Hinting that the University Senate would soon come up with sanctions against indecent dressing, he urged students to dress responsibly.
“A university is a community of decency and moral decorum. It is a knowledge industry that transforms insipid people into jewels found worthy in character and learning,” Professor Iwe said.
He further warned that the university, in line with its zero tolerance for indecent dressing, cult activities, and other anti-social vices, would not hesitate to discipline any student indulging in any of such unholy act.
“University is not a society for rascals or a hub for acts of prostitution,” he added, urging students to also shun cultism.
The VC who further warned against examination malpractice, said that anyone caught in the act risked rustication.
He encouraged students to take their studies seriously and aspire for greatness.
“Embrace the values of honesty, respect and academic diligence; do not be content with mediocrity; strive for greatness; challenge yourselves to push beyond your limits and unlock the boundless potentials that reside in you,” he added
He noted that the university Management had made some improvements to transform the institution.
The VC advised parents and guardians on the prompt payment of their wards’ charges for efficient service delivery.
