‘Expel Students With Less Than 0.5 CGPA’ – Anthony Onwuka, Minister Of State by Tizboss75: 11:29pm On Mar 26, 2017
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).

Good move but that doesn't solve the issue of candidates who are due to enroll into University programmes but severally denied admission into tertiary level, waste years at home doing nothing and contributing less to the economy.

Useless and stupid politicians that have destroyed all our institutions of learning. While their Children schools abroad, they are here frustrating Nigerian students, killing their brains with constant strikes.


All the politicians in Nigeria are crimals.

Don't support them.

They will kill your parents and take your land.

Why not first counsel the students to see where their real skill sets may lie?

Considering the many factors that could affect a student's performance, just branding them "unserious" because of a low academic score seems defeatist.

This will only keep increasing the number of disgruntled young people in the land.

And believe me, these guys will "demand" more than N5k per month, by any means necessary

How can somebody get a CGPA of less than 0.5 ..

You can't even move to the next level because you'll be carrying over all your 1st year courses ..
