Efforts to get the reactions from the Dean of the faculty proved abortive as he directed our reporter to the school PRO.
Nigerians on social media are reacting to the document in shock and disbelieve.
"They used to pride themselves in that school on having a high failure rate. The sadomasochistic logic is a rationalization of failure as proof of tough academic standards. I saw it firsthand in undergraduate days in the institution. A lot of lives were blighted and practically destroyed."

Abdul-Lateef Biola Abdul-Ganiyy:
"For Nigeria schools, the only way to make up for their lack of advanced pragmatic knowledge is to embellish the archaic outdated curriculum with resounding failure rate. It's the oxygen that keeps their ego alive."
"Students are expected by teachers and parents to earn their grades. I think it goes both ways. I don’t think teachers who are perpetually on strike while the students while away time on yahoo business should be blamed. Parents and of course the government should also be blamed."
