The Rector of Federal Polytechnic, Ede, Osun, Dr John Adekolawole, has warned the 6,857 newly admitted students of the institution against engaging in social vices.
Adekolawole gave the warning during the polytechnic’s 28th matriculation of the institution on Friday in Ede.
Listing the vices, the Rector said that the institution would not tolerate looting, arson, disobedience, examination malpractices, drug abuse, and indecent dressing, among others.
“You have a purpose for coming here. The purpose cannot be achieved through magic because the purpose is not magic.
“It is something you must constantly and consciously pursue and create with the right approach.
“The polytechnic detests cheating in examination in any form and will not hesitate to take immediate action on such matter.
“You are advised to be of good behaviour throughout your studentship,” he said.
He added that the school was not a fashion parade ground, therefore, dressing indecently would not be accepted, noting that it had a rigidly mandatory dress code which must be followed by every student.
