MOUAU: 5,615 students Matriculated

5,615 students out of the 18,904 qualified candidates that seek admission into Mi­chael Okpara University of Agriculture, Umudike, (MOUAU), Abia State, for the 2016/2017 academic year have been admitted.
Vice Chancellor of the University, Professor Fran­cis Otunta, who stated this at the weekend during the 24th matriculation cere­mony of the institution, said the National Univer­sities Commission (NUC) only approves a quota of 4,300 candidates for the university and an attrition value, which the university senate decided to peg at 30 per cent bringing the total number of the matriculated students to 5,615.
Prof Otunta who said he was grateful that the ad­mission process has been acclaimed as one devoid of racketeering and other unwholesome practices, insisted that the universi­ty’s programmes curricu­la are well structured and designed to bring to fore the creative genius in stu­dents.
He therefore charged the students to maximize their potentials and avail themselves unique op­portunity by regularly at­tending lectures as well as shunning vices such as examination malpractic­es, cultism, prostitution, indecent dressing, among others.
