The management of the Federal Polytechnic Nekede in Imo state has reacted to a viral video of a student who claimed she graduated from the institution with the help of her private parts.
The yet-to-be-identified student had made the video, which was shared on TikTok, after completing her project defense.
In the video, the ecstatic student claimed she graduated with the help of God and her private parts.
But in a statement on Monday by Eucharia Anuna, its registrar, the institution condemned the act.
The institution said the “despicable act does not represent the standard of our institution”.
“This is to inform the general public that the Management of Federal Polytechnic Nekede, Owerri, has begun full investigations into the identity of the student who gloated on Tiktok about how she graduated with the help of God and her private organ,” the statement reads.
“It is most blasphemous and antithetical that the said student peddled the name of God in her deleterious act.
“Management considers the action of the student as most unacceptable and preposterous. The Federal Polytechnic Nekede prides itself as an institution with high academic and moral standards.
“Both staff and students are quite aware of the consequences of any misconduct. In an unprecedented move, the management, through the various disciplinary committees, had released hotlines through which the students can report any act of exploitation or corruption. These committees are diligent in ensuring that any staff or student found culpable is meted with appropriate punishment.
“The despicable post of this supposed student does not, therefore, represent the standard of our institution. The Rector of the institution, being a clergyman, has been very committed and consistent in instilling discipline in our students through seminars, solemn assemblies, sensitisation outreaches and publications.
“When our investigations are over, we shall make our findings and pronouncements public. It is in our purvey to ensure that only students found worthy in learning and character are certified. This is a commitment to which we shall remain consistently resolute.”
