He said, “This institution is aiming at being the best polytechnic in Nigeria, so we have zero tolerance for indiscipline, any student caught in any act of indicipline would be dealt with. For instance two of our students were expelled recently. We discovered that they were involved in cultism and we set a panel for them, so they were expelled.”
