He said, “the era of sorting is gone from Cross River University of Technology to both staff and students. If anyone deceives you and you spend your money that you were expected to use for you fees and up keep you will discover that you have deceive yourself.
“So pay your fees, do your assignment and confirm any payment that you need to make from the Bursar. Don’t pay any money unless you have gotten confirmation from the bursary. That is why that unit is there to protect you from extortion, to protect you from those who are moving around to get your money to survive, there are students who called themselves class representatives, this university do not allow class reps do your assignment, submit them to your lecturers and that ends it, you are to pay no monies.
“I will like you to understand that if you are a class rep and you are caught, the law will catch up with you, class reps are not expected in this university environment”.
Meanwhile on security, he stressed that modalities are in place to ensure that there is tight security in the campus for a peaceful and safe learning and further warned students not to indulge themselves in illegal groups.
