University of Benin (UNIBEN) matriculated 10,353 students on Friday out of the 28,400 applicants who sat for its Computer Based Post UTME screening in 2015. The Vice Chancellor of the institution, Prof. Faraday Orumwense, disclosed this at the matriculation in Benin.
He stated the reason why the institution continues to receive large number of applications for admission on a yearly basis is due to its academic strides.
Orumwense congratulated the matriculating students for being among the lucky few who scaled through the various selection processes and urged them to work hard as students of the university.
“We are urging you all to obey the rules and regulations of the institutions as the University authority has zero tolerance for any nefarious act and may apply sanctions against offenders.
“I encourage you all to be decent and shun evil vices like cultism, drug abuse, prostitution, exam malpractices and immoral activities that may mar your sojourn in this institution,” he said.
