ENCOMIUM Weekly has again been told that the authorities of Redeemer’s University of Nigeria (RUN) are yet to decide the fate of over 22 students who missed a church service on Sunday, January 25, 2015.
In another phone interview with ENCOMIUM Weekly, on Monday, February 2, 2015, RUN’s Director of Public Affairs, Mr. Tunji Adeleye said they have reported the students to their parents.
“No student has been rusticated. We have put a call through to their parents.”
He continued, “Their parents understand what we stand for. We are a faith-based university offering education with Godliness. There are many universities, but the parents chose to send them to RUN. They know what they want. As a parent, would you want a situation where you are in church on Sunday and your child in a faith-based university is somewhere else?”
Speaking further on why the university maintains a hard line stance on student conduct, he said, “We don’t want to produce graduates who are Godless, who would be armed robbers and drug addicts. Also, this is part of our rules and regulations duly signed by the students in their oath of matriculation.”
ENCOMIUM Weekly had earlier reported that over 22 students failed to attend church service on Sunday, January 25, 2015, defying the university’s rule and were due to face a disciplinary panel. However, they are yet to do so as confirmed by the university’s spokesman.
