The Vice Chancellor of the University of Nigeria, Nsukka, (UNN), Professor Benjamin Ozumba, has advised newly admitted candidates of Joint Universities Preliminary Examination Board (JUPEB) to shun all anti-social behaviours while on campus.
Ozumba gave the advice in Nsukka on Friday during the orientation ceremony of JUPEB candidates admitted for the 2018/2019 academic session, saying its good academic record and good behaviour that would make them gain regular admission into the institution.
His words: “My advice to you is to eschew all forms of anti-social behaviours like cultism, violence and sharp practices but make the university/JUPEB handbooks your inalienable companion.
“We have competent and committed JUPEB management board that will assist you in realizing your life dream of transiting into the regular programme of UNN.”
The VC, who was represented by the Deputy Vice Chancellor Administration, Prof. Charles Igwe, said the university joined the JUPEB programme in October, 2014 with 294 pioneer candidates and increased the intake to 897 during the 2015/16 academic session. Many of the candidates who met required grade in the JUPEB exam, he said, had been admitted into UNN regular programme.
In a lecture titled “ Ethical Issues and Time Management” Prof Kenneth Ofokansi, the Chairman, Senate Ceremonial Committee, advised the candidates to manage their time very well and spend less time on social media and other things that would make them less focused in their studies.”
