MOUAU matriculates 5,615 students

No fewer than 5,615 students out of the 18,904 qualified candidates that seek admission into Mi­chael Okpara University of Agriculture, Umudike, (MOUAU), Abia State, for the 2016/2017 academic year have been admitted.
Vice Chancellor of the University, Professor Fran­cis Otunta, who stated this at the weekend during the 24th matriculation cere­mony of the institution, said the National Univer­sities Commission (NUC) only approves a quota of 4,300 candidates for the university and an attrition value, which the university senate decided to peg at 30 per cent bringing the total number of the matriculat­ed students to 5,615.
Prof Otunta who said he was grateful that the ad­mission process has been acclaimed as one devoid of racketeering and other unwholesome practices, insisted that the universi­ty’s programmes curricu­la are well structured and designed to bring to fore the creative genius in stu­dents.
He therefore charged the students to maximize their potentials and avail themselves unique op­portunity by regularly at­tending lectures as well as shunning vices such as examination malpractic­es, cultism, prostitution, indecent dressing, among others.
