Nigeria: Imsu Admits 4,000 Out of 90,000 Prospective Students

Owerri — Imo State University (IMSU) Owerri, has admitted 4,000 students out of 90,000 prospective Imo students who got the minimum requirement for admission in 2013.

Speaking at the university's matriculation ceremony on Friday in Owerri, the Vice Chancellor, Prof. Ukachukwu Awuzie, noted that only 10 per cent of the candidates was absorbed because of the approved admission capacity of the universities in the state.

He urged the students to work hard and shun cultism, indecent dressing, examination misconduct and truancy, adding that the university would not condone those vices.

"We assure you that our staff are your surrogate parents. Feel free to approach them if confronted with challenges," he said.

The VC also urged the parents to take special interests in the activities of their wards.

"They should seek to see your programme charts and must not abandon you to us alone," he said.
