“It is a great privilege to me as you’ll be the first set of students I will be matriculating.
“You are one of the lucky few out of over twenty thousand candidates that applied for admission into this University.

The Vice Chancellor used the opportunity to charge the student to be of good conduct and shun all unethical behaviours, as there will be dire consequences for anyone caught engaging in such acts.
“There is no room for unethical conducts. No room for sale of handouts by (lecturers). No room for examination malpractice, drug peddling and stealing (for students)”, he warned.
Prof. Suleiman invited the students to join in the vanguard to make the University a truly world class institution by ensuring that they shun all social vices and work hard to earn good grades.
“I have great plans for this University – to make it a world class institution where the graduates can work anywhere in the world.
“We’ll do this if we have a university culture that is guided by rules and regulations, where ICT drives teaching and learning”.
The Vice Chancellor as part of his strategic plan to nurture a 21st century institution, said the University’s ICT infrastructure is currently and entirely being overhauled, saying that in the next few months students will enjoy a campus wide internet connectivity.
