“The polytechnic has raised the standard of discipline in the last two years. I can report that this nexus for money for marks, gratification for grades and other unethical practices has been largely curbed.

“The polytechnic achieve this by visiting sanctions on 27 staff who thought that this was a way of life,” he said.

According to him, “of the number, 11 staff were dismissed, six had their appointment terminated while 10 others were downgraded,”.
