Dr. Pauline Ikwuegbu, Provost, Federal College of Education Eha-Amufu (FCEE) in Enugu state has warned the newly admitted students to shun cultism, examination malpractice and other social vices or face expulsion.
The Provost spoke during the matriculation ceremony of 1,700 National Certificate of Education (NCE) students and the 311 students who are the first batch of the institution’s degree programs.
Report revealed that the school is awarding degrees in affiliation with the University of Nigeria, Nsukka (UNN).
“Any student caught involved in cultism or any anti-social behavior will be expelled from the College. Remain focused on your studies as the school authority will not spare any student involved in cultism or anti-social behaviors.
“The College will give students the necessary encouragement and supports to enable them actualize their dreams.
“The 25th matriculation is unique in two ways – this is the first time we are matriculating the first batch of degree students who will be awarded UNN degrees on graduation, and the first time a female Provost will be conducting matriculation since the College was established in 1981.
“FCEE is grateful to UNN for accepting the affiliation request and to the National University Commission (NUC) for approving the College to run degree programs. Workers, students and management are excited on this historic achievement,” the Provost stated.
The Vice Chancellor of UNN, Prof. Ozumba, who was represented by the Dean, Faculty of Education, Prof. Dominic Ngwoke, urged the fresh students to be focused as UNN was known academic excellence locally and internationally.
