The Bagabaga College of Education in Tamale, Northern Region, has sacked 18 first-year and 11 second-year students from the institution for poor performance.

According to the principal of the college, Alhaji Adam Zakaria, there was a directive from the Institute of Education, University of Cape Coast (UCC) – the body that examines the students – that all students who fail the supplementary end-of-semester examination and had been referred should be sacked from the college.

Alhaji Zakaria stated that a student will be withdrawn for poor performance if he/she is unable to pass all the failed subjects in the supplementary end-of-semester examination.

He advised the sacked students not to be discouraged in life and that there is no one royal road to success.

He indicated that a student who is withdrawn may re-apply for admission the following academic year for the same or a different programme.

The Students’ Representative Council President, Awudu Marwan, who spoke to DAILY GUIDE said, ’The pronouncement by the principal to the student body was a directive from the Institute of Education to withdraw students who performed poorly from the college.’

He said, ‘Though the news was unpleasant to the entire school, it was a national order to all Colleges of Education in the country.’

Some of the affected students expressed their frustrations and disappointment saying after paying huge sums of money, they did not know how to explain the situation to their parents and guardians.
