After the welcome address, the Chief Security Officer of the Campus then encouraged students to be security conscious and to learn to give information on any case of criminality around campus so adequate punishment can be meted out to prospective deviants.
He went on to advice students to adhere to school rules and regulations and also not to form the habit of staying out late.
