The management of the Abia State University Uturu, ABSU has warned students against the flagrant display of wealth on campus even as it banned the use of personal vehicles on campus by its students.
This was contained in a statement issued on Tuesday by the Vice-Chancellor, Prof Onyemachi Ogbulu.
According to the statement signed by the school’s Registrar, Acho Elendu, and obtained by SaharaReporters, the order is with immediate effect.
The statement was titled, “Abia State University Management Bans Students From Driving Personal Vehicles On Campus.”
It read, “Management of Abia State University, Uturu has banned the use of personal vehicles by students and flagrant display of wealth on campus.
“Henceforth, only staff and accredited visitors would be allowed to drive their vehicles into the campus.
“Any student who violates this directive, which is in the interest of the University community, shall face severe disciplinary action.”
Some days ago, authorities of Federal Polytechnic, Nekede, Imo State, banned students from bringing cars to the school campus.
The school raised concerns about the use of vehicles by students and their flamboyant display of wealth on campus.
In March 2021, management of the Federal Polytechnic, Auchi, Edo State, banned students from driving private cars on campus.
