The management of Adeyemi College of Education (ACE) in Ondo state has banned students from driving cars and riding motorcycles on campus.
NAN reports that the college broke the news in a circular dated April 15 and signed by Olufisayo Fakorede, its registrar.
According to Fakorede, the ban was necessary to safeguard the lives of people on campus from students who drive recklessly.
The registrar also said that the management had received several complaints from students and staff of the institution over the recklessness of some students who own cars and power bikes which necessitated the ban.
Fakorede disclosed that the ban takes immediate effect while enjoining students to comply with the directive.
“The college management has observed that students who own cars and power bikes drive their cars and ride their power bikes on campus with reckless abandon. Management has equally received complaints from both students and staff on this act of indiscipline,” the statement read.
“As a consequence of this, and in order to safeguard the lives of students and staff, management hereby bans students from bringing their cars or power bikes into the college premises. The ban is effective immediately.”
In March, Auchi Polytechnic in Edo state had also prohibited students of the institution from driving private cars on campus, citing intelligence reports.
