Whether the storm is over for this institution is a story for another day.

What we can tell now is that after several months in a limbo, the Ladoke Akintola University of Technology(LAUTECH), Ogbomoso, is trying to get its balance back.

The school finally hosted a matriculation ceremony of new students of the University.

After battling lack of funds for so long, the last thing the Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Adeniyi Gbadegesin, would tolerate is drugs, cultism and other social vices truncating academic activities.

He urged students of the institution to shun these vices during the matriculation ceremony.

According to a statement signed by the institution’s Public Relations Officer, Mr Lekan Fadeyi, on Monday, he advised them to focus on their studies and avoid activities capable of truncating their academic pursuit.

He further urged Nigerians youths to strive towards excellence in all their engagements for personal good and that of the nation.

Daboh, a Mechanical Engineering student of the institution, recorded a Cumulative Grade Point Average (CGPA) of 5.0.
