The University Registrar, Mrs. Kolo administering the matriculation oath on the students
The Vice-Chancellor of the Federal University of Technology, Minna, Prof. Musbau Adewumi Akanji, FNSBMB, FAS, has charged the newly admitted postgraduate students to be of high moral conduct and desist from any kind of examination misconduct in order to avoid unpleasant consequences.
The Vice-Chancellor gave this advice yesterday during the 3rd matriculation ceremony for postgraduate students of the institution held at the Centre for Preliminary and Extra-Mural Studies (CPES) Hall, Bosso Campus.
Prof. Akanji disclosed that good success cannot be dissociated from the personality of a person and that the personality of a person is revealed in his moral conduct, stating that the University would not tolerate any act of indiscipline from the newly admitted students and advised them to work hard from the onset in order to achieve their set academic goals.
“The subsistent policy for postgraduate programmes in this university is that any student whose Cumulative Grade Point Average (CGPA) at the end of the second semester of the first year is less than 2.50 for Master degree programmes and 1.50 for postgraduate diploma has to discontinue the programme”, he revealed.
The Vice-Chancellor urged the students to participate in students unionism, noting that it fosters social, cultural and academic interaction among members.
He noted that the University’s postgraduate programmes are highly competitive, adding that 1073 students that met the admissions criteria were admitted out of 2256 candidates that applied for admission, representing 47.6 percent.
The University Registrar, Mrs. Victoria Nnawo Kolo had earlier administered the matriculation oath on the students.
