No fewer than 1, 500 students took their oath of matriculation during the Federal University Of Lafia 2016/2017 Matriculation Ceremony held on February 1st, 2017.
The Vice Chancellor, Professor Muhammad Sanusi Liman Speaking during the recently held 2016/2017 matriculation exercise at the University’s Take-Off Campus in Lafia warned students to shun anti-social behaviours such as cultism and drugs addiction and take advantage of “our university’s learning and extra-curricular facilities to develop themselves”.
For students who may wish to offer money and or sex for marks, Federal University Lafia (FULafia) is the wrong place for them to be and study, said the Vice Chancellor.
He said to the students that it was only by dedicating themselves to their books that they would reap the benefit of their stay in FULafia. He said: “By doing so, you make your stay in the University meaningful and useful to your academic careers and a source of satisfaction and pride to your parents and guardians as well as the country as a whole”.
Prof. Liman revealed that plan were underway to establish new faculties and programmes in the fields of education, management, environmental and medical sciences and engineering at the university. He called on matriculating students to work hard and abide the university’s rules and regulations.
“I call on you to dedicate your time to your books, despise habit of tweeting and posting on social media, to make worthwhile your stay at FULafia.”
The Vice Chancellor saluted parents for their sacrifice which he said had enabled students “to witness this momentous day in their academic development.”
