UNILAG Vows To Withdraw Admission Of New Students Who Test Positive To Hard Drugs

The University of Lagos is to screen its newly-admitted students for hard drugs, an official said on Wednesday.

The university’s Principal Assistant Registrar, Communication Unit, Mrs Taiwo Oloyede, warned  that the university would not hesitate to withdraw admission of  new students who would test positive to hard drugs.

Oloyede spoke in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN). According to her, the screening is  to ensure a drug-free academic community as well as promote peaceful co-existence.

She said that all newly-admitted students would undergo the screening before registration.


“This test is compulsory and will be administered on new students before they are allowed to go ahead with registration.

“Admission of any newly-admitted students who test positive to drug use shall be withdrawn.

“Our students must be seen to be good products not only of the institution, but the larger society.

“We want to ensure that we get students who will be willing to maintain peace, show leadership qualities and be law-abiding,” she said.
