expressed his commitment to the 2009 agreement entered into with the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU).
