No fewer than 5,230 newly-admitted students of Adekunle Ajasin University, Akungba Akoko, Ondo State, Nigeria, for the 2016/2017 session, took Matriculation Oath today with the Vice Chancellor, Prof Igbekele Ajibefun, urging them to be good ambassadors of the University, their families, the nation and the world at large.
Addressing the matriculating students after the Matriculation Oath was administered on them by the Registrar, Mr. Sunday Ayeerun, Prof. Ajibefun said, “Adekunle Ajasin University has zero tolerance for indiscipline, vices, and crimes.
“As you take your Matriculation Oath today, I urge you to desist from vices such as cult activities, examination misconduct, armed robbery, kidnapping, rapé and violent tendencies that can rob you of your hard-earned studentship. I implore you to make a commitment today to be good ambassadors of the University, your families, the nation and the world.”
Congratulating the students on their admission, the VC said that 17,739 applicants chose AAUA out which 26 percent were admitted. He, therefore, asked them to consider themselves lucky to “belong to this paltry number.”
Prof. Ajibefun urged the parents and guardians of the matriculating students and other parents in AAUA to cooperate with the University in providing functional training to the students and to mould them to be responsible students and ultimately become valuable world citizens.
The VC reiterated that all the programmes being offered by AAUA are accredited by the National Universities Commission, NUC.
He added that the University is imbued with committed and hard-working academic and non-academic staff who are poised to helping students to achieve their academic goals. He urged the students to take advantage of the robust platform offered them by the University to be the best they could be.
