The University of Benin has disproved online rumors that a recent graduate who wore a t-shirt that read “aggressive malpractice carried me this far” was required to repeat her tests at the 200 level.
Peace Ufuoma made headlines earlier this month after wearing a controversial t-shirt during her final exam.
On July 13, Uniben formed a commission to probe Ufuoma for alleged wrongdoing. The committee was given one week to present its report to the Head of Department of Microbiology.
On Wednesday, July 21, reports began circulating online that the commission had determined that Ufuoma rewrites all of her tests beginning at the 200 level.
However, the spokesperson for the University of Benin, Benedicta Adeola Ehanire, has said there is no report yet from the panel set up to investigate Peace Ufuoma, who is under probe for alleged exam malpractice.
Ehanire told SaharaReporters: “The current report online is fake. The University is following due process; panels have been set up to investigate her claims and the panels are yet to submit their report to the management who will consider the report.
“It is not something as straightforward as people are portraying it to be. The University is following due process.”
