The Federal College of Education (Technical), Akoka, Lagos, has matriculated three hundred and eleven fresh students into degree programs for the 2018/2019 academic session in affiliation with the University of Benin in Edo state.
Mr. Ephraim Dada, Acting Provost of the College, urged the fresh students to avoid actions that could seriously affect their studies and to strive hard for academic excellence and the good of the society.
“The university and college have philosophies and values upon which they were established to provide quality science, vocational and technical education to students, who in turn will impart the knowledge to the larger society.
“To accomplish this, it is pertinent that you pay particular attention to academic excellence, set high academic and moral standards for yourselves and remain focused. For your academic excellence, you are required to cultivate the habit of attending lectures regularly and punctually,” he stated.
The Vice Chancellor of the University of Benin, Prof. Osasere Orumwense, said that the university had already recognized the certificates that the students would receive from the College.
The VC, who was represented by the Dean of the Faculty of Education at UNIBEN, Prof. Ede Iyamu, said, “You cannot afford to gamble with this rare opportunity of being admitted to the University of Benin because it requires you to be serious, focused, determined, diligent and disciplined.”
