In line with the provisions of Chapter F22 (7) g of the establishment Act, the University has elected two Congregation representatives on Council, Those elected are: Professor Adesina Agboola of the Department of Mathematics, College of Physical Sciences (COLPHYS) and Architect Babatunde Anasanwo of the Physical Planning Directorate. However, the three Congregation representatives on the Senate were returned elected, namely; Dr. Adebayo Oni of the Department of Animal Nutrition, College of Animal Science and Livestock Production (COLANIM); Dr. Omotola Jayeola of the Department of Forestry and Wildlife Management, College of Environmental Resources Management (COLERM) and Dr. Dominic Odulate of the Department of Aquaculture and Fisheries Management (COLERM).

In another development, 23 members of staff earlier disengaged from the services of the University, have resumed at their duty posts, following their recent recall by the Governing Council, as part of efforts to resolve the recent unrest, due to series of appeals from within and outside the University community. The decision to re-absorb the staff unconditionally, was taken at the 92nd meeting of the Council, held recently and chaired by Mrs. Susan Oludiya, a member of the Council, in line with the agreement that the Chairmanship be rotated, till the reconstitution of a new one.

It would be recalled that the Governing Council, at its 90th statutory meeting, approved the disengagement of some staff from the services of the University for various offences. However, to ensure that the University enjoys permanent respite, a Council Committee to Investigate the Lingering Industrial Unrest and Tension in the University was constituted, to look into the immediate and remote causes of the unrest. The work of the Committee is on-going.

The Vice-Chancellor, Professor Olusola Oyewole, has enjoined all members of staff to continue to contribute positively to the development of the University, while normal academic and administrative activities continue unabatedly.
