A common adage says “health is wealth” Most things that affect our total well-being are eminently preventable. The onus for remaining in health or preventing ill-health to a large extent rests on the individual.
This simply refers to the total well being of the young adults. This particular group of human beings has additional health hazards as a direct result of the peculiarity of their age group. Key problem areas with health implications identified with this group include:
Prevention of STD’s including AIDS
The only effective prevention is a strong determination not to start at all under any circumstance.
It is common knowledge that this phenomenon has risen to alarming dimensions in our institutions of higher and even “lower” learning. Cultism, like drugs abuse, is a very costly pastime. Unfortunately, the cost is often shared by innocent members of the community and has frequently involved lives. While one cannot claim full knowledge of what goes on in these cults, one has from time to time been presented with the aftermath of their activities. No positive consequence has been encountered so far. We therefore earnestly encourage any one who cherishes his life, limb and future to steer clear of these cults.

Unfortunately most emergencies handled at the Health Centre are from road traffic accident involving these bikes and to a lesser extent vehicles within and outside the University campus. A few of these accidents have ended fatally.
