Be Law-Abiding, Ibadan Poly Tells Matriculating Students



The management of The Polytechnic, Ibadan has issued a warning to freshly matriculated students to refrain from any behavior that would damage the institution’s reputation.

It stated that they must refrain from misbehaving in order to preserve the school’s hard-earned reputation.

Many candidates seeking admission into Polytechnics and Colleges of Technology in Nigeria claimed that the institution was the top-tier and most favored tertiary institution.

Speaking at the institution’s 2023/2023 students’ matriculation ceremony in Ibadan, the rector, prof. Kazeem Adebiyi, challenged the students to be accountable, receptive, and law-abiding in order to graduate with good grades.

He maintained the institution possesses unique positive image which is cherished dearly.

The image, according to him, was earned through hardwork, dedication to duty and strong sense of discipline among staff and students.

“The fact that moral decadence is visible everywhere destroying the moral of the society, a reputable tertiary institution will not close it’s eyes to it because few people believe that the crazy attitude encourage and tolerated by others should be embraced by all, the Polytechnic will not be part of it.

“Remember that you are today laying a foundation which must be solid enough to support the structure you are going to build on, whatever you are going to be in future, the foundation is being laid now, what you do today would determine your tomorrow.”

“I want to use this medium to advise you to spend your time wisely, using your time to ping or browse unnecessary is time wasting and could be destructive,” he said.

He noted that 11,183 students applied for National Diploma (ND) as either first or second choice out of which 6,435 were admitted.
