A colorful matriculation ceremony held on the university campus in AdoEkiti saw the matriculation of over 4,000 newly admitted students to Ekiti State University, Ado-Ekiti for the 2021/2022 session. The historic ceremony was held both physically and virtually.
As a result, the Vice Chancellor urged them to take pride in having the chance to attend a school that currently has such an enviable place in the community of Nigerian Universities.
Professor Olanipekun Charged the new students to strictly follow the laid down guidelines for the payment of approved fees through the University portal. He further warned them to be wary of fraudulent cyber operators who are out to scam them, in order to avoid the unnecessary risk of paying fees into wrong hands.
The Vice Chancellor also charged them to live up to the matriculation oath which they had taken and asserted that EKSU, under his leadership, had zero tolerance to any form of anti-social behaviour, adding that any breach of the rules and regulations of the university would attract appropriate sanctions.
Earlier, the university Registrar, Mr. Ife Oluwole administered the matriculation oath on the students.
The high point of the ceremony was the announcement that all duly registered and screened students had been allocated matriculation numbers and identity cards automatically through the university portal.
Some names among the duly registered students were called, while the identity cards were displayed for them to sight. The students were excited with the innovation.
