Students of the Ondo State College of Health Technology, Akure who engage in cultism will have their names in the media both print and electronic to serve as deterrent to others.
Provost of the institution, Dr. Felix Olawoye dropped the hint during an interface with parents and guardians of students of the school yesterday in Akure.
The provost who said some of the students have become cultists including female students, noted that most of them were rusticated from other higher institutions before seeking admission into the school.
While lamenting the poor academic foundation of most of the newly admitted students, he stated that they have embraced examination malpractice which according to him is against the ethics of the school.
Olawoye said that it is shameful that most of the students parade excellent result without the brain to defend such saying “most of them cannot answer simple question?”
While noting that the institution does not compromise its standard, he informed that students who don’t perform up to expectations will be sent away in order not to constitute nuisance to the health sector.
He said that it is important for the students to brace up so as to prevent the production of biological weapon of mass destruction in the health facilities especially the Primary Health Care (PHC) system.
The Provost who commended the state Governor, Arakunrin Oluwarotimi Akeredolu for putting in place structures for the students to thrive, called on parents to bring up their children in a proper way adding that they should endeavour to pay unscheduled visit to them at regular intervals.
Dean, student Affairs, Mr Gbabee Sola stressed the need for parents to make necessary enquiry from the school before making any payment in order to avoid blackmail.
Tutor, Community Health Department, Mrs Oladipo Margaret called on parents of female students to take proper care of them to prevent them from engaging in illegal act.
HOD, General Studies, Mrs Olubukola Olagbuji stressed the need for parents to encourage decent dressing by their children.
Dean, School of Health Information Management, Mrs Adelegan Omoyemi called on students to embrace proper environmental sanitation at all time.
In their responses, parents including Mrs Fayehun Titilayo and Rev. Temidayo Ibitoye expressed appreciation to the management of the institution, assuring of their readiness to act upon all deliberated issues for the overall development of the institution.
