ICPC Sensitizes Fresh Students of Admiralty University During Its 6th Matriculation Ceremony

As part of the activities marking the 6th matriculation ceremony of Admiralty University of Nigeria, Ibusa, Delta State, the Delta State office of the Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission (ICPC) sensitised new students on anti-corruption and the functions of the Commission.

This was done in two separate presentations by representatives of the Commission, Stella Chibuzor and Life Kakogbe at the event which also had in attendance the Registrar, Commodore Isaac Mankilik, the Dean of the Faculty of Law and several other high-ranking officials of the university.

While Ms. Chibuzor gave an overview of the Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Act 2000 in which she explained the duties, powers and achievements of ICPC, Kakogbe spoke to the students on the need for them to adopt the right attitudes so that they could be “better citizens and leaders of the country tomorrow”.

He also talked on the causes of corruption, especially peer pressure, and the imperative of the students resisting it.

In his remarks during the event, the Vice Chancellor of AdUN, Prof. Paul Omojo-Omaji laid emphasis on the need for the students to avoid lateness to scheduled activities which, according to him, “smacks of corruption”.

The Dean of Student Affairs, Dr. E. Okonkwo also cautioned the students against lateness as well as getting involved in acts that the university considers illegal.

Earlier in his welcome speech, the patron of the Students Anti-Corruption Vanguard (SAV) of AdUN, Mr. Ephraim Bernard, expressed profound gratitude to ICPC for setting up the Vanguard in the institution saying it was impacting positively on the students.

The President of the SAV, Echela Echela in his vote of thanks, pleaded with all to join hands to “kill the cankerworm called corruption”, after which the students sang the Anti-Corruption anthem.
