“The management of Taraba State University (TSU) has issued a stern warning to its staff members who are involved in the illicit practice of extorting students by falsely claiming fees for project supervision and project topic approval.
In a circular released on Monday and shared with the press in Jalingo, the state capital, the Vice Chancellor of TSU expressed strong disapproval of this behaviour.
The circular, signed by Professor Isa Musa, the Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Academics), conveyed the university management’s concern about the growing incidents of students being subjected to extortion by staff members, who are disguising these fees as necessary for project supervision and topic approval.
The university’s administration lamented the escalating rate of such malpractices within the institution and cautioned that any lecturer caught engaging in such extortionate acts would face disciplinary action. The statement explicitly stated, “The Vice-Chancellor has, therefore, directed that staff members involved in such activities must immediately cease, and any staff found guilty will be subjected to disciplinary measures.”
Furthermore, the university’s management encouraged students to speak up and report any instances of such misconduct to the university authorities. The circular emphasized, “Students are urged to come forward and report such incidents to the university management.”
Deans and heads of departments were also advised to ensure strict adherence to this directive. Recent concerns were raised by final-year students at the university regarding alleged extortion by some members of the institution’s staff.”
