Petroleum Training Institute, Effurun, Delta State has warned fresh students of severe consequences if caught peddling drugs and smoking Indian hemp on campus.

He said: “In order to ensure that our students study in conducive atmosphere, we have provided facilities and amenities that are of high quality and we shall continue to improve on their quality with the provision of more funds from the Federal Government of Nigeria.
“Our laboratories and workshops are second to none in Nigeria. Our library is a repository of current textbooks, journals and manuals and they are at the disposal of students. We also have e-library facility domiciled in the institute’s library. Our ICT centre offers a wide range of services that can cater for your needs, and I advise that students maximise the usage of our facilities. From this academic session, the institute would integrate e-learning platforms with physical modules and I implore students to brace to the realities of learning in the post COVID-19 pandemic,” he said.
