Professor Ahaneku, charged the students to abide by the rules and regulations of the school, urged them to work hard and be diligent in their studies, else they risk being thrown out of the institution.
“Students must pay their school fees as and when due to enable the university maintain the existing facilities and provide new ones, failing which the defaulting student will not be allowed to take their semester examinations,”he said.
