Provost tasks matriculating students on good morals
The Provost, Kwara State College of Education, Oro, Dr Olowonirejuaro Olayinka, has advised the 800 matriculating students of the institution to exhibit good moral to justify their parents’ efforts.
The Provost on Friday gave the advice during the college’s 36th matriculation held at the institution’s auditorium in Oro.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the matriculation was for the 2017/2018 academic session.
Olayinka urged the students to imbibe uprightness in their conduct in order to justify their parents’ huge investment on their education.
He told them that their capacity to attain a high level academic excellence depended to a larger extent on their attitude and lifestyle.
Olayinka, who enjoined the student to see their admission as a rare privilege, urged them to shun all negative tendencies and live above board.
The provost, while appealing to the student to take their study with seriousness, noted that they should not engage themselves in any act that would extend their stay beyond their academic duration.
“Our dear students, let me plead with you not to allow this privilege to slip away untilised.
“Under normal circumstances, the duration of your course is three academic sessions, but you can either prolong or cut-short your stay in this college depending on your attitude and lifestyle.
“To be in good standing, I urged you to shun all negative tendencies such as cultism, examination malpractice, disobedience to constituted authority, indecency and immorality in all forms.
“Remember that so much has been invested in you by your parents and you must not let them or yourself down,” he said.
Olayinka also expressed the college management’s readiness and commitment to promoting harmonious relationship among the students and other academic and non-academic staff of the college.
