The V.C advised the successful applicants who are admitted into the Institution to make the best use of the opportunity by studying hard to prepare themselves for the future.
He charged the fresher (newly admitted students) to shun all forms of crime including stealing, cultism and examination malpractice as this could results to expulsion from the University.
“The university has zero tolerance for cultism; anyone caught involved in cultism will be expelled and thereafter prosecuted,’’ Prof. Azuzu warned.
