University bans students from driving private cars on campus in a new statement it released.
The management of the Abia State University Uturu, ABSU in Nigeria 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 is no news as many schools in Nigeria have a ban on students bringing cars to school.
In April 2021, Authorities of the Adeyemi College of Education in Ondo, have banned the students from driving cars and riding motorcycles on campus.
Also in November, authorities of the Federal University of Oye-Ekiti, Ekiti State (FUOYE) have banned students from bringing cars to the school campus.
In a new statement seen by adepanews.com, The management of Abia State University Uturu, ABSU banned students from bringing cars to the school campus after raising concerns on the use of vehicles by students.
Severe punishment, according to the statement, will be meted to any student that violates this policy.
The decision, we believe to be part of efforts to avoid an ostentatious show of affluence or flagrance display of ill-gotten wealth by students who indulge in internet fraud otherwise known as ‘Yahoo boys’.
The statement 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 students who violate this directive, which is in the interest of the University community, shall face severe disciplinary action.”
