“Any student who does not pay his/her fees by the appropriate time runs the risk of being excluded from examinations.

“For your stay in this university to successfully end with the acquisition of a university degree, you owe certain obligations to the University, your parents and yourselves.

“These obligations are summarized below: Payment of Fees. You must attend at least 75% attendance of all lectures and practicals for you to be allowed to write examinations”

The VC warned that examination misconduct could fetch culprit suspension for up to three years and even expulsion, while students found to have registered with fake certificates would be expelled from the university.

Describing cultism as an anathema in the university, the VC said all proven cultists were expelled.

He added, “Other deviant behaviors such as robbery, rape, etc are not tolerated for these are both misconduct and crime punishable by expulsion from the university and terms of imprisonment by the state.

While congratulating the new students on their admission, the VC enjoined them to at all times during their stay in the university to remember why they were there, adding, “I pray that your stay in the university ends with a degree of the university.”
