The University of Abuja has matriculated about 3900 newly admitted students for the 2016/2017 academic session.
The Vice Chancellor of the University of Abuja, Prof. Michael U. Adikwu, speaking during the ceremony, urged the 3900 newly matriculated students to seize the opportunity provided by the academic environment to prepare themselves for the task of nation building.
He mentioned that Nigeria is passing through some hard times, which included the incidents of youth unemployment and therefore urged students to rise to the challenge by being creative from day one in the university.
He advised the students to shun vices cultism, examination malpractices, truancy, and extremism in whatever guise and be self-disciplined as that’s what is needed for a serious academic pursuit.
