The Vice Chancellor, Azman University, Kano, Prof. Fatima Batul Mukhtar has handed a strong warning to students of the institution to conduct themselves in good character or forfeit their degree.


This was as she said character qualifies them to graduate from the institution and bag degree in their various field of studies.


The Vice Chancellor gave the warning during the university’s maiden matriculation ceremony of students in various field of studies.


According to her, “I would like you all to realize that character is regarded with significance and it eventually qualifies your graduation. Academic success and good character go together.
