It’s not easy to expel students – Unilorin VC



The Vice-Chancellor of the University of Ilorin (UNILORIN), Prof. AbdulGaniyu Ambali, has said that expelling students from the University for cultism or other anti-social activities is a painful but necessary action the University management occasionally takes to protect the lives and well-being of majority of other students.
Prof. Ambali stated these last Friday (June 12, 2015), while receiving the new Director of the Kwara State Command of the Department of State Services (DSS), Mr. V. Duru, who visited him in his office.
The Vice-Chancellor expressed satisfaction with the service the DSS has been rendering to the University in ensuring peace and stability on campus.
He also said that as a citadel of learning and character – moulding, the University cannot afford to produce bad citizens for the society.
Maintaining that it is not easy to manage 35,000 students, who come from diverse backgrounds, Prof. Ambali called for the continued support of the DSS. “Through your cooperation, we have been able to maintain peace on campus and discipline among our students”, he said.
The Vice-Chancellor told the DSS Director that Unilorin has staff from the 36 states of the federation, adding that the University is desirous of improving the access of Nigerians to education without compromising the quality of education it provides.
In his remarks, the DSS Director Mr. Duru, commended the University for the stable academic calendar it had enjoyed over the years and promised to sustain the cordial relationship between the Service and the University.
Mr. Duru also advised the University on areas where security need to be beefed up, saying that a generally acknowledged peaceful campus like Unilorin is, ironically, a veritable target of trouble makers, who would naturally want to rock the boat.
