The Vice Chancellor of the University of Nigeria (UNN), Prof. Benjamin Ozumba, has advised the newly admitted candidates of the Joint Universities Preliminary Examination Board (JUPEB) to shun anti-social behavior while on campus.
According to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), the institution’s Vice Chancellor gave the advice in Nsukka on Friday at the orientation organized for the nine hundred candidates admitted for the 2018/2019 academic session.
“My advice to you is to eschew all forms of anti-social behavior, like cultism, violence and sharp practices. Rather, read your books and make the university/JUPEB handbooks your inalienable companion.
“We have competent and committed JPEB management board that will assist you to realize your dream of transiting into the regular program of the UNN,” the VC stated.
The Vice Chancellor, who was duly represented by the Deputy Vice Chancellor (Administration), Prof. Charles Igwe, said that the university joined JUPEB program in October, 2014.
“We admitted 294 pioneer candidates during the 2014/2015 academic session and since then, many candidates that met required grades in the JUPEB exam have been admitted into UNN regular program.
“Before I bow out as the VC of the university in June, I will approve a permanent site for JUPEB program,” the VC stated.
