The management of Ignatius Ajuru University of Education (IAUE) in Port Harcourt recently honoured hardworking students from various faculties of the school who had achieved high Cumulative Grade Point Average (CGPA) with one laptop computer each.
The honour which was the first time since the history of the University was one of the motivational strategies of the management to encourage 2,775 fresh students who were taking their oaths of matriculation, the same day.
Presenting the laptop computers to decorated students, the Vice Chancellor of the university, Prof, Rosemund Dienye Green-Osahogulu said the honour was to motivate the new students and others who are not taking their studies seriously.
She said the university would continue to honour hard work as to achieve its dream of training quality teachers that will be seen as role model.
She called on the fresh students to be motivated by the honour as the school will not accommodate dull brains who indulge in evil cultism and outright sexual promiscuity.
Prof. Rosemund: “We believe that the award presented to the outstanding students will send a signal to those taking oath of matriculation today. You have to note that the degree of this university will only be awarded to those worthy in character and learning.
“You must avoid any act that will initiate you into blood servitude or to indulge in sexual aberration. Because this university is a centre of intellectual and moral excellence and not a breeding ground for perpetrators of social vices that would be a threat to the society.”
