Uyo - Ajibola Bayeroju, the Akwa Ibom Comptroller of Nigeria Immigration Service, has advised members of Akwa Ibom students’ parliament to shun cultism and other social vices.

Bayeroju gave the advice on Friday in Uyo, when the students body led by the Speaker, Akwa Ibom Polytechnic students’ parliament, David Etim, paid him a courtesy visit.

The comptroller, who advised the students to take their studies seriously, urged them to shun examination malpractices.

He decried the trend of get-rich-quick syndrome prevalent among young people, warning that riches without commensurate hard work do not always last.
