“I wish to admonish you all today to shun all social vices such as riot, looting, arson, cultism, disobedience, examination malpractice, drug abuse, drunkenness, cheating, disrespect for constituted authorities, and indecent dressing, among others.

“You should all try to maintain and sustain the peace you met on campus.

“Do not be delighted in turning the campus into a jungle, you should respect the sanctity of the Polytechnic community.

“For your information, the Polytechnic will not treat with kid gloves any threat to campus peace.

“The Polytechnic detests cheating in examination in any form and will not hesitate to take immediate action on such matter.

“Also, cultism is an aberration in this Polytechnic, in your own interest you are advised to be of good behavior throughout your studentship.
