The Vice-Chancellor of Lead City University, Ibadan, Prof. Kabiru Adeyemi, yesterday, urged the students of the institution to be security-conscious and embrace the right values.
Adeyemo spoke at the 16th matriculation ceremony of the school where 1,515 were admitted officially to the school for various programmes.
The Vice-Chancellor also urged the students to shun violence, adding, “You should be security-conscious at all times and if you have any inclination that you are being lured, harassed or threatened, do not hesitate to report to the University admintration through my office, the Registrar, the Dean of students, hall masters/mistresses and wardens , HODs or Deans of Faculties as well as security unit.
“Students are urged to shun violence and criminal conducts, indecent dressing and drug abuse. The dangers associated with the use of these drugs are numerous.
Academic performance suffers greatly from the use of these drugs and graduating with a decent grade may be incompatible with regular drug use.
“I also urge you to get involved in positive student activities that would enable the University to pass through you, so that at the end of your academic career you would have evolved into a rounded personality that is worthy in character and learning and with a better perception of life’s values.
“I implore you to say yes to positive role models, creativity and innovation, entrepreneurship, youth empowerment, and leadership if you are convinced beyond every reasonable doubt”.
