The Vice-Chancellor, Al-Qalam University Katsina, Prof. Nasiru Musa-Yauri, has said that 80 per cent of the student’s population of the school isn’t from rich families.

Musa-Yauri, told newsmen in Katsina on Wednesday, that Al-Qalam charged the least tuition fees among private universities in the country.

According to him, contrary to what is being presented to the general public, most of the student population is from average and low income earning families.

He further said that Al-Qalam, as an Islamic oriented university, was established in 2005 to operate as a community and non-profitable institution.

He said that the aim of charging the least amount of tuition fees was to give the Muslim communities and the general public access to education.

The don emphasised the institution’s commitment to ensure good conduct, moral and decency among the students as instructed by all religions, within and outside the school.

The vice chancellor said the school management was doing its best to ensure that students did not derail from the good training they received from home, but rather improve on their good behaviours.

He further said that the university had zero tolerance for academic misconduct, irresponsible lifestyles and anti-social behaviours that was not in tandem with the teaching of all religions.

“What we have started now is to control, within the university’s laws, the students’ actions, and we have already sent the signal.

“We placed posters where they are leaving that the university does not promote some of the characters that are not expected from them; we cannot accept it because we have regulations.

“The parents of these students have entrusted their children in our hands, therefore, we cannot condone any immoral behaviour within or outside the school.

“You can see that even in their off campuses, we are monitoring them. Therefore, we are asking the public to be fair and just to our students and stop generalisation. We have stringent punishments against immoral behaviours,” he said.

Musa-Yauri appealed to members of the public to assist the university by reporting acts of immorality by students with evidence, to enable the school management to take appropriate actions.  (www.naija247news.com)
