Twerking: “Our degrees are for students with good character” – UNN



 University of Nigeria Nsukka (UNN) has said it set up a panel to investigate the recent viral video involving its student twerking half-clad, insisting that it will only offer its degrees and certificates to students “found worthy.”

The university reiterated that it would not condone indecency and other morally reprehensible behaviours from its students.

“UNN degrees and certificates are awarded only to those who have been found worthy, both in character and in learning,” added the statement. 

 UNN’s spokesman Okwun Omeaku disclosed this in a statement issued on Tuesday.

The university explained that the panel would investigate the circumstances surrounding the incident, noting that the panel’s report would guide further action to be taken by UNN on the issue.

“The management of UNN, as a result of a recent viral video in social media, involving un-clad female student twerking in front of Akapbio hostel, has set up a panel to investigate circumstances surrounding the video,” the statement explained. “Further action to be taken by the university on the issue will be guided by the findings and reports of the panel.”

According to the UNN statement, preliminary findings revealed that Mirabel Obi, a first-year female student is from the Department of Medical Laboratory Science.

“We urge the general public to disregard reports that the affected student had been suspended or expelled. The public should also ignore any comment suggesting a pre-determined punishment for the student, as she will be given fair hearing by the panel,” it added.

Ms Obi had accused the institution of harassing her and destroying her belongings.

“I wasn’t expelled. I repeat. I was only harassed without being heard from. The authorities badged into my hostel and ransacked my properties,” the embattled UNN student lamented. “A lot of my properties have been damaged, and some are nowhere to be found. How do you invade someone’s privacy?”

The embattled student also insisted that she had the right to twerk.

“Twerking has nothing to do with my academics as you can’t make become a medical student in UNN without passing 300 and above in your JAMB,” she argued. “I am still very serious, and I know how to balance my social and academic life.”

A viral video showed her twerking in a bodysuit during a dance competition for N30,000 last week.

The video enraged the Dean of Student Affairs, Edwin Ogechukwu Emeje, who vowed to expel her for soiling the university’s image.

However, Ms Obi has dismissed Mr Omeje’s remarks, insisting in an Instagram post that the school lacks the power to expel her for twerking.

She added that it was in no way a violation of the school’s rules and regulations.

How to Calculate University of Lagos (UNILAG) Aggregate Score for Admission 2022

In order to calculate your UNILAG Post-UTME  aggregate score, the formula adopted by the institution is the sum of  your UTME score divided by eight (8) and your Post-UTME SCORE score divided by two (2). For example: If you scored 290 in UTME and went on to score 20 in Post-UTME, your aggregate score will be calculated thus: UTME Score = 290/4 = 72.50 Post-UTME Score = 20/30 * 100 = 66.67 Aggregate Score = (72.50 + 66.67)/2 = 139.17/2 = 69.59% Don’t get confused, it’s true that the number of Post-UTME questions are usually between 30 to 50. So, you might want to ask, how is it possible for me to score 66.67 in Post-UTME?

Let’s say, for example you score 15/30. It will be the same as 15/30 multiplied by 100/1 which is equal to 50/100. What ever is gotten over 100 is what will be added to your UTME scor
