By Mohammed Kaka

The Federal University of Health Sciences Azare (FUHSA) has organised its second pre-matriculation lecture to usher in newly admitted students for the 2023–2024 academic session.

While welcoming the students, the vice chancellor of the university, Professor Bala Muhammad Audu, called on them to be good ambassadors of the university.

“Since your coming to this university, we have always coached you in both character and learning,” the vice chancellor noted.

Professor Audu, who reminded them that serious students go about their studies all the time, advised them to do so in order to graduate with good results.

“A serious student always marries his book for brighter colour in the future. You have to be hardworking and dedicated students,” he admonished the students.

In his lecture, the special guest of the pre-matriculation ceremony, Professor Aliyu Usman Nafaty, congratulated the new students for being admitted to the university.

“As you are about to sign an oath of allegiance tomorrow before the university authority, you should be of good behaviour and concentrate on what brought you to Azare. Let the university go through you as you go through the university as  well, he said.

Nafaty also appealed to the students to avoid cultism, exam malpractice, improper dressing, and drug abuse, among other vices.

In his comment, the Bauchi North senator, Dr. Samaila Dahuwa Kaila, as a special discussant guest, called on the students to plan for their future.

The senator urged them to ensure that they engage in entrepreneurship after graduation to enable them to become self-reliant.

“You have to engage in entrepreneurship because job opportunities in government are not very available. You better start thinking of your personal businesses,” the senator further advised.

Dignitaries present at the pre-matriculation lectures include the MD Federal Medical Centre, Azare, Dr. Abubakar Dauda Katagum (Zanna Dujuma of Katagum), Chairman Nigerian Medical Associations Lagos, Ogun, and Bauchi chapters, among others.
