He said that the affected student did not meet up with the minimum condition approved by the university senate.

He said one out of every nine of the 100 level students did not meet the minimum condition to retain their studentship.

It can be; observed that students in the science -based disciplines, in particular, did not perform too well, with the pass rate being; lowest at 67.5 per cent at the faculty of veterinary medicine. On the other hand, the humanities- based disciplines posted better results, with the best coming from the 2016/2017 session.

Olayinka then expressed optimism for a better academic performance since the new intakes for  2017/2018 session were; those who sat for and passed the post UTME Test.
