ABU matriculates 13,000 students

Share This
Ahmadu Bello University (ABU) Zaria on Friday matriculated over 13,000 students for its 2018/2019 academic session.
Speaking at the matriculation ceremony at the Main Campus in Samaru, Zaria, Kaduna State, Vice Chancellor of the University, Professor Ibrahim Garba, called on the new students to shun any act that would endanger their stay in the institution.
While saying the students must abide with the rules and regulations of the University, Prof. Garba said the fresh intakes must consider themselves lucky to have gained admission to the university as only a little over 13,000 were admitted out of the more than 40,000 candidates that applied for admission.
His words: “You should, therefore, consider the admission as a special privilege. The matriculation oath which has just been conducted today is a ceremony that formally initiates you into the body of the university community.
“By this process, you have been formally accepted into Ahmadu Bello University (ABU) rules and regulations.”
The Vice Chancellor particularly advised the students to shun examination malpractice, cultism, drug abuse, indecent dressing and all forms of anti-social behaviour.
He assured them that the University has experienced and dedicated lecturers and supporting staff to train them to achieve future career ambitions.
“As fresh students, you should note that academic programmes in the university have maximum time frames within which must be completed.
“A student who could not complete his/her programme of study beyond the maximum period allowed or due to poor performance or unacceptable behaviour is compelled by regulation to withdraw from the programme and or the university.
“Ahmadu Bello University is an institution of great diversity in gender, ethnicity and religion and it is the largest and most cosmopolitan of all Nigerian universities,” he added.
