The Osun State University has denied offering scholarship admission to students seeking to study Arabic as a course in the varsity.
In a message signed by the University Public Relations Officer, Ademola Adesoji which was made available to newsmen said the university is not offering any form of scholarship to students who aim at studying any course in the institution.
Adesoji said there was no time the citadel of learning advertised scholarship programmes for any of its courses. He disclosed that the university will not admit students who do not write Universities Matriculation Examination (UTME), saying only through the CAPs system students will be offered admission.
He advised the general public to be wary of such false information with the intent to mislead the public.
The statement reads in full:
The attention of the Osun State University Management has been drawn to a post being circulated on social media about a scholarship for students who wish to study Arabic/Islamic courses at the University.
The University Management hereby dissociates itself from this post and warns prospective students, parents and other stakeholders from believing such statement and falling into the hands of scammers.
We would like to put the record straight that no Department of the University is authorized to admit students as all undergraduate admissions are centrally processed by the University and through the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board. As such, all admissions not formally confirmed by the University Registrar and JAMB are null and void.
All prospective students and stakeholders are therefore urged to contact us through the authorized phone numbers displayed on the University website, visit our main administrative blocks in our various campuses or send us messages via all the authentic University social media handles for any inquiries about the University.
We would like to re-assure our stakeholders that UNIOSUN has no bias toward any religion, or other sentiments.
We are strongly committed to the production of entrepreneurial graduates capable of impacting on their environment while being globally competitive. As an institution, we have committed ourselves to creating a unique institution that is committed to the pursuit of academic innovation, skill-based training and a tradition of excellence in teaching, research and community service.
