“You have the right to say no to sexual advancement and molestation, I am a mother and we as parents did not send our children to be feasted upon by old men, but to be protected.

We have centres you can report to, like the Centre for Gender Studies, Guidance and Counselling, as well as, some Youth Friendly Hubs.”

The University Administrator urged the students to be humble, well-dressed, polite and respectful to the staff of the University, this is even as she prayed for God’s guidance.

Egbe who spoke on “University Policies, Rules and Students Discipline”, said it is a tradition for the university to bring together freshmen to expose them to the basic policies, rules and regulations of the University, as well as, other range of services and privileges available to them as significant members of the University Community.

Mr Egbe said policies, rules and regulations are made to achieve certain ends intended to benefit all, this is even as he said the university is a corporate entity comprising the student, staff and Management.
