The University of Ibadan has shown leniency to Kingsley Chinemerem Anyanwu a student who allegedly insulted the vice-chancellor on social media. Anyanwu is to resume with effect from the beginning of the 2017/2018 academic session.
During the 2016/2017 session, Anyanwu was kicked out of the school for gross misconduct after facing the student disciplinary committee. Following a show of remorse from Anyanwu, the vice-chancellor forwarded his case to the committee for reconsideration. Anyanwu was pardoned and allowed to resume with effect from the beginning of this current 2017/2018 academic session. Sunday Saanu, the VC’s media assistant, quoted him to have said: “We are in loco parentis expected to process them for the ultimate use of the society,” . “A 100 level student is still raw and green. We take some of these insult and embarrassment in our stride in order to ensure that they have a rosy future. “But we will not hesitate to wield a big stick for anyone considered to be incorrigible because the certificate going out from UI must be based on sound character and learning.”
