EKO HOT BLOG reports that the Provost of the Nigerian Institute of Journalism (NIJ), Ogba Ikeja, Mr Gbenga Adefaye, has charged the school’s new intakes to jealously guard their admissions.
Adefaye said they should accomplish this by working hard in their academics, being of good behaviour in general, and avoiding acts that could jeopardise their continued attendance at the school.

Adefaye delivered the charge at the school’s 19th matriculation ceremony, which took place today at its Ogba campus.
He stated that the NIJ was opposed to cultism, examination malpractices, bullying, and sexual harassment, among other things, and that students were expected to follow all school rules and participate in all school-organised activities.
“On our part, let me assure you of our readiness at all times, to protect and assist you so that you can enjoy your stay in the school.
“The school is fully equipped to serve your interest and curiosity academically and professionally”, he said.
The NIJ provost reminded the new intakes that they were expected to attend lectures punctuality and that only in successfully making 70 per cent attendance, would they be allowed to write their examinations.
The provost also advised them to take their assignments seriously because the NIJ is very serious about continuous assessments.
“We are particular about the way our students present themselves. Therefore, you are expected to dress decently without unduly exposing parts of your body.
“Our members of staff have been advised to ensure that improperly dressed students are prevented from entering the classes.
“You are expected to wear your ID card on your neck while in school”, the provost admonished.
He stated that, in addition to maintaining an uninterrupted academic calendar, which results in the timely graduation of its students, NIJ products also benefit from quick mobilization for the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC).
“We have dedicated lecturers and committed non-academic staff who are prepared to be of assistance to you.
“You are to channel all official complaints to the management through the students’ Affairs Officer.
“In addition, there is a students’ ’ handbook which should come in handy in your interaction with the school authorities”, the NIJ provost said.
“Also, remember always that this is a fee-paying institution. You are expected to pay your fees promptly so that you can have a smooth, uninterrupted study.
“If you do not pay your fees, you cannot access the students’ portal for registration at the beginning of the semester. The implication is that you cannot attend classes”, Adefaye admonished.
The Matriculation was attended by 309 students, including 96 with a National Diploma (ND), 112 with a Higher National Diploma (HND), and 91 with a Post-Graduate Diploma (PGD).
