The Nigeria Army University, Biu (NAUB) has warned all the matriculated students of the institution against cultism and other vices.

The Vice-Chancellor of the institution, Prof Kyari Mohammed, gave the warning while addressing the students during their matriculation held at the university on Tuesday May 9, 2023.

Prof. Kyari stated that the number of fresh students is a remarkable increase from the previous year’s 333 registered candidates.

He also said that the increase is in response to the high demand for the university due to its high academic standard. He added that there has been no compromise on quality and carrying capacity during the admission selection.

He encouraged both staff and students to embrace sporting activities. He stressed that there is now a new Golf Course in addition to other existing sporting facilities at the university.

“There are days dedicated to sporting events to enable staff and students to learn to play golf in addition to other sports,” the VC said

Mohammed said that the newly admitted students are lucky to have been admitted into the Nigerian Army University Biu, which is one of Nigeria’s youngest and best universities in the country.

He further disclosed that all programmes of the university have been accredited by the National Universities Commission (NUC) with a score of 98% accreditation. This shows that the university is a very stable and competitive public University.

“This makes the NAUB a very stable and competitive public university. You must justify the confidence reposed in you by your admission,” he said.

He added, “This year is historic in the life of this university because it is not only the year of your matriculation, but we shall also graduate our first batch of graduates at a convocation on our Foundation Day in October. This is the fifth matriculation in the life of this young, flourishing and promising fountain of learning.”

“Welcome and have a productive sojourn in this University. In this University we train you to be highly educated and productive members of society. The degree you will earn at the end of your study shall be awarded for both character and learning, therefore, you must abide by the rules and regulations of the university and laws of the land,” he stressed.
