Taraba varsity expels student for criticising Governor on Facebook

A 100-level student of the Taraba State University, Joseph Israel has been expelled for allegedly criticizing the state’s governor Darius Ishaku

The University’s management forced Israel to appear before a malpractice committee which deals with issues of indiscipline and academic wrongdoings, for allegedly being a known online critic of the state’s Governor.

Israel who was admitted to study Chemistry but later switched to Laboratory Science in the state-owned school, reportedly had his admission withdrawn in September by the management of the institution who claimed he didn’t “complete the registration processes” which include signing the matriculation oath form.

 “Further take notice that the withdrawal of the said admission is hinged on your inability to complete the registration processes of Taraba State University, Jalingo, as approved by the relevant university regulation and which makes (you) a ghost student” his expulsion letter read in part.

However, Joseph Israel denied the claim, saying he made a mistake of not taking a photo of the matriculation form he signed.

 “The mistake I did was not snapping a picture on the day. I am not a picture person. But I have over 20 persons who can testify that I was there with them on that day. I also signed the form given to us,” he said.

Israel further revealed that when the committee confronted him over his criticism of the governor, he asked if there was any law in the university stopping students from using social media and expressing their views on governance in the state.

 The committee didn’t have a ready response at that time and asked him to go until the investigation was concluded. He was, however, handed an expulsion letter instead.
