She made it known that, the school will not hesitate to withdraw the candidate's admission if tested positive.
According to her; “This test is compulsory and will be administered on new students before they are allowed to go ahead with registration. Admission of any newly-admitted students who test positive for drug use shall be withdrawn. Our students must be seen to be good products not only of the institution, but also of the larger society. We want to ensure that we get students who will be willing to maintain peace, show leadership qualities and be law-abiding”
