How I Became FUNAAB’s VC - Professor Oyewole

The VC, Prof. Olusola Oyewole (2nd Right) delivering a sermon to the Congregation including top officers of the University at the Thanksgiving Service, held at Divine Heights Bible Church, recently.

 

Professor Olusola Bandele Oyewole, last Sunday, at a Thanksgiving Service marking his appointment as the University’s Vice-Chancellor gave a vivid details of how the Almighty divinely guided and led him to the exalted office, declaring “I had no agenda, I had no plan to become the Vice-Chancellor of FUNAAB”.
Professor Oyewole spoke while  sharing testimonies of God’s goodness to him before scores of well-wishers of members of the University community, led by the Pro-Chancellor and Chairman of  Council, Chief Lawrence Ayinde Olakunle Osayemi, who thronged Divine Heights Bible Church, Abeokuta, for the thanksgiving service.
According to the Vice-Chancellor, God had been revealing to him His divine plan to take him (Professor Oyewole) to greater heights, beyond his imagination since 2010 while serving at the African Union Commission, Addis-Ababa, Ethiopia.
Professor Oyewole disclosed that God spoke  to him on five separate occasions between October and December, 2010 of his great plan for him, adding that he had no premonition that God was bringing him first to FUNAAB.
His testimony, “in 2010, I was serving at the African Union Commission in Ethiopia, Addis-Ababa. Between October and December of that year, I found that five good times, during my personal quiet times with God,  I heard His voice”.
In those quiet-times, I will write down what God spoke to me.  Let me tell you precisely what God told me. God said, “I am taking you to   a height in life that you never thought you will ever reach and which your enemies never thought you will ever attain in life”.
He stressed, “Anytime God spoke to me, I will write it down. I will put the date and I will put the location. I didn’t understand the dimension of what God was telling me”.
Testifying further, Professor Oyewole, who is the General  Superindent of the fast growing Church said that while God was preparing the Vice-Chancellorship of the University for him, devil was trying to truncate it by tempting him with more juicy offers from the African Union Commission.
The Vice-Chancellor revealed that as at the time of the visitation of the Almighty, he was being paid in foreign currency as salary, which was twice the monthly earning of a Nigerian Professor.
According to him, “But towards the end of that year 2010, the African Union came and said  I have to start another project that will serve for another five years.  The African Union was expecting me to be the leader of that project.  They were expecting me to stay for another five years.
But from nowhere, God came again. He said: “my child, go home”.  It was difficult to understand. I was earning a salary that doubled the salary of Professors in Nigeria.  I was being paid in Dollars and God was telling me to go home. I obeyed”.
He stated further, “ So I came back to Nigeria.  During that period that I came back to Nigeria. The African Union sent a letter to the Minister of Education in Nigeria and they copied my Vice-Chancellor, saying, “Send Professor Oyewole back to us and if he is not coming back, let him come and help us to negotiate with some agencies, especially, the government of Germany, on behalf of AU”.
“At this time, I did not know where God was leading me.  Let me tell you that I have no agenda, I have no plan to become the Vice-Chancellor of FUNAAB. I was only ready to obey God and do whatever he asked me to do. When the advert for the office of Vice-Chancellor came out, God spoke to me again saying this position, go and apply for it”, he added.
Concluding, Professor Oyewole pointed out that he became the Vice-Chancellor because he obeyed God and more importantly, because the Almighty had ordained it.
The Vice-Chancellor expressed confidence that he cannot fail in office because he has the backing of  God.
The Thanksgiving Service was graced by the Pro-Chancellor and Chairman of Council, Chief Lawrence Ayinde Olakunle Osayemi, Principal Officers, Deans and Directors, former University Librarian, Mr. Abayomi Agboola, and the renowned Motivational Speaker, Engineer Bidoun Fijabi.

All Eyes On You – Chancellor Tells New VC

The Chancellor, Obi (Prof.) Chike Edozien (Left) addressing the VC, Prof. Olusola Oyewole (Right) while the Pro-Chancellor, Chief Lawrence Ayinde Olakunle Osayemi  listens.

 

The University’s Vice-Chancellor, Professor Olusola Bandele Oyewole, has been charged to constantly appreciate the enormity of the expectations and high hopes placed on him by the generality of stakeholders of the institution.
The Chancellor to the University and the Asagba of Asaba, Obi (Prof.) Chike Edozien, made the call last Friday, when the Vice-Chancellor paid him a maiden visit in his palace, in Asaba, Delta State.
Obi Edozien noted that the high challenge for performance was as a result of the outstanding achievements of the immediate past Vice-chancellor, Professor Oluwafemi Balogun, who was generally acclaimed to have tremendously impacted on the academic, administrative and infrastructural profiles of the institution.
The Chancellor recalled that many of the University’s stakeholders would have wished that Professor Balogun’s tenure be extended, but for the fact that the legislation on the tenure of Vice-Chancellors of Nigerian Federal Universities, remain sacrosanct. 
“Change time is always difficult to manage; when a man is performing well and he has to go, one wonders what next? At a time, it was like Professor Balogun should be left alone to continue the good works, but people come and go”, stressed the Chancellor.
The Asagba commended the painstaking efforts of FUNAAB’s Governing Council in ensuring strict compliance with standard regulations and procedure in the appointment of an acceptable candidate amongst numerous contenders for the chief executive post of the University.
Obi Edozien also applauded the government for its non-interference in the selection process, which he said would further entrench University autonomy, if sustained, noting that “undue interference is not good for the development of University education in the country”.
The Chancellor then admonished the new Vice-Chancellor to combine the astuteness of a good academic with the prowess of a versatile administrator and the shrewdness of a businessman to ensure a more successful administration, surpassing previous records.
The Pro-Chancellor and Chairman of Council, Chief Lawrence Ayinde Olakunle Osayemi, while    introducing the new Vice-Chancellor, said the Governing Council was aware of its responsibility of not misplacing the stakeholders’ confidence in it, by ensuring diligent adherence to due process and regulations in the appointment of the new helmsman.
According to Chief Osayemi, the search for a successor (to Professor Balogun), “went beyond looking for somebody capable, but come with a clean record and widely accepted by all sections of the University community”.
The Pro-Chancellor said the Governing Council was able to conclude the selection process a month ahead of the expiration of the former Vice-Chancellor, thereby, paving way for a seamless transition that was unprecedented and attested to by all participants to be fair.
In his remarks, the Vice-Chancellor, Professor Oyewole, commended the significant contributions of Obi (Prof.) Edozien to the nation’s educational development and the sustenance of peace in Nigerian Universities.
Professor Oyewole noted that the autonomy enjoyed by Nigerian Universities was the product of the courageous step taken by the Asagba, when he spear-headed the meeting of the Committee of Chancellors to broker peace between University Unions and the Federal Government in 2009.
The new University’s Registrar and Secretary to the Governing Council, Mr. Mathew Odunlade Ayoola, was also introduced to the Chancellor.

Succour will soon come the way of members of the University community as the Federal Roads Management Agency is set to reconstruct the FUNAAB – Camp Road.
Rising from a two-hour meeting with the Vice-Chancellor of the Federal University of Agriculture, Abeokuta (FUNAAB), Professor Olusola Bandele Oyewole, with Principal Officers of the University, last Thursday, the FERMA’s Resident Engineer for Ogun State, Engr. Alex Mazoya, disclosed that work will commence on the six-kilometre road in two weeks’ time.
Engr. Mazoya gave the assurance in an exclusive chat with FUNAAB Bulletin shortly after the meeting with the University Management, which was witnessed by the Executives of the University’s Branch of Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), who coincidentally were having a separate meeting with the Vice-Chancellor, when Engr. Mazoya called in.
Below is the excerpt of the interview:
FB: Sir, can we meet you?
Engr. Mazoya: I am Engr. Alex Mazoya
FB: Could you please brief us on the purpose of your visit?
Engr. Mazoya: We are here to see how we can start work on the main
access road to the University.
FB: When are you starting?
Engr. Mazoya: Hopefully, we are looking at another one or two weeks
and God willing, we will be able to bring our contractors to site.
FB: Paucity of funds is always a major threat to proper execution of
this type of project. Are we likely to experience this?
Engr. Mazoya: We are going to ensure that we maximize the use of the
funds for the road.
FB: Great! It’s a privilege chatting with you.
Engr. Mazoya: It’s my pleasure.
Earlier, the Vice-Chancellor, Professor Oyewole had described the reconstruction of the road as a topmost priority to the University.
He recalled that the road had witnessed series of patching over the years, pointing out that what was required was total reconstruction which he said had been a source of nightmare to members of the University community for many years.
The Chairman of ASUU, FUNAAB, Dr. Biodun Badmus, in his comments, said the road is strategic to the University.
“You can only get to our University through this road. One of the ways to showcase FUNAAB is that road. It is long overdue for total repairs”, he stated.
The Vice-Chancellor had during his maiden visit to Colleges, penultimate week, assured that his administration will expedite action at making government effect repairs on the road.
Professor Oyewole said: “The road is a Federal Government road. I don’t think the State Government will touch it. It will be done by the Federal Roads Maintenance Agency (FERMA) and we are seeing them soon”.

The Federal University of Agriculture Abeokuta has entered into partnership with Vegefresh Company Limited to kick-start the production of a complete Nigerian-made Tomato Paste.
The Vice Chancellor, Professor Olusola Bandele Oyewole, has described FUNAAB’s partnership with VEGEFRESH as successful and in line with its tripartite mandates of Teaching, Research and Extension.
Represented by the Deputy Vice Chancellor (Development), Professor Felix Salako, the Vice-Chancellor stated that FUNAAB was ready to work with farmers and boost agriculture in all ramifications.

The Chief Programmes Officer of VEGEFRESH, Dr. Ademola Adeseye Idowu, disclosed that one of the aims of the project was to provide a good platform for research and development, which will in turn help produce high-yielding tomato varieties.
Dr. Idowu said members of the Project Team will be granted access to specific research findings and agricultural information that support industrialized production through the establishment of sustainable value-chains in collaboration with universities, national and international research institutes, Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), Nigerian Export-Import Bank (NEXIM) and the governments of Lagos, Kano, Gombe, Bauchi and Benue States.
The IFSERAR Director, who was represented at the occasion by Professor V.I.O. Olowe, disclosed that tomato is an essential commodity to the nation.
He added that the University had already adopted 100 acres of land, for the cultivation of various species of tomato.
The Ogun State Commissioner for Agriculture, Engr. Ayo Olubori, represented by Mr. Ibikunle Onasanya, commended the initiative, observing that operators of the private sector in most developed countries are the drivers of development, particularly, in the agricultural sector.

FUNAAB Set to Crossbreed Kalahari Goats

Rep. of the VC, the DVC (D), Prof. Felix Salako (Centre) with participants at the Joint Research Proposal meeting on cross-breeding of Kalahari Red Goats.

The Federal University of Agriculture Abeokuta (FUNAAB) is set to start the cross-breeding of the Kalahari Red Goats with the Red Sokoto and West African Dwarf goats.
This is for the purpose of improving meat and milk production as well as to increase the foundation stock of the Kalahari Red Goats from 57 to 500, within the next three years.
This fact was made known at a Joint Research Proposal meeting, held last Wednesday, between the Federal University of Agriculture, Abeokuta (FUNAAB) and the National Animal Production Research Institute (NAPRI).
At the occasion, the Vice-Chancellor, Professor Olusola Bandele Oyewole, disclosed that the involvement of FUNAAB in the Kalahari Project was part of the fall-out of the visit of the immediate past Vice-Chancellor, Professor Oluwafemi Balogun, who was on the entourage of the Executive Secretary, National Universities Commission (NUC), Professor Julius Okojie to South Africa, in 2011.
Represented by the Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Development), Prof. Felix Salako, the Vice-Chancellor stated that interest in goat farming all over the world had risen and according to him, “high demand for goat meat and milk products as well as the relative low cost of production had led to increased goat production in the southern USA”.
He added that as a good source of income generation, same can be replicated in Nigeria.
The Director, Institute for Food Security, Environmental Resources and Agricultural Research (IFSERAR), Professor Segun Osinowo, declared that the imported Kalahari Red Goats cost the University almost 75 million Naira.
He commended the efforts of the immediate past Vice-Chancellor, Professor Oluwafemi Olaiya Balogun, as the chief-promoter of the project, pleading that the current Management should sustain the initiative. “This is a project of national importance and deserves greater support”, he noted.
In his goodwill message, the Deputy Director, National Animal Production Research Institute (NAPRI), Prof. Clarence Lakpini, acknowledged that the goats were doing fine since they were brought into the University.
The Kalahari Red Goats originated from the Kalahari Desert in South Africa and their introduction into Nigeria was pioneered by FUNAAB.

The Vice-Chancellor, Professor Olusola Bandele Oyewole, last Thursday attended the meeting of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), held at the COLPLANT lecture theatre.
Professor Oyewole attended the meeting even as ASUU-FUNAAB emerged the third best in the country for proper maintenance of financial records.
The Vice-Chancellor, who was attending the meeting for the first time in his official capacity as Vice-Chancellor was accompanied by the Deputy Vice-Chancellor, Academic, Professor Toyin Arowolo.
Barely ten minutes after settling down, ASUU Chairman, Dr. Badmus informed the Vice-Chancellor that the branch had just won the prestigious award of diligent financial conduct.
According to Dr. Badmus, “At the NDC conference that was just concluded, we were among the best three that kept proper financial record and book keeping”.
Presenting the award to the Vice-Chancellor amid applause from members, Dr. Badmus stated that the award “is a demonstration of the fact that we don’t just criticize spending or appropriation of fund, we criticize ourselves too”.
Professor Oyewole was ushered into the meeting with a standing ovation by members of the union who were happy to see him in their midst.
The Vice-Chancellor after acknowledging cheers from members of the union humbly walked to a second row on the left side of the auditorium and took his seat modestly, directly opposite the podium where the Chairman, Dr. Abiodun Badmus was busy addressing members.

Attract More Foreign Students – VC Tasks PG School

The VC, Prof. Olusola Oyewole (Standing) addressing the Dean, PG School, Prof. Steve Afolami (2nd Right) during the VC’s familiarization visit to the School while from left are the Bursar, Mr. Moses Ilesanmi; DVC (D), Prof. Felix Salako; DVC (A), Prof. Toyin Arowolo and the Ag. Librarian, Dr. (Mrs.) Mulikat Salaam.

The Vice-Chancellor of the Federal University of Agriculture, Abeokuta, Professor Olusola Bandele Oyewole has commended the Postgraduate School for its contributions to the development of the University.
He, however, tasked the Dean of the School, Professor Steve Afolami, to devote more efforts towards attracting more foreign students into FUNAAB.
This move, the Vice-Chancellor said, will further boost the profile and the quality of postgraduate courses offered by the University.
Professor Oyewole made the appeal while addressing members of staff of the Postgraduate School, who played host to him during his maiden familiarization tour to the College.
The Vice-Chancellor said, “The task at hand is how to make the PG School a model globally, that will be very visible everywhere. To do this, we need to invest more on capacity building of your staff, many of whom should go for overseas training in order to make them better. And we need to make conscious efforts at attracting more foreign students. We must ensure enough visibility”.
He also restated the need to guarantee the quality for academic programmes offered by the School. “It is not enough to say we have Ph. D and M. Sc programmes, it is the quality that is key and important. And that is why we will soon inaugurate a Quality Assurance Team for the Institution”, he added.
The Vice-Chancellor specially commended Professor Afolami for providing what he called “disciplined leadership” and challenged him to look inward, to garner initiatives that will move the University to greater heights.

“I know the trajectory of the Postgraduate School, I know what it was before you took-over as Dean, I also know the present crop of staff. And, I am impressed that you have moved the Postgraduate School to greater heights. A lot of students have been attracted to the school because they believe the leadership is not compromised and the calendar has been stabilized,” he added.
Earlier, Professor Afolami had requested for specific needs, which included the resuscitation of Bench Fees, provision of staff bus and official car for the Secretary to PG School, Internet connectivity and tuition-free incentive for First Class graduates.
Speaking at the occasion, the Secretary/Deputy Registrar, Mr. Obafemi Oginni disclosed that student enrolment, which stood at 73 for Postgraduate Diploma students, 252 Master students and 79 Ph.D students in the 2008/2009 session, had increased astronomically to a total of 304 Postgraduate students, 38 Ph.D, 164 Academic Masters, 61 Professional Masters and 78 Diplomas, who graduated during the 20th Convocation Ceremony.

Colleges Tasked On Strategic Plan, Accreditation, Research Grants, Others

The VC, Prof. Olusola Oyewole (Right) addressing COLNAS staff during his familiarization visit to the College.

The Vice-Chancellor, Professor Olusola Bandele Oyewole, has charged Colleges of the University to evolve a two-year Strategic Plan, encapsulating their Vision and Mission Statements for  academic and physical development.
Professor Oyewole also tasked the Colleges on the need to repackage their curricula, in line with the global best practices, to make graduates of the University marketable locally and in the world at large.
The Vice-Chancellor handed down the charge to Deans of Colleges while addressing Academic and Non-teaching Staff during his maiden official familiarisation visits to them.

Reflecting on the contents of the Handing-over Notes presented to him by his predecessor, Professor Oluwafemi Olaiya Balogun on his assumption of office, the Vice-Chancellor noted with dismay that the Hand-over notes of many Colleges were deficient on Vision and Mission Statements.

According to him, “I am somebody who likes planning because; I want to assess myself in order to know whether I am moving forward or not. For us to move forward as a University, we need vision”.
He stressed, “It is good for us to have a way of assessing what we are doing and what we are not doing. You can study the University’s Vision and Mission Statements and then synchronise yours towards their ideals”.
The Vice-Chancellor disclosed that he had directed the Director of Academic Planning to “draw up a mini-strategic plan” adding that it had become mandatory for all Colleges to have a 2-year strategic plan, in order to enhance service delivery and development of the University.
Speaking further, Prof. Oyewole challenged the Colleges to repackage their curricula by modifying their courses in line with modern trends, to make the products of the University competitive and of high value in the global market.
He frowned that a situation where some Colleges are still using the same curricula that were packaged 24 years ago, at the inception of the University, to teach contemporary students as barbaric and counter-productive.
According to him, “our Colleges are still using the curricula of 24 years ago.  Our courses are due for reconstruction. The degrees we are running are getting out of tune, there is the urgent need to repackage our programmes, in order to become more marketable.
Professor Oyewole also pleaded with staffers of the University to ensure the success of the forthcoming accreditation exercise and webometrics ranking.
He stated that it behoved staffers that are involved in the two exercises to put in their best, more-so that the National Universities Commission (NUC) is carrying out a fresh accreditation exercise while the next webometrics assessment is due next month (July).
“NUC just informed of us of its readiness to carry out fresh accreditation exercise.  The accreditation affects all of us in the University, the Departments in particular.  Don’t let us wait till accreditation time before we start preparing, before we start packaging our courses.
“All the programmes of the University will go through fresh accreditation.  The question now is, how can we get accredited in the next exercise? We need to get facilities on ground.  The issue of personnel is very important.      We can’t afford to fail the accreditation.  Whatever we can do, let’s put in our best”, he added. 
Commenting on the stability of academic calendar and the need to sustain the webometrics ranking, Professor Oyewole declared that, “webometrics may not on its own mean quality, but it is making us to be quality conscious”. 
“The month of July is when we are going to be rated.  Between now and July, people will  be accessing our web site.  I want to plead with you, whatever we can do to ensure stability of our calendar, let us do it for the progress of the University because our students and their parents now have more confidence in the University because of the stability of our calendar”.
Speaking further, the Vice-Chancellor decried the misconception that e-examination was responsible for low performance of students, in the recent time.
According to him, “They told me that the quality of education is going down because of e-examination.  It is like we don’t remember that before the advent of e-exams, it takes at least two months to mark students’ scripts”
“The only thing I don’t like about it is that  in the system, it  is done once and for all. For it to be effective, we need to modify it.  Let us give room for three or four e-exams in a semester for it to be effective.   I want to assure you that it is the function of the Senate and it will look into it”, he added.
Responding to questions on the conduct of the University’s Ph.D programmes and the ongoing 2012/2013 admission exercise, Professor Oyewole appealed to Lecturers not to unnecessarily delay their Ph.D students, while assuring that admission for undergraduates, as usual , will be based on merit.
His words, “I want to challenge us, this idea of making a Ph.D student to suffer for six years, doing his programme is not good. While I want you to properly do your job, we should not unnecessarily delay them”
“Let me also inform that in the last three days, I have been receiving various requests for admission of candidates into the University.
I received 19 requests from a particular person. We shall be fair to everybody. Tell your children to study hard”
On research grants and workshops, the Vice-Chancellor stated that laboratories are equipped through research proposals and research grants. “Within the next three weeks, Research Africa is giving us a trial, to enable some of our academic staff search for grants. We are committed to research and we are committed to grants”.
“On workshops, I want to appeal to our academic staff, don’t let us just go for workshop, plan your workshop and bring people into our campus. We have in front of the Vice-Chancellor’s Lodge, a 24 room en-suite that is specially designed for conferences and workshops.  Let’s make good use of it”, he said.
Professor Oyewole revealed that prior to his interview for the post of the Vice-Chancellor; he went on a private tour of the campus, to have a better knowledge of the facilities on ground.
The Vice-Chancellor stressed that he was amazed at the high level of facilities on ground, adding that he was proud of the University to see how FUNAAB students through the Community Based Farming Scheme (COBFAS) had impacted the socio-economic and academic life of the youths and their host communities.

-Unfolds Action Plan

VC, Prof. Olusola Bandele Oyewole

The Vice-Chancellor, Professor Olusola Bandele Oyewole has unveiled his administration’s immediate plan of action for the overall development of the University.
Professor Oyewole disclosed that the action plan involves the speedy completion of some on-going key projects that he said were paramount to him and germane to the development of the University.
The projects are the ongoing 3,000-capacity Auditorium, 2,000-capacity Lecture Theatre and the 500-seater central Computer Laboratory, while plans are already in the pipeline to commence the construction of three laboratories of 1,000-capacity each.
“I pray that it will be the last time that our Convocation Ceremony will hold under canopy because all my efforts are now geared towards the completion of the 3,000-capacity Auditorium, to host future programmes.
On the three set of 1,000-capacity laboratories, the Vice-Chancellor said they “will be targeted at our foundation level classes” while “the 2,000-capacity Lecture Theatre will also give additional succour to our students.”
The Vice-Chancellor, however, assured that more infrastructural projects will be executed while more buses will be bought for the students by his administration because his predecessor, Professor Oluwafemi Balogun, had put in place a “solid template”, for the funding of such projects.
Professor Oyewole reiterated never to pull down the legacies of any of his predecessors but will rather continue their good works.
His words, “with what Professor Balogun has done, it will be very difficult for any Vice-Chancellor to fail. He has put some solid templates down.
For instance, whatever money that we make through IGR, 40 per cent will be committed to physical development; whether you like it or not, there will be new buildings. We are also going to collect Acceptance Fee and it will be committed to students’ welfare.     Therefore, for our students in particular, we shall be having new buses on the roads”, he stated.
Speaking on the roads connecting the University with Camp, Professor Oyewole decried the deplorable state of the Camp/Alabata Road, describing it as an ‘eye sore’.
The Vice-Chancellor stated that “the road is a Federal Government Road. I don’t think the State Government will touch it but I am happy to inform you that the Federal Government has allocated money for the reconstruction of the road in the 2012 Budget and it will be done by the Federal Road Maintenance Agency (FERMA) and we are seeing them soonest”.
Professor Oyewole pointed out that while it is good to build infrastructure, “it is of more importance to our administration now to build people and equipment, to uphold the infrastructure. It is high time we improved the quality of ourselves and our equipment”.
The Vice-Chancellor later paid an on-the-spot assessment visit to the construction work on the 3,000-capacity Auditorium, College of Veterinary Teaching Hospital and the new road, being proposed by the University.

VC Promises Better Amenities on Campus

Members of the University community have been assured of improved water, power supply, Internet services and other amenities on campus.
The Vice-Chancellor, Professor Olusola Bandele Oyewole, gave the assurance during his maiden official familiarisation visits to Colleges of the University.
Addressing Academic and Non-Teaching staff, who received him at their respective Colleges, Prof. Oyewole noted “I know that in every College we have common and peculiar problems”.
The Vice-Chancellor was accompanied by Principal Officers and Directors of essential services, namely the Director of Works and Services, Engr. (Mrs.) Omolola Banjo and the Director, Physical Planning Unit, Mr. B. A. Ayodele.

Professor Oyewole stated that he had noted identified challenges by promptly visiting the affected Colleges, in company of Engr. (Mrs.) Banjo and the Director, Information and Communications Resource Centre (ICTREC), Dr. Abayomi Oguntoye, for necessary intervention.
The Vice-Chancellor commended the Director of Works and Services, for making good her promise to ensure at least a six-hour un-interrupted power supply to academic buildings, between 8 am and 2 pm on a daily basis.
“I have directed Works and Services to ensure uninterrupted power supply in our academic buildings and I want to thank the Director because she had assured that there will be electricity between 8.00 am and 2.00 pm; that is six hours in our academic buildings”.
Admitting that the six-hour supply of electricity to academic buildings would be a temporary corrective measure, Professor Oyewole disclosed that Management had resolved to evolve a lasting solution by procuring an alternative energy source, through the turbine.
According to him, “What we are doing to fix electricity problem is to look for alternatives but I tell you, we are not going to the old time, when we spent days without electricity. This new administration is seeking for alternative source of energy”.
“I think we need about N630 million to get the Turbine but we are not going to spend our money. We don’t even have such. We have been telling Banks to assist us and if you have a better alternative, don’t keep it to yourself. Whatever proposal you bring, will get my attention”, he added.

FUNAAB’s Graduates are Distinguished – VC

Prof. Oyewole made this declaration during the Opening Ceremony of a 3-day workshop organized by the FUNAAB Universal Conservices Limited (FUCONS) in collaboration with Integrated Media Concept (IMC) Limited.
Declaring the workshop open, the Vice-Chancellor noted that the training in geographical information system and remote sensing was imperative for today’s society, which according to him “will help in developing intelligent solution to the revolving social problems”.
Earlier in his Welcome Address, the Director, FUCONS, Prof. Francis Sowemimo, enumerated FUNAAB’S achievements with its recent ranking by Cybermetrics as 2nd in Nigeria and 35th in Africa.

Speaking at the occasion, the Registrar, Mr. Mathew Ayoola, encouraged the outgoing corps members to be good citizens, advising that they should see their leaving as an opportunity for greater advancement in life.
Represented by the Deputy Director, Establishment Matters (Senior Staff), Mr. Omowon Agbotoba, the Registrar charged the outgoing corps members to be responsible and hardworking.
Clarifying the worries on retaining corps members in the University, he stated that FUNAAB does not discriminate, noting that there are equal employment opportunities for anyone who applies whenever vacancies are advertised.
However, he appreciated the outgoing corps members for their peaceful conduct in FUNAAB and Ogun State and wished them best of luck in their future endeavours.
Commenting on their experiences, one of the corps members, Mr. Taoreed Taiwo, described his stay as wonderful, adding that he almost wished not to leave.
While Mr. Raji Ibrahim, one of the in-coming  Batch A corps members, thanked the management and the immediate past Vice-Chancellor, Professor Oluwafemi Olaiya Balogun, for the opportunity given them to serve in “this great University”.
Ibrahim stated that a major problem faced by corps members posted to FUNAAB is rejection, while pleading that, the University management should try as much as possible to reduce the rate of rejection of corps members, so as to alleviate the sufferings of the batch coming after them.
The outgoing Internal Corps Liaison Officer (ICLO), Miss Titilope Oriade, expressed gratitude to the management and staff of FUNAAB for their supportive roles to the corps members, adding that to whom much is given, much is expected.
The high point of the day was the presentation of a sign-post to the University by the Corps members.
Miss Oriade however pleaded that a bus should be made available to the corps members every Thursdays, during their Community Development Service (CDS) days, to ameliorate their weekly sufferings, each time they travel to Odeda Local Government Council headquarters for the programme.

The University has made “appropriate plans” for a smooth accommodation and integration of freshers for the 2012/2013 Academic session.
The Vice-Chancellor, Professor Olusola Bandele Oyewole, disclosed this while fielding questions from newsmen after monitoring the conduct of the Post-University Tertiary Matriculation Examination (POST-UTME), at designated Centres on Campus.
Professor Oyewole stated that prior to the conduct of the examination, Management had determined the number of candidates that could be offered admission, based on the capacity of facilities on ground.
Professor Oyewole revealed that with the parameter used, with a sincere approximation of existing facilities, the University may not be able to admit more than 3,500 students for the 2012/2013 academic session.
According to him, “last year we had 20,000 candidates for the post-UTME, but right now it has increased to 31,500. We have made appropriate plans to accommodate new students; our capacity may not go beyond 3,500 students”.
Speaking  further, Professor Oyewole stated that “our intention now is to improve on our facilities by building new classrooms and providing more learning aids to accommodate additional students”.
Commenting on the conduct of the Post-UTME, which he had earlier monitored at designated centres on campus, the Vice-Chancellor, beaming with smile, described it as satisfactory.
He attributed the good conduct of the examination to the high level preparation by the Management, coupled with the dedicated commitment of staff, put paid to the smooth conduct of the exercise.
His words, “The Management has no doubt, done its best. Also important is the fact that we have good staff who are highly committed. That is why things have been going on smoothly since morning without any hitch”.

Thereafter, Oba Tejuosho offered his blessing praying, “Our good Lord will bless you in Jesus name. You have met a very high standard.  The standard Professor Oluwafemi Olaiya Balogun has set would have been very difficult to match by any other Vice-Chancellor; by the good grace of God you will surpass that standard in Jesus name.

Receiving him in his palace, the Olubara, Oba Omolade, described Professor Oyewole’s appointment as God’s will, charging him not to distance himself from the counsel of royal fathers, as well as fostering the cordial relationship between the gown and the town.
Like the Vice-Chancellor, the new Registrar was roundly blessed by the royal fathers at their palaces, praying God to use him as an instrument to further oil the wheels of progress of the University.
