Muhammad Sanusi-Liman, the vice chancellor of Federal University Lafia, has appealed to students of the institution to curb their use of social media.
The VC said this during the sixth matriculation of the institution as it welcomed 1, 500 students for 2016/2017 academic session.
The professor said the number of students being matriculated was the highest since the inception of the institution in 2011.
“I urge you all the matriculated students to always work hard, dedicate time to your books, despite habit of spending endless time on the social media in order to make your stay at the university worthwhile,” the professor said.
He further implored the students to shun examination malpractice, drug abuse, cultism and indecent dressing amongst other campus social vices.
Sanusi-Liman said that the institution was working toward the accreditation of more faculties in education, management and environmental sciences, medical sciences, and engineering.
He added that the school management equally wants a more conducive environment for the students as it looks to address issues like inadequate lecture rooms, laboratories, electricity supply, water and inter-campus transportation.
