28 Students Expels From Redeemer’s University



According to the reports The nations gathered  about the situation of  42 students, who were asked to go for “routine tests” last year November.. 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; others got theirs on Monday.

But it’s a painful decision we must take in our quest to raise students that will transform the world. The expelled students are those that refused the university’s lifeline of a second chance.
“We wanted to help them. The university has a programme designed to help them live a normal life, but they rejected the offer. A few of them accepted and they are undergoing the programme,” The Nation quoted him as saying.
