Students of the Federal College of Education (Technical), Gusau have been warned to shun all forms of anti-social activities and misdemeanor such as cultism, examination malpractice, and other forms of undesirable behaviour that violates the rules and regulations of the college within and outside the campus.
The Acting Provost, Dr. Usman Ladan Kurya gave the warning during the matriculation of the 829 new students admitted into the institution for the 2017/2018 academic session, insisting that no student caught involving in such immoral activities would go unpunished. According to him, as teachers in training, they should strive to be upright in their character as they have strategic role to play in moulding the character of the younger ones by not associating with elements that may put them into trouble, disrupt their studies and jeopardise their future.
The Provost said: “I advise you to dissociate yourself from elements that may put you into trouble or disrupt your studies by involving in any form of anti-social activities and association such as cultism, drug abuse, violence, religious intolerance and the likes that have the potential of destroying your life or the lives of others.
“You should also be aware that the college has zero tolerance to poor attitude such as examination malpractice and other vices which are capable of destroying the established reputation and good image of this unique institution.” Usman, while administering the matriculation oath on the students also urged them to strive and justify the opportunity of securing admission into the college by working hard to achieve excellent results in their academic work.
He, however, told the students that the Nigerian Certificate in Education (NCE) certificate is a stepping stone to numerous opportunities available to them in life, and therefore implored them to use all possible legitimate means to achieve academic excellence. This was even as the Provost advised the students to develop and exhibit good moral behaviour so as to meaningfully contribute to the growth and development of society.
“You are also to note that the college will graduate and award its certificates to students who are found worthy of character and learning. In fact, the secret of the success of great people is wrapped with noble character, discipline, orderliness, commitment, dedication, perseverance and endurance,” the Provost stressed.
