Sharing their experiences at the end of the one week examinations, the students who were visibly animated thanked the University for maintaining the academic calendar, stating that it has helped them to conclude their academic works in record time barring any academic lapses from individual students.
They further noted that their sojourn to the University has helped in shaping and preparing them to excel in life, stressing that they have been imbued with the relevant knowledge to succeed in a globalized economy.
Nnaji Chidinma of the Department of Biology/Microbiology/Biotechnology said: “FUNAI has led me to acquire functional knowledge, thereby exposing me to the realities of modern life”, promising to be a good ambassador of the University on graduation.
Amaka Anyaegbu Faith, of the Accountancy /Business Administration/Entrepreneurial Studies and Okechuku Prince of the Sociology/Psychology/Criminology and Security Studies departments respectively assured the University of their preparedness to meet the demands of the 21st century market, noting that they have been duly equipped and honed to soar like eagles in their respective fields.
Meanwhile the second semester 2016/2017 examinations for other students commenced yesterday.
Consequently, the Dean of Students Affairs, Dr. Charles Nkem Okolie has urged the students to shun any form of examination malpractices, capable of destroying their future in the University.
He urged them to rather arm themselves with the knowledge they have acquired since the beginning of the semester to make good grades in their various courses instead of breaking any of the University rules guiding the conduct of examinations.
He further encouraged them to avoid anything that would implicate them in the course of writing their examinations, adding that students without University identity cards and those indecently dressed would not be given access into the examination halls.
In the same vein, the Chairman of the University Examination Committee, Dr Omaka N. Omaka has assured the students of a hitch-free examination, noting that the Committee in collaboration with the Management has made all arrangement to ensure smooth running of the second semester examinations.
He however, advised them to abide by the relevant rules guiding examinations in the University, avoid malpractices and indecent dressing, which according to him could truncate their studentship in the University.
