Benin – The University of Benin (UNIBEN) on Friday matriculated 10,000 students for the 2016/2017 academic session.
The Vice-Chancellor (VC) of the institution, Prof. Faraday Orumwense, said at the event in Benin that the institution would not condone all forms of nefarious activities.
“I am urging you all to obey the university rules and regulations as the authority has zero tolerance for any nefarious act and will apply sanctions against defaulters.
“I encourage you all to be decent and shun evil vices like exam malpractice, drug abuse, cultism, prostitution and immoral activities that may mar your academic activities in this institution,” he said.
The vice chancellor reminded the new students that they were selected out of the over 100, 000 students who applied for admission, as such they must take their studies very seriously.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that some of the matriculating students appreciated the opportunity to study in the institution, promising to be law abiding.
