She said sanctions awaited any students who violated the rules and regulations of the institution, adding that the school authority would not hesitate to rusticate such students.
“For those of you who may think that this programme is a mere formality, I will like to inform you that there are sanctions for breaches of school rules and regulations.
“There are sanctions for cheating in examinations which may result to rustication or even expulsion.
“There is also sanction of voluntary withdrawal from the school of any student who fails to register or complete the registration process at the stipulated time,’’ she said.

“We abhor cult activities in whatever form and you must shun improper dressing.
“We take exception to insubordination and we visit stiff penalties,’’ she said.
