Plagiarism is a serious crime in the United States, Special Adviser to the President on Niger Delta, Hon. Kingsley Kuku has warned.
Admonishing 36 students from the Niger Delta region departing for the United States of America for undergraduate studies, Kuku advised them to manage their upkeep allowances prudently and shun ostentatious lifestyle in order not to be broke and run into temptations.
Speaking through his Technical Assistant and Head of the Reintegration Unit, Mr. Lawrence Pepple at an orientation programme for the students in Abuja on Friday, Kuku noted that while many may have indulged in plagiarism in Nigeria and escaped the long arm of the law, it is a different kettle of fish in the United States of America and is considered as one of the worst crimes there.
He therefore urged them to be good ambassadors of Nigeria everywhere they find themselves.
