By | On March 6, 2017 (8 months ago)

​University of Ilorin, UNILORIN matriculates 10,886 as Vice-

Chancellor tasks new students on excellence, discipline …

cautions against cultism, pornography.

The Vice-Chancellor of the University of Ilorin, Prof.

AbdulGaniyu Ambali (OON), has told the newly admitted

students of the institution to be committed to the ideals of

excellence, discipline, peace, stability and development for

which the University has been known for years.

He also cautioned them against cultism, unregistered groups

and associations, and watching pornographic films in and

outside the campus, warning that involvement in such

associations and activities would derail their academic

career and potential greatness.

These were the kernel of Prof. Ambali’s message to the new

students in his address at the Matriculation Ceremony of the

2016/2017 academic session last Wednesday (March 1,


In his address, entitled “New Beginning”, the Vice-Chancellor

told the students, “Equally, you don’t engage in examination

malpractice; don’t join unregistered groups and associations;

don’t dress indecently; don’t fight with anyone and don’t

disobey constituted authority. With these tips, you will

always be in good standing and even be outstanding in the


Congratulating the students for what he described as an

important milestone in their life, Prof. Ambali pointed out

that many had applied to study at the University but that only

a few were admitted because of the limited number of


The Vice-Chancellor advised the new students to see their

admission as a golden opportunity and to match it with a

corresponding responsibility, adding that no one can limit

them except they themselves. He said, “If you are target-

driven and goal-oriented, your average of four years in the

University will lay a solid foundation for your future.

Interestingly, the future is even now. Therefore, set your mind

to excel and by the grace of God, excellence shall be yours.”

Prof. Ambali informed the students that they would face

challenges in the course of their studies but assured them

that they would overcome because challenges are part of

life, noting that anywhere there is a problem or challenge,

opportunity is also present.

The Vice-Chancellor revealed that a total number of 110,675

candidates applied to study in the University in the last

Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) with

13,570 admitted while 10,886 eventually registered in keenly

contested but transparent admission exercise.

Prof. Ambali told the students that their set means a lot to

him because “you are the last set of students that will

matriculate under the Administration I am privileged to

head”. He said that their admission was a golden

opportunity that would launch them to lofty heights if

properly treasured.

He said, “I expect the best from you, our new students. I

expect nothing, but hard work, from you. There is no room

for vices here, once you are caught, you are gone”.

While administering the Matriculation Oath on the students,

the Registrar of the University, Mr. Emmanuel Dada Obafemi,

explained that the Matriculation is a solemn and sacred

exercise representing a contract between the students and

the University.

Mr. Obafemi, who was represented by the Deputy Registrar

(Academic Support Services), Mrs. R. A. Okojie, charged the

students to become great in their chosen career, adding that

the sky would be their starting point if they take heed to the

counsel given by the Vice-Chancellor in his address.

The programme was attended by the Principal Officers of

the University, Provost and Deans of Faculties, some

Directors of academic and non-academic units and a host of


A breakdown of the matriculated students show that the

Faculty of Education has the highest number of 2,442 fresh

students while the Faculty of Veterinary Science, with 40

registered new students, has the least.
