Elizade University reads riot act to freshmen, tasks them on decorum
Vice Chancellor, Elizade University, Ilara-Mokin, Prof. Olukayode Amund, has urged the newly admitted students of the institution to shun violence and any anti-social activities that will thwart the vision and mission of the institution.
Amund said this during the eighth matriculation ceremony of the school, where about 300 students were admitted into the 30 fully accredited programmes of the institution.
He stressed that the university, in line with the vision of the founder, Chief Michael Ade Ojo, is committed to entrenching core values and becoming a world-class university with the state-of-the-arts facilities, equipment and reliable manpower.
“The university has continued to focus on her pursuit of becoming a globally competitive institution that produces entrepreneurial, innovative and ethical graduates as enshrined in our vision and mission to produce graduates with the appropriate skills and knowledge for the development of the nation and global competitiveness,” he said.
In the bid to widen the academic scope, he stated that “the university hopes to kick-start the postgraduate school, faculties of environmental design and management, pharmacy and the distance leaning centre by the next academic session.”
The VC, who read riot act to the freshmen, implored them to face their studies squarely and abstain from any indecent act that could tarnish the good image and reputation of the institution.
