The Michael Okpara University of Agriculture, Umudike, (MOUAU) in Abia State has sworn in 5,615 students admitted into various academic programmes of the university for the 2016/2017 academic session.
The Vice Chancellor (VC), Prof. Francis Otunta, said at the 24th matriculation that the figure covers the university’s quota of 4,300 plus a 30 per cent attrition value decided by the Senate.
Prof. Francis Otunta expressed delight that despite the closure of some departments by the National Universities Commission (NUC), the institution was able to fill its quota.
He said that it was also gratifying that the university’s admission process was adjudged as one devoid of racketeering and other unwholesome practices, unlike what it used to be in the past.
The institution was rapidly, evolving as a centre of excellence, where training, research and community service were pursued to achieve national development.
He also charged the new students to abide by the rules and guidelines of the university and be focused on their studies;
“Our programmes and curricula are well structured and designed to bring to fore, the creative genius in you to enable you maximise your potentials, therefore, your duty is to avail yourselves of such a unique opportunity by regular attendance of lectures.”
He warned the students against unbridled freedom and anti-social behaviour such as cultism.
“However, this freedom is exercised within the ambit of the regulations governing the university which you are not expected to abuse or the university disciplinary measures will be evoked,”
“Cultism is a social menace that has eaten deep into the fabrics of the society, which also served as a breeding ground for criminal elements in society and we will not allow such to destroy the image of our university.
“Shun cultism, our university has no space, no place and no tolerance for cultists and cultism in its entirety, including indecent dressing by students, we have put measures to enforce the institution’s dress code.”
He further stated that the university was also taking steps to check prostitution among the female students, called “runs”, students engaged in for pecuniary interest or to hoodwink the lecturers into awarding undeserved marks.
