“The polytechnic operates by rules and regulations; the parts that concern students are clearly in the students’ handbook.
“Be committed to your studies with absolute concentration; the polytechnic academic board will not hesitate to withdraw any student who perform below expected standards in his or her academic work.
“You have been warned that offences like examination malpractice, cultism, sexual harassment, indecent dressing and the likes are gross misconducts which attract serious sanctions. Any student caught associating with any cult group or unregistered associations/clubs will not only be expelled, but will also be handed over to the law enforcement agents for prosecution.
“You must maintain harmonious relationship with your colleagues and the host communities. Be of good character and live in perfection with your fellow students devoid of chaos, anarchy, violence and such vices that are inimical to societal norms and values.”
