Ajayi Crowther University (ACU) Oyo, Management urges students who have just been accepted into the institution to be aware of social immorality while on campus.

Management says that in order to have a smooth and hassle-free academic journey on campus, freshmen should avoid distractions like examination Mal-practice, cults, bullying, sexual harassment, etc.

The university’s vice-chancellor, Professor Timothy Adebayo, noted that the institution disliked all forms of offence, adding that such offenses carry appropriate penalties.

He made the remarks on Friday while addressing the institution’s graduation ceremony for 721 students admitted in the 2021-22 academic year to pursue a 39-year undergraduate program accredited by the Nigerian University Commission (NUC), and two diplomas.

He directs graduates to benefit from ACU’s investment in entrepreneurship education and professional training in 17 different skills such as electrical works and wiring, auto mechanical work, metal works and welding, woodworks and carpentry, masonry and block making, creative arts, music recording and sound engineering, computer hardware repair, tailoring, fashion design, solar energy design and installation, home appliances repairs, poultry farming, cosmetology, catering and confectionary, paint production and household consumables production.

“Ajayi Crowther University seriously condemns any form of wrongdoing. Strict action has been taken against students who take even a rough part in the exams.

“In addition, sexual immorality and/or other deviant behavior will not be tolerated in the ACU. The culture promoted here is one of excellence in spirit and soul.

“To uphold the moral principles of this university, students must always dress modestly. The university does not like indecent behavior and strong action is taken against wrong students,” Adebayo added, praising the institution for the stable calendar and commendable progress made at the university.

Correspondingly, a consultant psychiatrist at the University College Hospital, Ibadan, Dr. Victor Makanjuola who gave a lecture on matriculation also urged the graduates to be aware of the “banana peel” which could harm their education.

He points out that banana peels include cults, alcoholism, substance abuse, cyberbullying, rape, sexual harassment, cybercrime, pool betting, and gambling addiction, among others.

On drug abuse, Makanjuola said: “Young people like you tend to abuse drugs. Some have been discovered even before they are accepted into the institution.

“Watch out for cookies, brown rice, joloffs, etc. you don’t know where they come from. They are being laced with cannabis.”

He also urged students to take advantage of learning opportunities and engage in extracurricular activities without losing their learning objectives.

“Avoid all the banana peels mentioned above and others that you may come across on your own. Dedicate each day of your stay on campus to God and pray for wisdom and guidance from heaven,” he advised the matriculants.

Among the high-ranking officials who attended the event were the Vice Chancellor, Prof. Muyiwa Popola; Chancellor, dr. Judesola Babatola; Scholarship, Mr. Ayodele Olusanwo; librarian, dr. Beatrice Fabunmi and other senior university officials.
