A call has gone to the seven thousand, three hundred new
intakes of the Federal University,
Oye-Ekiti, Ekiti State, to justify their
parents’ huge investments in their
education.
This charge was given by the Registrar of the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB), Prof. Is-haq Oloyede, at the sidelines of the 12th Matriculation
Ceremony of the University, which was held recently.
Prof. Oloyede, who was represented at the event by the Ag. Coordinator of the Ekiti State Office of the Board, Mr. Ebenezer Owolafe, urged the students to stay focused and shun anti-social activities that could derail their primary objective at the institution as they have
to justify their parents’ confidence and huge investments in them.
Speaking with newsmen at the venue of the ceremony, the Registrar said, “It is not enough to get matriculated in an institution, because m any get matriculated but never graduated not for
reasons attributed to acts of God but through peer pressure, indolence, cultism, incessant partying and clubbing,
excessive religious activities, students’ unionism, among others.”
“The only way a child sent to school by a parent can make such parent happy and fulfilled is for the child to concentrate on his studies, and graduate not only with a good grade but also with good character
and learning”.
In his address on the occasion, the Vice Chancellor of the University, Prof. Abayomi Fasina, attributed the success story of the institution to hard work and discipline, adding that based on the statistics from JAMB, FUOYE was one of the most-subscribed institutions in Nigeria
in 2022, noting that such an achievement was unexpected given the short period of the establishment of the University.
The Vice-Chancellor admonished the newly-matriculated students to distance themselves from all acts inimical to the image of the University as well as their families, stressing that the Senate of the
Institution would not hesitate to sanction any act capable of tarnishing the good reputation of the University.
He, therefore, urged the manipulating students to focus on their studies and shun all unwholesome activities capable
of bringing the name of the school to disrepute.
