Prof. Abdul-Rasheed Na’Allah, the Vice-Chancellor, University of Abuja (UniAbuja), has urged the newly admitted students of the university to refrain from drug abuse and cultism for a better future and healthy living.
Na’Allah, who gave the advice during the matriculation of 5,311 newly admitted students on Wednesday, charged them to be law-abiding and disciplined in line with their matriculating oath.
He urged the students to repose the confidence their parents had on them, assuring them of the university’s determination to provide an enabling environment for their academic pursuit.
“May I at this point, congratulate our dear parents and guardians for the success of your children in securing admission into this university?
“The fact that they have gained admission to the university does not take them out of range of parental care; parents should continue to counsel them against bad association and negative social influences,” he said.
He said that the university would continue to admit qualified students, recruit competent staff and ensure that they not only add value to the system but make the university proud.
On academics, he said all measures had been put in place to sanitise the overall academic activities and ensure the timely release of credible results by the university.
