Akwanga - Musa Jwan, the Provost of Hill College of Education, Gwanje, Akwanga, Nasarawa state, has threatened to handover any student caught indulging in cultist activities to law enforcement agencies for prosecution.
The provost issued the threat on Saturday at the 2015/2016 Matriculation Ceremony of the eight set of students of the college at Gwanje village of Akwanga local government area of the state.
According to him, the decision is necessitated by the alarming rate of social vices in the country.
He warned that students caught indulging in other vices like examination malpractice, drunkenness, drug abuse, indecent dressing and idolatry, among others, would be sanctioned accordingly, if caught.
He stressed that such students would be made to face the schools internal disciplinary committee.
``I want to advise all our students, most especially those that are newly matriculated, to shun all social vices and stay away from bad company.
Full wrath of the law
``Those guilty of one bad thing or the other before getting admitted in this college should desist, because the management has set machinery in motion to do a background check.
``Anyone who has not stopped and is caught indulging in any of the acts that contravened the rules governing the college will face the full wrath of the law,” he said.
While noting that over 500 students were matriculated, the provost said the college has well equipped library and laboratory for conducive learning of both staff and students.
He expressed hope that with the improved manpower and facilities in place, the college would be given full accreditation soon.
In a good will message, Alhaji Luka Habu, the Village Head of Gwanje, commended the proprietor for citing the college in his community.
He said that the establishment of the school has improved economic activities in the community.
He therefore appealed to the state government to support the college by providing borehole and pay the workers’ salary and school fees, to enable parents meet the academic needs of their children.
Mr Bature Yusuf, Secretary of Akwanga Local Government Council, assured the school that despite the shortfall in resources, the council would provide the school with a borehole.
