AIE programmes and initiatives, the rector explained, would serve as a platform that the students can explore to add value and develop themselves which the college has embraced.

According to him” YABATECH usually support clubs or association that are meant for the positive development of the students, and that is what you are engage in. We should create an environment in where students can learn and their being touched positively for their betterment in future. We reiterated this in our Matriculation speech that students are not in school only to pass but for their lives to developed, therefore they should express themselves, take advantage of the facilities in the College to be able to build their lives beyond the College”.

He hinted that academics activities should be promoted in the institution of learning to distract the attentions of student from social vices.

“YABATECH just released a newsflash to discourage students from participating in anti-social behaviour and the Management will not take it lightly with any students caught culpable. We should have a cane to discipline those involved in social vices, and should have a carrot to encourage those that do not do so”.
