Federal University Kashere warns matriculating students against cultism

The Vice Chancellor Federal University Kashere, Gombe State, Professor Umaru Pate, has cautioned newly matriculated students to steer clear from cultism and other anti-social behaviors.

Pate gave the warning on Thursday at the 13th Matriculation of 3,849 newly admitted students for the 2022/2023 academic session.

He said the students admitted in the institution represented less than half of the number of applicants that chose it as first choice in their UMTE and DE JAMB applications.

Giving the breakdown of the figures, Pate said that Faculty of Agriculture admitted 131 students: Education 698, Humanities 258, Social Sciences 1,058, Management Sciences 428 and Sciences 1,276.

He said that all the students had successfully completed their registration and documentation processes with the relevant units of the university.

The VC said the university had adopted proactive measures to address accommodation challenges being faced by the new students.

“Two of our big hostel projects are ongoing as we rehabilitate another building outside the campus for temporary use.”

He further stated that seven of the programs in the institution that took off in 2021 would soon be due for full accreditation by the National Universities Commission (NUC).

Pate said: “We have made significant progress in our effort to establish a College of Medical Sciences in the university.

“Laboratories for foundational medical program like Anatomy, Biochemistry and Physiology had been constructed.”

The VC, however, warned the students that the university has zero tolerance for all forms of social vices like examination malpractice, drug abuse, cultism, sexual and gender-based violence, fake news, among others.

“Don’t get involved in online scam or what is commonly referred to as the Yahoo-Yahoo scam.

“You will bear the full consequences of any unacceptable conduct in whatever form,” he said.

While congratulating the students, Pate lauded Gombe government and security agencies for the prevailing peace in the state.

The VC admonished the newly admitted students to be security conscious, adding that, “security is everyone’s business; help us to protect and secure our campus and community.”
