For new students entering the Nasarawa State Polytechnic, they will be prosecuted if found to be involved in cultism.

The Acting Rector of the institution, Augustine Gabu, said the polytechnic had zero tolerance for cultism, adding that any student caught would not only be expelled but would be prosecuted.

The rector, speaking during the institution’s 2017/2018 matriculation ceremony in Lafia on Monday, advised newly admitted students to renounce such membership in their own interest.

He also warned the students against any form of protest that could result in damage to the polytechnic’s property.

“We would bring into full force the rules and regulations guiding the conduct of students against perpetrators of destruction of our properties.

“Anyone caught involved in examination malpractice, stealing, fighting would also be expelled,” he added.

The rector, however, explained that only 1,001 candidates, comprising 901 National Diploma and 100 Higher National Diploma students, were admitted out of 4,000 that applied.
