Justify Parents’ Investments In Your Education, Oloyede Charges FUOYE Fresh Students
A call has gone to the seven thousand, three hundred new intakes of the Federal University, Oye-Ekiti, Ekiti State, to justify their parents’ huge investments in their education.
This charge was given by the Registrar of the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB), Prof. Is-haq Oloyede, at the sidelines of the 12th Matriculation of the University, which was held recently.
Prof. Oloyede, who was represented at the event by the Ag. Coordinator of the Ekiti State Office of the Board, Mr. Ebenezer Owolafe, urged the students to stay focused and shun anti-social activities that could derail their primary objective at the institution as they have to justify their parents’ confidence and huge investments in them.
Speaking with newsmen at the venue of the ceremony, the Registrar said, “It is not enough to get matriculated in an institution, because m any get matriculated but never graduated not for reasons attributed to acts of God but through peer pressure, indolence, cultism, incessant partying and clubbing, excessive religious activities, and students’ unionism, among others.
“The only way a child sent to school by a parent can make the parent happy and fulfilled is for the child to concentrate on his studies, and graduate not only with a good grade but also with good character and learning.”
In his address on the occasion, the Vice Chancellor of the University, Prof. Abayomi Fasina, attributed the success story of the institution to hard work and discipline, adding that based on the statistics from JAMB, FUOYE was one of the most-subscribed institutions in Nigeria in 2022, noting that such an achievement was unexpected given the short period of the establishment of the University.
