Vice Chancellor of Nnamdi Azikiwe University Awka (UNIZIK), Anambra State, Professor Charles Okechukwu Esimone, has called on the newly-admitted students into the university to be of good behaviour to achieve their future dreams shunning all kinds of vices. 

“To successfully end with the acquisition of a university degree in the institution, you owe certain obligations to the university, your parents and yourselves,” he said.

The VC gave the admonition at the 2023/2024 matriculation ceremonies for fresh undergraduate students of the university recently.

While he warned the matriculates to desist from examination malpractice, he said: “Examination misconduct could fetch a culprit suspension for up to three years and even expulsion, while any student found to have registered with fake certificates would be expelled from the university.”

Describing cultism as an anathema in the university, the VC said all proven cultists were expelled.

He added, “Other deviant behaviours such as robbery, rape, among others, are not tolerated for these are both misconduct and crime punishable by expulsion in the university and terms of imprisonment by the state.”

While congratulating the new students on their admission, he enjoined them to, at all times, during their stay in the university, remember why they are there, adding that, “I pray that your stay in the university ends with a degree of the university.”

Speaking about the academic programmes of the university, Professor Esimone explained that Nnamdi Azikiwe University is a conventional university, with 15 faculties and the academic programmes, of which most are variously accredited with the National Universities Commission (NUC) and other relevant professional bodies such as Quantity Surveyors Registration Board of Nigeria, Estate Surveyors and Valuers Registration Board of Nigeria (ESVARBON); Council of Registered Builders’ of Nigeria (CORBON); Surveyors Council of Nigeria (SURCON): and Nursing and Midwifery Council of Nigeria, among others.
