Vice Chancellor urges undergraduates to imbibe good morals (


MINNA – The Vice-Chancellor of Federal University of Technology, Prof. Musbau Akanji, has advised youths in Nigerian universities to imbibe the values of good morals and shun violence and other social vices.

Akanji gave the advice on Friday when he received members of the Association of the Nigerian Universities Chaplains who were in the University for their Annual Retreat.

Represented at the event by the Deputy Vice Chancellor (Academic), Prof. Abdullahi Bala, Akanji said that no society could achieve peaceful co-existence without love for one another.

Akanji said that violence such as bombing, kidnapping and others in the country were mostly done by the youths who often blame poverty and lack of job for their involvement in such acts.

Akanji said irrespective of societal challenges, when people were morally and religiously grounded, such thoughts would not arise.

He advised youths to face life challenges with courage and dignity.

The vice chancellor said that the role of chaplains in moulding the moral values of students on campus could not be over emphasised.

He said that the management of the university would provide them with the necessary support to carry out the task of grooming responsible students for the society.

Akanji said that university degrees were awarded to students after being found worthy in character and in learning and urged stakeholders to play their part in ensuring proper moral upbringing of youths.

Vice President of the association, Ven. Makun Solomon, thanked the university for accepting to host the association’s annual retreat.

He said that the association and the university management were partners in progress in the effort to ensure proper moral education of students during their short stay on campus.

“It is the desire of the association that people, who pass through the institutions will become better professionals in the larger society.” (NAN)
