The college has zero tolerance for cultism, hooliganism, crimes, and corruption. All these unethical conduct considered inimical to the college’s normal administration shall lead to disciplinary actions.’
Dr. Fadiyimu however, assured the matriculants of maximum security on campus as well as transparency in the management of the limited resources that is available for the College to improve teaching and learning facilities which will in turn bring out the best in the students to enable them to stay relevant among their counterparts across the board.
