Admonishing the students to see their stay in FUNAI as a rare privilege considering the thousands of their contemporaries that sought for admission but could not get it, Prof. Nwajiuba warned them against indulging in vices like prostitution, alcoholism, smoking, drug abuse and the likes, noting that such would ruin their lives.
“There are so much you can do with your talents other than the so called campus attractions”, he stated.
