VC: ASUU, SSANU, Others are Potential Dangers to Varsity Education

Unread postby Wsj » Sun Mar 05, 2017 9:13 am

The Vice Chancellor of the Federal University, Oye Ekiti (FUOYE), Prof. Kayode Soremekun, has described the unbridled penchant for strike and militant actions by the unions operating in Nigerian universities have become a major setback for education at that cadre in the country.

Soremekun said, rather than for Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) ditto Senior Staff Union of Nigerian Universities and others to embrace dialogue that they often resorted to confrontation, which he said had been affecting the stability of the academic calendar and causing nosedived academic standard in Nigeria.



The Vice Chancellor disclosed that FUOYE he superintends over , is considering huge investment in bakery, block industry, healthcare provision , laundry services, distance learning and building of guest house to increase the internally generate revenue of the university.

The VC said this in Oye Ekiti at the weekend after administering matriculation oath on the 3,000 new students that were admitted for 2016/2017 academic session. Soremekun, who described the 3,000 capacity as the largest admission since FUOYE commenced operation, warned that any student found indulging in anti-social activities will be dismissed .

He added that the university was set up by the federal government to boost education in terms of standard , value reorientation and accessibility by Nigerian citizens, saying no effort will be spared to protect the standard from falling. The VC said the university has gotten approval from National Universities Commission to run 19 new courses and that actions are underway to begin the Faculty of Pharmacy to expand students’ access to tertiary education.

He said: “presently, each university has four major distractions : the ASUU, SSANU , Non-Academic Staff Union and the technologists as forces and militant groups to contend with . The Nigerian universities are over unionized and if care is not taken, a VC may end up achieving nothing by their militant nature.

“I believe time has come for the FG to restructure the unions, so the system can work very well , because their militant nature is endangering university education”.

Soremekun urged the Federal Government to financially fortify technologically-based research institutes in the country and market their products to build the economy as witnessed in India and other Asia countries.

The VC praised the FG for making funds available to the university via Tertiary Education Trust Fund (TETFUND) and opening the vista of opportunities to access grants from other sources to execute projects.
