As a way of discouraging social vices in the country’s tertiary institutions, Chairman, National Association of Nigerian Students, NANS and Joint Campus Committee, JCC, Delta state Axis, Comr Dio Oghale Emeka Rex, has advised students in Nigeria tertiary institutions to devoid themselves of actions capable of destabilizing the educational sector, particularly those involving cultism.
Dio Oghale Emeka Rex, who gave the charge on Monday, Oct 29, 2018, noted that the spate of academical backwardness and lack of attention exhibited by students was becoming worrisome, thereby urging managements of all tertiary institutions nationwide to place a thorough surveillance in their students, thereby making sure that the bad eggs doesn’t infiltrate the good ones.
According to him, he said: ” Higher institution as we all know supposed to be a learning ground for all intending youths who wishes to reach the final stage of their academical pursuit, and not a place of immoral gang ups and sponsoring of activities with the capacity of crumbling the manageable and dilapidated education system of the country.
Institute of learning ought to be a ground where students acquire the desired knowledge that will help them seek for better life after graduation, and also place them on a pinnacle of respect, honour, high esteem and recognition which will differentiate them from those who could not have the opportunity of going to school”.
He also, said that the rate at which the county was mishandling the education sector was becoming unbearable, thereby imploring the federal government of Nigeria to invest more in the sector more than every other sector in the nation’s economy, as he hinted that a country that does not have a standard educational facilities is bound to collapse at the expense of bad governance and ignorance.
While appealing to the Buhari led administration to invest more in the education sector, Dio Oghale Emeka Rex, asserted that nothing was more important to the nation’s young and vibrant generation than gaining a sound and quality education, which he opined would open all doors to sustainable development, allay social vices and place the youths in a state of self rehabilitation and psychological normalcy.
