Expel students with less than 0.5 CGPA-Buhari tells VCs
Students in federal universities who scored less than five gross point average (0.5GPA) at the end of every academic year, are to be ejected from campuses.
President Muhammadu Buhari who announced this at the convocation of the University of Port Harcourt (UNIPORT), also read a riot act to student agitators and the university staff collaborating with them.

Buhari represented by education minister of state, Professor Anthony Anwuka, said government will no longer tolerate the disruption of academic activities by professional agitators on university campuses.
The President warned that students who are still bent on endless agitations and university staff who collaborate with them, leading to the disruption of academic activities, will be sanctioned in line with existing regulations.
“We must stop to continue housing adventurers, who have no business remaining in the universities beyond the time specified for their studies in the universities.”
“In that wise, it is being proposed that at the end of this academic year, any student with less than 0.5 CGPA should cease to be a student of the university and should be shown the way out.
“The universities must continue to have people who are serious in what they have come to do,If you have less than 0.5 in your CGPA, you are out. You are out for good so that the space will be left for those who have come to do serious business.”
