Prof. Suleiman Bala-Mohammed, Vice Chancellor, Nasarawa State University, Keffi, over the weekend warned the newly admitted students of the institution against cultism, examination malpractice and other vices.
The Vice Chancellor gave the warning during the 17th matriculation ceremony of the university for the 2018/2019 academic session.
Bala-Mohammed stated that cultism, examination malpractice and other social vices had affected the education sector negatively, hence, the need for all hands to be on deck in ending the menace.
He said that the university would not accommodate any negative acts, and would also deal decisively with any student fond engaging in them, to serve as a warning to others.
“You have been admitted based on merit and we have done the admission on the basis of fairness. Due process has been followed when admitting you.
“So, I congratulate you all for getting admission, and now that you have been matriculated, I advice you to abide by the school’s rules and regulations in your interest and in the interest of the education sector.
“We have zero tolerance for cultism, examination malpractice and other social ills. We are going to fish out and deal decisively with any student found in such negative acts,” the VC stated.
In an interview with pressmen, Grace Solomon, one of the newly admitted students, promised to abide by the university’s rules and regulations throughout her stay in the institution.
