The Federal University Lokoja (FUL), has matriculated 1, 606 students for the 2017/2018 academic session with a warning to students to shun all forms of social vices such as cultists, indecent dressing, examination malpractice, sexual misbehavior and other fraudulent acts.
Speaking during the matriculation ceremony which took place on Tuesday, Vice Chancellor of the university, Prof. Angella Freeman Miri, congratulated the students on their successful admission after a rigorous exercise.
“I wish to draw your attention to the fact that this is the first stage of your intellectual journey through this great university.
“It is my hope that at the end of four years you will make a successful and triumphant exit from this university and the investment of your parent and guardians over the years would not be in vain,” the VC said.
She charged the students to take their academic work seriously in order for them to get the opportunity of acquiring university education.
The vice chancellor reminded the students that there is a minimum standard that every student must attain immediately after enrollment, adding that failure to meet up will attract withdrawal from the system hence the need for extra hard work.
According to her, the university has put in place all requirements for the students to be at their best academically with a well equipped library and a conducive learning environment.
“There is an alternative power supply each time we experience power failure from the PHCN; I assure you that power would be sustained especially in the night for our students to study.”
