Some students may have taken their desire for higher education too far as the University of Ilorin says no fewer than 108 fresh students of the institution were expelled for gaining admission through dubious means.
Prof. Abdulganiyu Ambali, the Vice Chancellor of the University, disclosed this on Monday while rubbing minds with the Kwara state commissioner of police, Mr. Sam Okaula.
Ambali said the desire to attend Unilorin has increased due to the stable academic calendar and culture of excellence prevalent in the university,
“This result in some candidates seeking illegal and unauthorized ways to gain admission into the university,” he said.
The VC pledged their support to the police and offered to send useful tips whenever they were available.
“We will volunteer any information you need to succeed,’’ the vice chancellor said.
He reiterated the university’s stance on zero tolerance for cultism and indecent dressing, stressing that these had helped to maintain sanity on the campus.
Ambali also gave an assurance that eligible personnel of the Force interested in higher education could take advantage of the opportunity provided by the university’s Centre for Peace and Strategic Studies.
The commissioner on his part commended the VC for the standard of the institution and gave the schools security personnel the nod for a job well done.
