UNIZIK matriculates 7,000 students

About 7,000 stu­dents who were offered admis­sion by Nnamdi Azikiwe University, Awka for the 2016/2017 academic ses­sion weekend participated in the matriculation cer­emony of the institution.
Addressing the stu­dents at the occasion in Awka, the Vice Chancel­lor of the university, Prof Joseph Ahaneku, said his vision for the institution is to raise its visibility to be among one of the best 500 universities in the world, among the best 100 in Africa and the best in Nigeria.
He said the manage­ment is harnessing all resources, human and material, from within and outside the university in the pursuit of the actuali­sation of the goal.
Ahaneku revealed that the school has instituted a work-aid scheme of N10,000 to assist some indigent and physically-challenged students as well as a Group Personal Insurance Scheme cov­ering death, permanent disability or illness of stu­dents or sponsors.
“We have linkages with 18 world renowned uni­versities spread across the United States of America, China, Europe and Africa, as well as six local institu­tions. The essence of the linkages is to facilitate academic programme de­velopment, teaching/re­search, public service and staff/student exchange” he added.
While warning the students to shun cultism, certificate forgery and all forms of examination mis­conduct, the VC stressed the need for prompt pay­ment of fees as well as at­tendance to lectures by the students to avert the atten­dant consequences.
