Nekede Poly bans students from driving private cars on campus

The Rector of the Federal Polytechnic, Nekede, Imo State, Dr. Michael Arimanwa, has banned students from driving private cars on campus.

Arimanwa stated this in a circular dated January 29, 2022 and signed by B.O Dara, for the Registrar after an emergency meeting.

It was gathered that the management took the decision to ban students from driving private cars on campus following cult activities which have resurged in the school after a long break.

The circular reads: “Management at its Emergency Management meeting deliberated on the use of vehicles by students and their flamboyant display of wealth on campus.

“After thorough deliberation, Management therefore directed that students are hereby banned from driving their vehicles into the campus.

“Only (members of) staff are allowed to drive into the campus as the staff would be identified by presentation of their ID card.

“The staff who has lost their ID card should obtain a letter of identification from the Registrar. The letter of identification must bear the staff’s passport photograph.”

The circular advised students using vehicles to stop at the gate.

“All students must always have their identity cards with them while on the school’s campus,” the circular added.

Speaking also on the issue, the institution’s Public Relations Officer, Ever Nwosu said that the students who drove had been unruly.

“They drive recklessly in the school, abusing people even sometime knocking people down with their reckless driving.’’


“They will be displaying in the school halls and they attempt to beat any lecturer who dares to challenge them.”
