The Rector, Yaba College of Technology (YABATECH), Obafemi Omokungbe, has read riot act to fresh students admitted into the institution for 2018/2019 academic session, warning them against all forms of negative attitude such as absenteeism, indolence, disobedience, vandalism, violence and cultism.
He gave the warning during the matriculation of college in which no fewer than 18,131 students undertook the matriculation oath of the college. Addressing the students, Omokungbe implored them to adjust their lifestyle and activities to align with the dictates of the oath to enable them have a smooth and successful stay on campus.
“I implore you to also go through the Students Handbook to familiarise yourselves with the college rules and regulations,” he added. Giving the breakdown of the matriculating students, the Rector, however, disclosed that 10,440 were admitted into the National Diploma Full-Time and Part-Time programmes; 7,670 students into Higher National Diploma Full-Time and Part-Time programmes across the seven schools and 48 academic programmes run in the College of Sciences, Technology, Engineering and Management.
Describing matriculation as the high point of the commencement of the students’ contract with the college for the period of their tenure as students, he said that the oath confers on them the responsibility to abide by the rules and regulations of the college, as well as obeying constituted authority. Omokungbe, who counseled the students to be focus and avoid any form of distraction that could be detrimental to their ambition, hinted that students who failed to meet 75 per cent attendance at lectures would not be eligible to write semester examinations. He noted that membership of recognised students societies and organisations as well as associations is voluntary, but advised that the students should discern the groups they chose to join on campus since cultism and cult-related activities are highly prohibited in the college.
This was as the Rector insisted that any student caught in the act would be dealt with in accordance with the extant law of the college, warning that the institution had zero tolerance for all forms of indiscipline. While pledging a hitch-free academic session, he added that the management would not condone any negative youthful disruptive exuberance, but solicited the cooperation of all stakeholders towards ensuring a smooth and stable academic session. The Rector noted: “The management has within available resources, ensured that students have conducive environment for learning and living on campus.
