Below are what some Nigerian Students are saying about the Redeemer University Nigeria expulsion
From Charles K (Covenant University)…
First of all, there was nothing wrong with what the school did, the rules are supposed to be adhered to, they knew it wasn’t allowed and they decided to take drugs…. Freebrowsinglink.com the school gave them a chance to get rehabilitated, those that went for counselling didn’t get expelled.
where is the wisdom in informing students or even anybody of an impending drug test please enlighten me. the person that said something about christian schools being stupid…..jo beru olorun, don’t heap curses on your head. please respect God..
From Amara… (Redeemer University)
I’m a 400 level student of Redeemer’s University and the truth is the school has invaded on people’s privacy which contravenes to section 37 of the 1999 constitution…
although the school rules says it would expel any student in possession of drugs and anyone caught in the act but for Christ’s sake this student were not even caught taking the drugs and I doubt if the school clinic even has the facility required for the test.
My school could be very harsh, unjust and unfair in their trial, they just love to focus on unnecessary things and that is why after about 7 years, they’ve still not moved to their permanent site.
Someone, please ask my school what happens to their merit policy or a situation where a student has extra points?
The guy acting has the C.S.O of the school should also be investigated because his hands are not clean.
Just recently, the female hostel of Redeemer University Nigeria was on heat because some men came in the middle of the night and forced open some doors and robbed some girl’s of their valuables. This has been happening for years and still the school has not done anything about it and not that they would replace those items, they’ll just give you ‘N1,600’ to buy a carton of noodles.
I’m glad that the nation did this write up… Investigative journalists could do a write up on my school if they take their time.
Please forgive any error seen and forgive the long story, just bitter about the school
Whatever you do, remember if you are planning to attend a christain university, you need to adhere to th rules (that is the reason why your parents/guardian agreed to send you to one)
We hope the Expelled 28 students of Redeemer University are called back.
