Not less than 10,000 students took an oath of matriculation into the University Of Benin during the 2016/2017 Matriculation Ceremony.
The Vice-Chancellor of the University of Benin (UNIBEN) Prof. Faraday Orumwense while speaking at the event gave notice that the institution would not entertain any form of illegal activities from the newly admitted students.
According to his speech below:
I am urging you all to obey the university rules and regulations as the authority has zero tolerance for any nefarious act and will apply sanctions against defaulters.
“I encourage you all to be decent and shun evil vices like exam malpractice, drug abuse, cultism, prostitution and immoral activities that may mar your academic activities in this institution,” he said.
The Vice Chancellor reminded the new students that they were selected out of the over 100, 000 students who applied for admission, as such they must take their studies very seriously.
