Shun cultism, social vices – Gov Emmanuel warns Varsity students in Akwa Ibom – The governor of Akwa Ibom State, Udom Emmanuel has once again warned university students against engaging in cultism and other social vices capable of truncating their academic pursuit.
The governor gave the warning on Thursday during the commissioning of the Petroleum Oil and Gas Automation Training Laboratory of Ibom Metropolitan Polytechnic which was part of the activities marking the matriculation ceremony of the institution.
Recall that Gov Emmanuel had in 2020, signed an Executive Order proscribing cultism and other violent behaviours in the state.
The governor represented by the Commissioner for Education, Mrs Idongesit Etiebet urged the students to focus on their studies as they are expected to be part of those that will provide the manpower for industries in the state.
His words, “graduates from this polytechnic will be part of those that will provide the manpower for industries in the state, therefore, there is every need for you to study hard, shun cultism and other social vices capable of truncating your academic pursuit in the institution.”
On his part, the Rector of the polytechnic, Engr. Nnamonso Akpabio charged the students to conduct themselves well and make good use of the opportunity provided by the institution reiterating that the Academic Board and Management under his watch will not tolerate cultism, examination malpractice, indecent dressing, stealing and insubordination.
