LASU chief accuses lecturers of sabotaging sandwich examination
THE Lagos State University External System (LASUES) on Monday blamed the delay in the conduct of the 2014 session examinations for the sandwich programme on lecturers’ refusal to set examination questions.
Director of LASUES, Prof. Olatunji Abanikanda, told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Lagos that some lecturers in the unit only decided to set the examination questions after they were subjected to immense pressure.
As a result of the alleged sabotage and in finding a way out of the quagmire, the university teacher said the unit decided to engage external experts to set questions for those courses whose lecturers have still refused to submit their examination questions.
“The examination was delayed because some lecturers did not set their questions; but we have decided to engage external experts to set the questions and we will personally administer it. Most of the lecturers involved are those in the Faculty of Education, because they feel the programme belongs to them and should be run as they wish,” Abanikanda claimed.
“With the plans on ground, we would hold the 2014 examinations this weekend,” the director said adding that those lecturers who did not submit their questions for the examinations would not be paid because external experts have been engaged to do their duties.
The director said moves by anyone to frustrate the administration of the unit would not to be allowed, as he would do everything possible to put all things in order.
Abanikanda therefore urged the students to be calm and prepare for the examination.
