Cocaine mess update: Redeemers' Univeristy re-admits students

In February 2013, 28 students of Redeemers University were expelled by the university for allegedly failing drug tests. The tests were conducted last November for 42 students during their exam. The expulsion generated a lot of criticisms causing the school to rescind its decision in April. The school wrote letters to the affected students asking them to face a panel to explain why they failed the test, after which the panel would make a new judgement.

Well, the school has reviewed the case and has decided to re-admit all 28 students on the condition that the students will miss a whole semester and go for five month rehabilitation at a rehab centre. A decision that didn't go down well with the affected students and their parents.

Wow, only in nigeria that students will be re-admitted after failing a drug test. To make it worse instead of the parents to be upset that their kids are drug addicts and they should enter a rehab ASAP, they are angry at school officials. WOW, what has really happened to the parental responsibilities in this supposed conservative country. Oh i almost forgot a country where parents buy degree certificates for their kids. Well done future generations. hahahahaha!!!!!!

Kids,DON'T DO DRUGS!
Its ok for unis to try to uphold a high moral standard but truth is,kids will be kids.
If they don't experiment with drugs now then when would they?

Rosie Said......These Nija parents sef? Your kids tested positive to cocaine,I did not see any denials that the results were wrong rather you want your kids to be rewarded by the school authorities by doing nothing. Pls take your spoilt kids to rehab..... And to Redeemers University,do not re-admit them until they are clean,Period.

Its great..you guys shouldn't talk trash about the school. Over in the US some organizations conduct random drug tests and if you fail you loose your job. Its best the learn now than later when its too late. We're not trying to raise a society full of cocaine users. Rccg has good drug rehab programmes ..I've heard testimonies about them.. More grease to their elbows!

Am not surprised. Their is drug endemic among most teenagers everywhere now. Bois don't do bars no more. Na chemist fit do am now o. 9 out of 10 undergrad bois of any schl private or not uses cough syrup or Sk, or had used at a point in time. Crack cocaine too is fast spreading. This bois sees nothing untoward in this habit as its helps them repress reality, will becomes converted to auto pilot mode and slows dem slow. Watch out for any youth tha stares into pace for hrs motionless.

What arrant nonsense! Why do our "so called" higher institutions keep humiliating these "supposed" adults/students by treating them like children/idiots!

These children shld be allowed to choose their own ways/destinies and not be frog matched into one! Kenny

At least the one you attended isn't better. Imagine your child, being a drug addict α̲̅πϑ you have an institution trying to curb such a problem in order to breed future leaders of tomorrow α̲̅πϑ you call it a glorified secondary school. Think again please. It is either you never had the opportunity this kids have or you envy the fact their parents can pay huge sum of money for their kids to become good. For christ sake it's a missionary tertiary institution where Godliness, good conduct α̲̅πϑ brilliance should be the benchmark. People like you are satanic leftists α̲̅πϑ fault finders. Renew your mind for a better Nigeria.

Why should they experiment with drugs? since when has taking or "experimenting" with drugs become a criteria for growing up or being a youth? Don't you know that allowing or being lenient with drug abuse brings about other accompanying social ills like cultism, hooliganism, etc? and you are wondering why the school is so strict in upholding a certain standard. if the kids want to be crack heads, there are scores of other schools they can attend in naija.

It is such a painful thing what we have turned ourselves all into. Charity starts from home. Parents, take up the responsibilities and lead your kids the right way to go.it is not only because of today but tomorrow. The school was fair though but not fair enough.its so strange... They proferred a rehab and a semester lost and parents complained! They ought to be role models and not disgrace even to the school, the educational system and our country. Some things are just not right! They are fundamental!

if it were to be CU, i can bet dat ur schooling is definitely over. you woud not be warned sef, taking drugs is synonymous to murder. straight expulsion @9ja_Stalker

Thank you very much for this comment. I am a product of this school and I really appreciate what they have been doing. This is the first time they are recalling students and that is a sign of softness in the aspect of enforcing discipline. We do not want riff raffs to be our products because we have high esteem and intergrity to protect. Anyways, its all good for those that were called back... They had better face what they were sent there to do.

Anonymous said...

Has anyone considered whether the results of these tests were not found to be valid? Who carried out the tests and under what conditions? Maybe the students involved were not actually using these drugs? Why else would they have such a reaction and be fighting for re-admittance etc. I sincerely doubt the parents are that stupid to seek all sorts of redress if their children were infant independently verified to be using drugs. And as for the university , how does being suspended affect the future chances of drug use?

Am sure the rehab is for the good of the students even the parents cos if they go worse in the longrun,dey wld surely regret it.newaiz,I wish them the best!

You're obviously high on something stronger than cocaine for you to say this rubbish!!!!!!Big fool!
So they should allow immature "adults" to destroy their lives because they can't choose to be different! Note that it a Christian uni,u imbecile!
If the "students" want to take drugs they should have gone to federal and state universities where the government doesn't give a damn about their psychological well being!...IDIOT!...plz take a sit if u don't have anything sensible to say !!!..okay?

With due regards you all cursing these schools should shut your mouths these private schools actually make things and new generation Nigerian students better.If there were no private schools I'm sure we will more x3 of crime in nigeria. A rehabilitation center is used to correct.Imagine if ther were no school like these, the students will continue with drugs and end up in yaba left. Its only stupid and senseless people that will see somtin good and not appreciate it, better work hard and save money soo that schools like these ones will help you train your child bcos I know ppl like you that criticise private schools don't know how to raise children.

Hmmm, if u find ursef in Rome behav like d Romans. If u find ursef in Redeemers University, u av gat b behave like a Redeemer. My point is evry institution in a society has its set rules n regulations- if u knw u can't live by it, kindly leav n find somwhere else. I dint go t a private university but graduates of private university can beat me down moral wise. Private Uni. or not, pikin wey go misbehave go misbehave- ur parents can only guide u but can't live ur life f u. Peer pressure is still d strongest of all pressure esp f youths so parents nids t really work hand in hand wt d educational institution t bring out d best in d future leaders of 2moro.
