No fewer than 3,690 students took their matriculation oath during the 2015/2016 academic session Matriculation ceremony of the Federal Polytechnic, Ado Ekiti held on Fiday.
Speaking at the event, the rector of the polytechnic, Dr Taiwo Akande, warned the newly admitted students to steer clear of cultism, fraud and other anti-social activities.
Akande noted that the era of just rusticating students found engaging in such acts of illegality and other related cases was over, saying any student caught in the acts would be prosecuted and send to jail .
She stressed that the institution would no longer condone any act of illegality, including cybercrime, cultism and illegal sale of bed spaces by students.
While urging the students against embarking on actions that could alter the academic calendar, she reminded them that doing so may prolong their stay in the institution and affect their lives collectively.
The rector disclosed that the institution has made the passing of all entrepreneurship courses a prerequisite for graduation in the institution, adding that this was conceived to widen the scope of the students to be able to cope under the present economic situation.
